We wanted to try a different area of the Mara after staying several times in the busy area around Keekorok and Mara Sarova. We were not disappointed! Little Governor’s is easy access from Nairobi if you fly- I would not advise driving there as it is too remote. It is better to take advantage of the nearby airstrip, and they... More

This is by far the best accommodation in the Maasai Mara. Truly luxurious tents are complimented by 5 star service with all the little touches that make the day pass so enjoyably. Game vehicles are first class and guides equally first rate. Food is very good. Service is exceptional. All this goes down very well when you are in the... More

LGC offers the best safari experience - eating and sleeping surrounded by wildlife, but kept safe from the herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, resident hippo etc by the vigilant askari (guards). The game park was filled to overflowing of the cutest babies - lion cubs, cheetah cubs, zebra foals, baby impala, elephants etc., making this trip a real photographic experience.... More

A phenomenal African experience! Little Governor's is a unique way to check out the Masaai Mara. Part of the Givernor's Camp (supposedly the more luxury section of the group) Little Governor's is a most interesting and wonderful experience. I have been to the Mara numerous times and have stayed at some excellent locations, but I believe this part of the... More

LGC was fantastic! Not only were the game drives great, all our open air meals were overlooking a marsh full of hippo, warthog, hoofstock, Cape buffalo, birds, etc. The warthogs and babies wandered through camp, too!

Luxury tented accommodation, great company and our guide, knowledgable local Collins, who found game ; lion, leopard and cheetah, and knew the generic Latin names of the plants and animals.

I am not one to be very picky over minor things, however when you spend a small fortune to go on a safari in the Masai you expect top notch service, accommodation, and food. Little Governors needs some updating and TLC. Yes I understand that they might want to have a rustic feel, but you can be modern, chic, and... More

Stayed here for three nights. Awesome well run place. The 17 tents run in a half moon around a piece of wetlands. The camp has its own group of warthogs and ten elephants that wander around and through the camp. Water Buffalo and a few hippos live in the wet lands. A highlight was on the last morning, three black... More

Topnotch service and accommodation. Very clean facilities and food was incredibly good. Having breakfast and lunch overlooking the marsh is so relaxing, my husband and I always said, Gosh I can't believe we are here experiencing this. There is just no word to describe our experience in Masai Mara. From watching a pride of lions, leaving our lunch table to... More

Our stay at Little Governors' Camp was incredible! From the lunch time visit by a family of elephants to the incredible 5 star quality buffet meals, this camp is amazing! As it is right in the middle of the Masai Mara, you are literally in the middle of the action. We saw giraffes, elephants, hippos, zebras, warthogs and a large... More
