Intimate luxury in the Masai Mara

Discover the wonders of the Masai Mara at the Little Governors' Camp. With just 17 luxury tents set around a large watering hole that teems with birds and wildlife, Little Governors' has an intimate and peaceful feel due to its riverbank position. 

Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air – you may even be joined by one of the resident warthogs! Come evening, meals can be enjoyed in the dining tent which overlooks the open plains. The spacious guest tents have large wooden verandahs, perfect for enjoying the constant game activity that takes place around the watering hole.

Paradise in the Mara

Brisbane, Australia

When we arrived and saw the little row boat to take us to our camp I knew we had arrived to somewhere special. The stairs to camp would not be suited to anyone with ambulatory issues. The Kenyan hospitality was everywhere. Hellen was there to greet us, as she was every day helping us with our needs. Our table waiter Daniel couldn't be friendlier. Our guide Jackson was amazing and found everything we wanted to see. The friendly chef was there every day to check that you enjoyed his meals. I would only say one thing and that is the red meat dishes were chewy. We chose to eat the chicken dishes when offered. Seems to be a common problem in other camps we stayed as well. Slow cooking of these meats would make them easier to eat. George the caring and friendly manager was there to greet you every time you came and went on safari. The tents were sizeable inside with a huge bathroom, plentiful water for showers and hanging space for your clothes. They could definitely use a fan in the tents as it gets very warm during the day. Beds were really comfortable and it was amazing listening to all the sounds of the animals at night. I'm sure we had the hippo visit next to our tent often as we heard it grazing on the grass. The view over the wetland was fantastic and the ongoing show of animals coming and going. The camp warthogs were really amusing wandering around camp. Another bonus is the 5 minute walk to go on a balloon safari. Saves getting up really early to get to your balloon safari in other camps. All in all a great atmosphere. Loved it.

Sixth Visit to a Governors' Property.


We had another amazing visit to Little Governors' Camp. This was the third time I brought a group to a Governors' Property. Governors and Little Governors are great camps to bring small groups. Thanks to our guides, Moses, Solomon, Robert and Jackson we had a lot of fantastic animal sightings on our game drives. My 13 guests had a great time at Little Governors. I'm looking forward to our next visit in February.
