Little Governor's did not disappoint and fully lived up to its stellar reputation. Everything worked perfectly. The entire team tries very hard to create a magical holiday and succeeds. We can't recommend it enough.

I spent 2 days at this camp with my son and what can I say everything was brilliant from start to finish our guide Robert taught us so much and showed us some amazing sights. All the staff looked after us so well and the food was lovely.

My wife and I spent three nights at Little Governors' last month and it was a splendid experience from start to finish. The accommodation is perfect for the setting and there can be few better ways to spend a couple of hours than sitting on your private deck watching the resident buffalo, hippos and elephant going about their daily routine....

We are just back from the most amazing holiday. We stayed at Little Governor's Camp for 4 nights, and had the most fabulous time. We arrived into the camp to find Blossum a bull elephant outside our tent, so have to say that set the pace of our safari. The first night out we managed to see a kill, could... More

This is the luxury tented camp experience that you read about. It doesn't feel much like camping when your tent has a large comfortable double bed, electricity and hot showers. Open the front flap, and you can view abundant wildlife from your front porch. We saw elephants, hippos, giraffes, mongoose, warthogs, baboons and cape buffalo along with dozens of species... More
