The setting is magical. 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.

With the stunning greens and golds of Nairobi National Park’s landscape punctuated by giraffe, zebra, antelope and buffalo lounging near our waterhole, the views alone make Ole-Sereni one-of-a-kind. Add to that the convenience of our location, between Nairobi’s international and regional airports, and our world-class restaurants, conferencing facilities and spa, and you get a hotel that perfectly complements the experience of East Africa.

Hidden within the shade of the treeline, this classic African tented camp, with eight tents and one family unit, overlooks an open plain and a productive waterhole.
