I have been to camps and lodges all over Africa - and LGC is the best I have ever seen. Where to begin???? The staff are truly superb. They are knowledgeable, attentive, and focused. The tents are more than you need with en suite bathrooms and running water. The breakfast/lunch area overlooks a grassy area that has anything from Cape Buffalo to baboons. Oh yes, uninvited lunch guests included elephant and warthog who ambled through the camp at will.
As for the game, absolutely phenomenal. But LGC sets the tone and ambiance.
LGC is not easily accessible. So if you cannot handle steps and/or have balance issues, I suggest you go to Governor's Camp.

- 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. Governors has been pioneering immersive and transformational safaris in the Mara since 1972. We were the first operators to be permanently based inside the Mara, our site was chosen for its prime location and was the designated “getaway” for the Governors of Kenya. Unfenced and right in the heart of the action. Our camps are Located in some of the best and most precious Wildlife Locations in the world.
