The season for African Safari tours is about to be in full swing, with last month’s rainy season bringing flurries of birds and wildlife to the East Africa region. The Governors’ Camp Collection was recently honored with the Best International Wildlife Resort award in Lonely Planet’s Magazine India 2013 Travel Awards, having recently hosted a council meeting for the Leadership for Conservation in Africa.

With the recent rainfall, the plains of the Masai Mara now have a both a green flush and a full Mara River, which promises to bring many elephants to the Marsh and woodlands. The Marsh also has a growing pride of lions, eager to hunt nearby warthog and waterbuck. Not to be left out, there is also a new cheetah in the area – a young male residing close to Governors’ Camp.

For those interested in gorilla trekking – the volcanoes also got their fair share of precipitation as well, prompting the Sabyinyo gorilla family in Rwanda to put in extra effort to keep their month-old gorilla baby warm and dry. Now that the region is beginning to dry off, the limit of guests allowed to trek will be increased from just 11 to 80 per day!
