From the booking procedure through to the actual Safari, every detail was perfection, nothing left to chance. This is the best Safari Company I have ever dealt with, they really know what people are looking for....Staff at the camp are amazing, this is the best place to realize that number 1 bucket list experience. We stayed for 3 nights May... More

This review is a bit late. My husband and I stayed here for the safari portion of our honeymoon last July (2013). We were there for 4 full days and 3 nights. This place is more than anything I could have ever imagined. The "lodge" consists of of large luxury tents right in the middle of the reserve. There are... More

My partner and I stayed for three days at Little Govener's camp and I honestly cannot find one fault with this establishment. From the moment we arrive until the moment we left we were treated like royalty. It was so hard to drag ourselves away! The setting is completely stunning, the food is lovely, the tents are clean and large... More

We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. We received a very warm welcome on arrival. The setting is lovely with tents well separated around the marsh which is a popular watering hole. When we arrived a giraffe was eating from a tree right outside our tent. From the tent you can see all sorts of animals in... More

I'm sitting on the porch of the tent right now after a long morning trek. Just listening to the bird and frogs and watching the baboons frolic. Yes, baboons frolic! The hospitality is amazing. The tents are clean and comfortable and the food delicious. My friend and I needed to move tents due to a crying baby and they didn't... More

The staff at Little Governors were very helpful and attentve . Great chef with lots of good food. A real treat to take breakfast on safari. Little Governors is in a unique position with easy access to the Mara from both sides of the Mara River (a small boat ride across the narrow river). The bathrooms are a little tired... More

My mother, my sister and myself stayed for 5 nights at LG in January. What a truly unique experience to stay here surrounded by wild animals 24 hours a day. We've seen many lodges before (Kenya and South-Africa) but the atmosphere of Little Governors was definitely the most 'authentic' Africa experience for us. The staff is amazing and unbelievable friendly.... More

We've been to Little Governors on 3 occasions and I expect to visit again. The camp is well located to see the best wildlife, it's a great place to relax between safari drives, and is extremely well run.
