Everything was perfect from the time we left the airstrip, seeing lions within minutes! The short boat trip across the river was a great way to start our stay at Little Govenor's. Travelled with our 10y.o daughter. She was made feel so welcome by all the staff, and a little spoiled! Many wonderful highlights, from small number of tents, no... More

From the moment we landed our senses were assaulted from every angle, before even reaching the camp we had seen, lions, giraffes, hyenas, hippos , & wilderbeast . The small boat across the river makes an interesting entrance to the camp and on arrival we found the marsh elephants were there to meet us. The two safaris a day (... More

Little Governors' Camp is a hidden gem in the Masai Mara. As soon as we got there, we saw a family of elephants hanging out in the marsh in front of our tent. The tent was very comfortable and the personal wake up calls w/bush mocha's were great. The staff is extremely attentive and I don't think I lifted a... More

We spent 5 days here, had great animal sightings. The camp was great, the staff were great and we felt safe the whole time. The camp has elephants, worthogs, hippos and monkeys roaming around and within it's tents. Will definitely be coming back.

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Little Govenors' Camp. Safaris were excellent and we loved our balloon experience. The camp was very comfortable, with excellent food and service. The waterhole was a real highlight, especially when the elephants visited the camp. We would certainly recommend this location in the Masai Mara.

This is the real deal. From the short ride on a boat pulled by a rope to the warthogs roaming the camp. The staff are very friendly and our driver/guide (Joseph) was excellent. The option to take a picnic breakfast so as to extend the early morning drive is worth doing. The lunch choice was good but dinner choice is... More

Incredible camp - beautiful tents surrounded by hippos, elephants and leopards at night. Stellar security to ensure that you feel protected at all times while still feeling right in the thick of things. Tasty and filling meals throughout a perfectly paced day. Our guide located lions, elephants, rhinos...we were simultaneously fully stimulated here yet always relaxed and loved the small... More

An outstanding experience; open plains, wild animals, game drives with sightings of the Big 5, outdoor picnics by the river, a Masai village cultural experience, added to a truly beautiful setting. A special mention for the balloon safari, which topped all expectations.

My second time there and both times were excellent! The camp is set around a lagoon with resident hippos and other visiting wildlife. It is such a serene place too. There was a herd of zebra standing near our tent when we arrived and the warthog family are always present. Last time "Blossom", the elephant, walked through camp. Staff always... More

Fantastic camp, amazing staff, beautiful balloon safari, superb location.....we had a wonderful 2 night stay at Little Governors, on the first game drive within 15 minutes we saw a leopard!! The location ensures a full on safari experience with the best game viewing...we even saw the wildebeest crossing twice. Unfortunately Governors Aviation should not be trusted. We waited at the...
