Gateway to the Migration

Summary Of The Route and Costs

Spend 3 nights in one of the best wildlife viewing areas of the Masai Mara at a luxury colonial camp nestled right on the banks of the Mara River. After the rains when the first flush of grass turns the Masai Mara’s golden savannah green, the most mesmerising wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place right here - the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Governors’ Main Camp is ideally placed to let you to be at the heart of the drama as it unfolds. Watch as the animals throng on one side of the river and the crocodiles cruise the waters. Then in one heart-stopping moment, the bravest takes the plunge into the swirling currents and thousands follow.

Governors have been pioneering immersive and transformational safaris in the Mara since 1972.  They were the first operators to be permanently based inside the Mara and the site of Main Camp was chosen for its prime location and was the designated getaway for the Governors of Kenya. The camp sets new standards in luxury for a tented camp - one that many return to experience time and time again!

For those looking for a wildlife viewing adventure of a different kind, why not take a dawn hot air balloon safari over the Masai Mara too as part of your memorable safari trip here - additional cost and rates on request.
