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. We have recently installed a solar power system in camp and Little Governors Camp is now running on 100% solar power. Little Governors Camp has been awarded a Gold 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.

April in the Masai Mara

April has been marked by plentiful rain. The plains are green, the savanna grasses are growing long and the Mara River and Marshes are full of water. Family herds of elephant feed in the Marsh. There are new cubs for the Marsh Pride, lioness Yaya has two new tiny cubs. Very sadly Rembo's cubs have disappeared, we think fallen victim to the one eyed male. The birdlife has been prolific especially around the Little Governors Marsh where the Heronry is teeming with life.

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!
