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.

July Game Report Masai Mara

July has been dry and rather chilly in the Mara. The big news this month was the arrival on the plains around our camps of tens of thousands of wildebeest from the migration. Soon after they arrived the daily river crossings began, there were dramatic scenes as hungry crocodiles patrolled the waters taking the few they could, and the wildebeest and zebra battled with strong currents and steep rocky exits to make it to the other side. With the huge herds on the plains a time of plenty arrived with all the big cats and hyena feasting on wildebeest and zebra.

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!
