The safaris, the thrill of watching wild life in all its beauty, the ambience of the camp, the great Maasai Mara plains combined with excellent staff and service at Little Governors made this an unforgettable experience. We will return to Little Governors. Rajesh & Pia

We stayed at Little Governor's primarily because it is the launching place for the hot air balloon ride. There is no electric fence or any fence surrounding the property, so you really are up close and personal with all the animals. We were visited by elephants and warthogs in the camp during the day and hippos grazing outside our tent... More

I had read up on how amazing Little Governor's is but it sill took my breath away when we reached there. Words can't describe the experience of actually staying there! Right from when we reached the main car park, followed by the boat ride across the Mara river to the camp and then being in the Little Governor's Camp had... More

My husband and I visited Little Governors for 4 nights at the end of May 2014 for our honeymoon. After a fantastic flight from Nairobi (which is very safe!) to Masai Mara, we were picked by our wonderful driver and guide Maina. On arrival at the camp, we crossed the river by boat to meet David who stood guard at... More

We had an amazing time here - it is definitely a special place. The location is perfect - both the camp setting, around a waterhole, where you can sit and eat lunch while watching wildlife, and the location in the Mara, across the river from the Marsh Pride lions. We returned to camp one day to find a family of... More

We stayed at Little Governors for 4 nights at the end of May. We travelled with another couple. It was their first visit and our second. Little Governors is a little piece of heaven on earth.

We have just returned from a two week trip to Kenya and Botswana. Little Governors was our first camp of the trip and our second visit to The Mara. We loved the camp. The setting is wonderful with your own little wildlife panorama straight in front of you. We had a large bull elephant grazing just a few metres away... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a forest in the heart of the Masai Mara, Little Governors' is intimate in character. The luxury en-suite tents are tucked around a large water-hole clearing that teems with life. Beyond, lie the grasslands of the Masai Mara and the deep blue Olololo Ridge Escarpment. Arriving in Camp is an adventure, leaving your vehicle behind you cross the Mara River by boat and are escorted on foot through the forest to the camp. ... more   less
