We stayed for three days at Little Governors camp in the Masai Mara Preserve. It was truly everything one could think or dream about for a safari. The experience of flying in from Wilson airport in Nairobi, being greeted by our driver Jackson, to the final goodbyes - all was beyond expectations. The flight was about 45 minutes, and we... More

Intimate, close to the animals, safari sightings begin within 5 minutes of getting into the land rover. Collins our driver is beyond excellent. You know you are on a good safari when even your drivers face shows amazement and even he must take a photo. We saw a baby zebra being born, Family of 8 elephants literally parade in front... More

Luxury safari in the natural setting. You feel like you are in another world...the way we were meant to live! Great food, great service, great surroundings. Go for the hot air balloon with a breakfast in the savannah. The views are amazing.

With worthogs living in the camp, Elephants passing through and water buffalo lazing in the swamp you are surrounded by the amazing wildlife from the moment you arrive. Our driver Julius was fantastic and we took picnic breakfasts some days to eat out on the plains or by a waterhole watching the hippos. We saw 3 families of Cheetah and... More

My friend booked Little Governors' Camp for our safari experience and I am very happy with the choice. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the tents were great. The food was also really good and it was great being able to sit outside and overlook the marsh while having breakfast and lunch. While I had my initial apprehensions... More

Visited the Little Governor's camp in the Mara last week. The service was just outstanding and the food out of this world. Service staff get assigned to you when you check in and they look after your every need during the stay. The executive chef cooked up a delicious African degustation menu at our request. The GM added a personal... More

Your camp shows off the splendor of God's creations. From the minute we stepped onto the plane it was an experience of a life time. Thank you George for you hospitality and the wonderful camp. The food was great and everyone was so nice. I especially appreciated Ali and the rest of the guards; they are so knowledgeable of the... More

Most beautiful camp in the Mara. No fences so you are in the middle of the nature. Fantastic staff, brilliant food and amazing animals to watch. Very safe place to be. Guide makes sure your safari trip is a great experience. If you have time suggest to do the balloon safari too (beautiful view over the Mara river)

If I ever wanted to run away from the world I would run here. I loved this place and I wish I could return sooner. Collin was our tour guide for the safari and he was very informative. I learned so much about impalas and elephants on this trip. The Masai Village was the coolest part though...My new favorite colors... More
