Governors’ Camp Collection recently completed the refurbishment of Il Moran, Little Governor and Main Governors. All the camp chairs have been recovered, new tablecloths supplied, and roof linings added to the tents’ interiors.

African textiles and handmade crafts were used to decorate the interiors. Throw cushions were made from Malian Mud cloth for the tents and lounge areas, coconut fibre lamps were added throughout, and locally handcrafted soapstone lotus soap dishes, chess boards, and statues were created by artisanal craftsmen in the Kisii region of Kenya.

Reverse osmosis systems have been installed to reduce plastic waste and water is provided in Kitengela glassware water jugs at meal times.

Wildlife canvases are on display in the dining and bar tents, painted by wildlife artist, Simon Stevenson, and hanging pod chairs are suspended above the decking and elsewhere around the camp.

The camp also received new beige, rip-stop guest tents. They are slightly wider, longer and taller than before, and feature large mesh doors, with interior cotton curtains. The beds have been rotated to face outwards, and patchwork cow-skin carpets laid out.
