What a place! Cannot recommend this highly enough, beautiful location, great wildlife, lovely staff. Safaris excellent, no insect problem either. Food outstanding also. Not fenced so guides meeting and escorting you in the evening as wildlife travel through the camp. We met a bull elephant on the way to dinner one night! Hippos noisy overnight but I loved it,

I went there and many other lodges in Masai Mara and Kenya about 15 years ago in about 4 different trips. Quite frankly I loved them all in different and many ways. After all it is the place - Masai Mara - that you visit. But for some reason it was Little Governors (LG) that stayed with me the strongest... More

This was our first time on safari and after the wonderful experience we had, I hope that it won't be the last. We were made to feel so welcome by everyone at the camp. The standard of accommodation and food was far greater than our expectations. Truly 5 star service in the wild. Our game drives were expertly guided by... More

This place is all about location, as it is right in the predator hotspot of the Maasai Mara, and is built on the side of a swampy area which attracts birds and other animals so game viewing can continue from your tent. The guiding was excellent (thank you so much Duncan) with fantastic close up views, particularly of the Mara's... More

We have been travelling to the Masai Mara for over ten years, regularly staying at one of the Governors camps. I would say that Little Governors is my favourite, the location with the marsh immediately in front of the accommodation is a beautiful landscape. We observed numerous bird life, hippos, giraffe, warthog all whilst enjoying breakfast or lunch. The food... More

During our stay David took over as manager and was excellent with a consummate understanding of the natural history of the area. The staff were brilliant, our driver was Oliver who... More

The accommodation is great as we enjoyed staying in a luxury 'tent'. The safari driver assigned to us was absolutely brilliant; very knowledgeable and friendly.

Little Governors camp is a slice of heaven in the middle of the bush! 17 luxury tents surrounding a swamp filled with birds and wildlife all day and night. Not uncommon to see zebra wandering through the tented area, elephant, hippo, warthogs as there are no fences. The evening sounds after going to bed are wonderful. Three game drives first... More
