4 Days Masai Mara Luxury Flying Safari - Governors Camp

Weather

Being close to the equator, one can expect the Kenyan ground to be sunshined most amount of times. It is sunny most of the time, dry however not too hot for most of the year.

Rainy Season: March till May and November till December

Central Kenya is situated on a plateau and the altitude keeps the heat index at a comfortable level making the park safaris in Kenya a great delight for most parts of the year.

The coastal areas are relatively higher in temperature and however the sea breeze from the Indian Ocean on the coasts of Mombasa, Lamu and Malindi make it comfortable.

At Mount Kenya there is permanent snow. Western Kenya, being a little far off the sea and lying in central Africa is generally hot and humid.

This luxury 4 Day Fly In Safari to the Masai Mara in Kenya, takes guests on an unforgettable safari to this world renowned game reserve. The Masai Mara, now the new 7th wonder of the world and 4th most preferred tourist destination in the world is a home to wildlife in such abundance and variety that is hard to imagine. The annual migration of the wildebeest and the zebras start from the Serengeti as they search for water and pasture while at the same time being followed on their heels by the predators of the savannah; lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures. It hosts over 450 species of animals which includes lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephants.

The setting is magical at the Governors Camp. So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.

Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best.

Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dinning tent with views over the plains.

Governors Camp has just been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco- Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.

Including migrants, well over 450 species have been recorded, among them, 57 species of birds of prey. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well-spread rainfall year round. Rain, when it falls almost always chooses the late afternoon or night. Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara National Reserve, the sensation is unparalleled.
