4 Days 3 Nights Kenya Fly-in Safari Governors Camp Masai Mara

4 Days 3 Nights Kenya Fly-in Safari Governors Camp Masai Mara is a classic air safari for 3 nights at one of the three Masai Mara locations – Governors’ Camp, Little Governors’ Camp or Governors’ Il Moran Camp.

Set on the Mara River, it is the perfect location to watch the jaw-dropping spectacle of the Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest from July to October.

But even when the dust from their hooves has settled, there is still plenty to do: take a dawn hot-air balloon ride, go on a walking safari, ride a horse through the savannah or just let go of the stresses of city life and breathe…

Tucked away on the forested banks of the Mara River, Governors’ Camp is located in a pristine spot of wilderness which is home to an incredible array of wildlife. Perfect for those seeking a down-to-earth safari experience, the comfortable tents at Governors’ Camp are ideally situated for a remarkable Masai Mara experience.

Begin the day with an early morning game drive, searching for Africa’s legendary elephants, lions and leopards or perhaps even witnessing the Great Migration from about mid-year. Another unforgettable way to start the morning in the Masai Mara is with a hot-air balloon safari.

A nature walk, guided by the experienced and qualified naturalist, will have you learning all about the environment, while a visit to one of the traditional Maasai villages will give you the chance to learn more about their fascinating culture.

All the guides at Governors’ Camp have at least a silver qualification from the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association, making them among the most knowledgeable in the area. The camp’s formidable site was established in 1972, making Governors’ one of the oldest tented camps in Kenya.

Safari Itinerary in Detail

Day 1 Nairobi – Fly to Masai Mara Game Reserve

After breakfast you transfer to Nairobi Wilson Airport for your flight to the Masai Mara. It is a short flight, allowing views over the fertile landscape. Your first taste of the reserve is a game drive to camp for lunch and a refreshing cool drink.

Your home for the next 3 nights is the magical Governors’ Camp, Little Governors’ Camp or Governors’ Il Moran Camp. Each of the en suite tents has a spectacular view from its deck – some across the plains and others of the meandering Mara River with its abundant waters.

If you prefer something more intimate, choose Little Governors’ Camp, which offers 17 en suite tents around a large watering hole. It is a secluded retreat: to reach Little Governors’ requires a boat ride across the river and an escorted walk through the riverine forest.

Enjoy the company of the resident warthog family, which wanders freely through the camp, and occasionally stand back for the elephants which are known to visit at lunch time. For that extra bit of privacy and luxury, you can upgrade to Il Moran Camp.

A private hideaway, its 10 tents are tucked into the forest along the banks of the river. Il Moran is a flawless gem, perfect for honeymooners. But wherever you have chosen to lay your hat, take a well-earned siesta in your tent or on your deck. An afternoon game drive offers the chance to explore.

Pre-dinner sundowners around the campfire set the scene for a candlelit dinner before you retire to your tent.

Overnight accommodation: Governors’ Camp, Little Governors’ Camp or Governors’ Il Moran Camp
Meal Plan: Lunch & Dinner


Day 2: Explore Masai Mara Game Reserve

Awaken to something extra-special on day two – an optional hot-air balloon safari. You set out while it is still dark for the natural launch site at Little Governors’ Camp. Follow the light of the burners as the crew gets ready for take-off. And then, as the balloon fills and rises, you are transported aloft in the secure basket below.

From your bird’s-eye vantage, you can watch the sun’s rays hit the plains below, wakening the animals of the Mara. It is a sublime and elegant way to see the reserve’s riches, giving plenty of opportunities for photos and video filming.

The balloon floats at will, guided by gentle air currents. Keep watch for the majestic giants of the plains – the elephants – and the tall, intriguing giraffes with their impossibly long necks. And enjoy the incredible silence and stillness of flight.

You come down to earth, to a freshly cooked champagne breakfast wherever you land, though your head may well still be in the heavens. Then take a game drive back to camp for some quiet reflection before lunch and more game viewing. Tonight there will be great tales to swap over the campfire.

If you opt not to join the ballooning, then you will have a wonderful morning game drive to see the same fantastic sights from eye level.

Overnight accommodation: Governors’ Camp, Little Governors’ Camp or Governors’ Il Moran Camp
Meal Plan: Lunch & Dinner


Day 3: Explore Masai Mara Game Reserve

Stock up your stories with a dawn game drive before returning to camp for breakfast. Perhaps you shall spot an elusive leopard, preparing for a day of hunting ahead, its muscles stretching and flexing in anticipation. Your day follows the timeless rhythms of the park: before the sun hits its peak and the animals seek shade, it is time for another drive.

Have lunch at camp and a rest in the heat of the afternoon, before venturing out again in the cooler mid-afternoon. At night, you may well find yourself around the camp fire, telling tales of derring-do, or penning notes of adventure to enthrall your listeners another day.

But let the night sounds serenade you, for tomorrow there is another expedition awaiting – perhaps a guided walk or an optional fly-in safari to Lake Victoria for fishing and bird watching at Mfangano Island Camp.

Overnight accommodation: Governors’ Camp, Little Governors’ Camp or Governors’ Il Moran Camp
Meal Plan: Lunch & Dinner


Day 4: Masai Mara Fly to Nairobi

The sun creeps stealthily across the grassland, knocking softly on your door. Today you must take your leave of the king of the beasts. After a last, lingering lunch, you are transferred to the airstrip for a flight to Nairobi.

Treat yourself to a final dinner before bidding farewell to your adventure. A transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport takes you to your flight home.
