Little Governors' Camp Location Map

Little Governors' is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole that teems with both birds and wildlife.

The camp is approached by a boat ride across the Mara River, then an escorted walk through the riverine forest. Vehicles are left on the far river bank, and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed.

The camp is totally unfenced, and there is a resident family of warthogs that wander freely through the camp. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunch time.

Guided game drives go out twice a day into the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve and surrounding areas in custom designed vehicles and exceptionally highly trained and experienced guides to give guests unmatched game-viewing and photographic opportunities in this prime wildlife area.

Or why not leave the vehicle behind and take a walking safari for the true thrill of the bush. Down on the same level as the animals you will experience the untamed beauty of the Mara. The walking safaris take place in a private concession area adjacent to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, where the scenery differs from inside the Reserve and picturesque acacia trees dot the hilly landscape. You will also be accompanied by a Masai scout, who will provide a wealth of information on the traditional medicinal uses of plants and Masai folklore.

The guest tents at Little Governors' have great wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the watering hole at the camp. In keeping with safari tradition, lighting is by gas and kerosene lanterns, or by candlelight.

The main guest areas consist of an open bar and dining tent with views over the waterhole, the open plains of the Masai Mara and the Oloololo Escarpment.

Start TestimonialLittle Governors was a gem. All the staff - the porters to the drivers, the reception to housekeeping, and the barmen to the waiters delivered a truly professional and friendly service, nothing was too much for them and you got the feeling that it came from heart. The camp had a nice intimate feel about it, with a log fire on cold evenings and hot water bottles. The rooms were nice and clean and we ate some wonderful food.End Testimonial
