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.

October in the Masai Mara

The month of October dried up the Mara a good bit - rain levels have tapered off leaving the grasslands a lovely golden colour that is so reminiscent of this popular wildlife destination. The Loita wildebeest herds have crossed back into the Mara Reserve and thousands more have moved back into the conservancies north-east of the Reserve. Many Topi gave birth in October out on the open plains - a lot of these births were witnessed by our guests and of course excited the well known predators surrounding our camps.
