Little Governors' CampLittle Governors' Camp

Check Availability & Book Online

Little Governors’ Camp is a luxury safari camp located on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve. The camp is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole that teems with both birds and wildlife. The camp is approached by a boat ride across the Mara River, then an escorted walk through the riverine forest. Vehicles are left on the far river bank, and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed. The guest tents at Little Governors’  have wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the natural watering hole at the camp. All Governors’ properties are unfenced, and at Little Governors’ there is a resident family of warthogs that wander freely through the camp. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunch time. Little Governors Camp has been awarded a Silver Eco-Rating from Eco Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable practices in place in camp. Activities on offer from the camp include game drives in our custom built 4 wheel-drive vehicles, great for wildlife photography and Hot Air Balloon Safaris (extra charge), visits to the nearby Masai community manyatta and visits to the community and conservation projects we support.

Why we love October in the Masai Mara

October in the Masai Mara is marked by spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Days are warm and the grass on the plains is short grazed down by the millions of zebra and wildebeest who have passed through from the wildebeest migration. Towards the end of the month there are dramatic late afternoon thunderstorms which excites the herds of wildebeest and zebra leading to big game movements and river crossings. Plains game give birth to their young and there is usually a plethora of calves on the plains. Elephant in family groups return to the Marsh and make frequent visits to our camps and the lions have many cubs in the pride, cheetah and leopard sightings are as good as ever.

Little Governors surpassed our expectations, delightful setting, very friendly, cheerful and efficient staff, not to mention the resident elephants who visited regularly day and night!
