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

I went with a group of 4 people and we all had such an amazing time! Our tents were so cool and it was awesome to be so close to animals all the time! Also, our guide Collins was the BEST guide at the camp and was able to show us all of the Big 5 and so much more!... More

I really enjoyed my stay there and would really like to return. The facilities were terrific and the staff were very capable and welcoming. The guides were knowledgable and also good company. Real standouts were Collins, a terrific guide, and David, a guard who leads guided bird walks. We saw 34 species of birds in the camp itself in 90... More

As a frequent visitor to Little Governor's Camp over a span of twenty-five years, I would like to respond to the review by patwillmoth. First, the staff at Little Governor's Camp is among the most reputable in Kenya. The owners of all of the Governor's properties are highly respected and care very much who they hire as staff..at all of... More

I had a number of items stolen from inside my tent as did my travel companion. Some items were valuable (jewellery) some not (toiletries and a magazine for example). We kept our money and passports in the managers safe but the rest of our stuff we wanted to keep accessible. If you decide to stay here, we would suggest you... More

This is what I had imagined Safari is about. Have been on Photosafaris almost every year for the passed 4 years and like its elder brother, The Governors Camp, absolutely wonderful, but much more exciting and in the bush. Stay up with the Hippos and dodge wart hogs on your way back to your room after dinner. Elephants walked through.... More

We spent three nights at little governors, the staff were amazing, food was great and location out of this world. Would highly recommend it to anyone. We even had wifi! Would definitely return and maybe stay longer.

There's no doubt that the animal viewings are spectacular in the Mara, and this aspect of our holiday was first class. However, given our experience of other Safari camps, Little Governors urgently needs refurbishing and the food was really not of the quality we would expect. Dinner menu offers a couple of choices such as cottage pie or turkey escalope... More

I recommend this place. The staff is all friendly and accommodating and the facilities exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend requesting Jackson as a guide. I was referred to him from a friend and he did not disappoint. He is a safe driver, has a great personality and is an expert at finding animals. I was able to see much... 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
