LGC is a wonderful small tented camp, perfect for a short 3-night fly-in safari. Staff and service is excellent, and our knowledgeable driver Oliver made sure we got to see everything we dreamed of. I'd rate it 4 1/2 stars... totally love the intimate small camp but at the same price level other locations now offer individual plunge pools or... More

We spend three nights here and were absolutely thrilled with the location on the marsh where we could observe elephants, warthogs, crown cranes, and one night a pride of 13 lions! Our safari guides provided thrilling drives through the Maasai Mara National Reserve and then we returned to our lovely tents with hot showers and delicious meals. If I have... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in Little Governors' Camp. We were warmly greeted and given a damp towel and fruit juice and a welcoming smile. From that moment on we felt that everyone was very happy to ensure that everything was going to run smoothly and it did. The tent was very comfortable and had views of the... More

Little Governors was bliss. Peaceful, comfortable camp with attentive and friendly staff. A brilliant driver/guide who made sure we saw everything and went out of his way to make our drives special every time. The resident family of warthogs were a joy to watch, the marshy area beside the camp provided great sightings without having to even leave it! A... More

I have been to the Mara many times, but this was my first time staying at one of the Governors' Camps. As it was my parents' first time in Kenya, we chose Little Governors over Governors, in order to have a more intimate experience and better ensure semi-private game drives. The drives were incredible, due mainly to the expertise and... More

We, a family of 3, recently stayed at LGC as part of a group for an amazing 6 nights. As other reviews have stated, the camp is located in the middle of the prime safari area of the Masai Mara, on the banks of the Mara River. Apart from the "communal" areas (bar, office, shop and dining marquee) the 17... More

But layout and wildlife in camp better than Governors. Food excellent, especially bush breakfast. Happy to cook special food requests. Driver has superb knowledge of wildlife and will be insisting that... More

My wife and 2 young boys recently stayed (Early January 2015) at Little Governors and were very impressed. We stayed for 4 nights and felt like royalty the entire time. From a game watching perspective, the wildlife outside of rooms 16 and 17 was amazing-from the resident warthogs to the always present buffaloes and hippos and the roaring of nearby... More
