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.

This camp was our second of three. We had such an amazing trip in the first camo we were concerned how to beat it. However, there really isn't any beating as each camp is unique. Our experience here was superb. We used it to get some R & R. We did the balloon flight which was quite simply the best... More

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
