The Governors' Camp Collection comprises of 7 Award Winning luxury safari camps and lodges. We are in the heart of the best wildlife viewing areas of Kenya and Rwanda, set in some of East Africa's most spectacular scenery. Our clients benefit from the incredible location and style of our properties, our commitment to service excellence, the exceptional training of our guides and the strong bonds we have created with our community neighbors over the 40 years we have been in operation. We also operate two aircraft which we use to fly clients to and between our camps. Relax and enjoy the diversity and beauty of Kenya's Masai Mara, Kenya's Great Rift Valley, Lake Victoria and Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans secure in the knowledge you are looked after by the best in the business.
For those looking for a wildlife viewing adventure of a different kind we offer Hot Air Balloon Safaris over the Masai Mara. The adventure begins just before dawn. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site behind Little Governors' Camp, flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies as the hot air balloon fills, then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-coloured canopy, you're off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective.
