Little Governors' Camp is located within the reserve on the bank of a water point. Elephants, buffalo, different antelope, warthogs and many types of birds are in front of your tent day and night. Elephants walked through camp during dinner on night. The tents a very well appointed and the staff is fabulous.

We had not been back here for over 12 years. Little had changed. The staff were most solicitous and the food was of a high standard, especially the lunches. Our driver, Kasku knew exactly where to go and was excellent. A game drive with breakfast on the Mara is highly recommended. A thoroughly unforgettable experience.

Luxury tents and hot showers are provided by everyone, but being this close to nature, not many. The Little governors camp, located right in the Mara, is a boutique take on the legendary Main governors camp. With elephants just 50m away while you eat lunch and warthogs galloping around the property with their tales up, reminding you of Pumba, being... More

We had a truly wonderful experience in the Little Governors' Camp as part of our safari holiday. From the moment we landed in the Masai Mara we were met with friendliness, thoughtfulness and helpfulness from all of the staff we came into contact with at Little Governors' Camp, including the bar and restaurant staff and the guards, who were there...

Little Governor's Camp in Masai Mara is top class in terms of its location and the truly personalised hospitality provided by the staff. The days we spent here was undoubtedly the highlight of our African Safari holiday. The luxury tents were very good and it was better than what other 4 star resorts offer in the region. The whole place... More

The staff at Little Governors made our stay exceptional. We had 8 people total in our party. We were traveling with three 16 year old girls. The girls were excited to be "Glamping". The rooms were very spacious and authentic. All valuables could be locked up at the reception tent/hut/building . The guards (who were there to protect against unintended... More

The general consensus of our family is that this was the best holiday ever and this was made possible by the wonderful staff at Little Governors. From the moment we were greeted with a warm "Jambo" at Wilson airport we knew we had booked the right place for our first safari experience. Referring back to some previous comments......it is authentic... More

Truly amazing, The staff are wonderful and so charming. We were looked after so well from start to finish. We had a fantastic safari guide who could not do enough for us. He was happy to sit and wait while we observed animal behaviour rather than whizzing off to the next spot. We loved being able to watch animals from... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a forest in the heart of the Masai Mara, Little Governors' is intimate in character. The luxury en-suite tents are tucked around a large water-hole clearing that teems with life. Beyond, lie the grasslands of the Masai Mara and the deep blue Olololo Ridge Escarpment. Arriving in Camp is an adventure, leaving your vehicle behind you cross the Mara River by boat and are escorted on foot through the forest to the camp. ... more   less
