Flight delay at Governors Camp Kenya

This fantasic picture of a Marsh Lion in the Mara was taken in Maasai Mara National Park, Kenya. It shows the plane that belongs to Governor’s Camp touching down on their airstrip with the Olololo Escarpment in the background. Governor’s Camp and its sister camp Little Governor’s are well-established camps set in a beautiful part of the park. Their air service is brand new and a great way to access the Mara.

Marsh-Lions-of-Mara
Maasai Mara, or the “Mara” as it’s affectionately known, is Kenya’s most famous National Park. It’s particularly well known for the annual migration of a couple of million assorted zebra, wildebeest and other herbivores who move in to the Mara from the Serengeti following the annual rains (which stimulates the fresh grass to grow). The Mara is at its most busy from late July, through August and into September, which coincides perfectly with summer holiday dates! The most dramatic point of the migration occurs when the massed herds of herbivores cross the Mara River, home to massive crocs up to 19 feet long – many of whom eat just once a year, NOW.

Oloololo Escarpment – Maasai Mara’s natural boundary

In the background of the picture you can see the Olololo Escarpment. The Olololo Escarpment forms a natural western boundary to the Mara, rising sharply above the grassland to present a perfect vantage point, and an ideal spot to end a day’s safari looking back over grasslands that reach the horizon and teems with plains game.

Governors’ Camp & Little Governors Camp  – Luxury tented camp

Governors’ Camp sets new standards for the term  “luxury tented camp”.  37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest and enjoying uninterrupted views over the Mara River. The surrounding wetlands teem with bird-life, hippo and crocodile right in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

Little Governors’  has 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole. Little Governor’s camp is accessed by boat across the Mara River. Guest tents at Little Governor’s  have wonderful wooden decks with large verandahs which allow you to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place right in front of you.
