Little Governors' is an intimate camp with just 17 luxury en suite tents set 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 recently been renovated. Each one is spacious with an en suite bathroom, and they have polished wooden decks with large verandas to enable guests to relax and enjoy the panorama of animals visiting the watering hole in front. Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air, and the resident family of warthogs frequently wander amongst the tables. Since all Governors' properties are unfenced and in the heart of the Reserve, elephants may also stroll past. In the evening a log fire burns in front of the Bar Tent, and dinner is served in the nearby Dining Tent.
Little Governors' Camp combines the best locations in the Masai Mara with the best-designed vehicles and highly trained and experienced guides to give guests un-matched game viewing and photographic opportunities. Guests can venture out three times a day into the Reserve and surrounding areas, at sunrise, late morning and late afternoon. The camp's driver-guides are hand-picked and undergo a continuous guide training scheme mentored by experts in the field. Having operated in the Masai Mara for over 30 years, these driver-guides have an unparalleled knowledge of the reserve combined with a deep understanding and respect for the sanctity of this wilderness area, its flora and its fauna.
On walking safaris guests can track game, including giraffe, buffalo, hyena, zebra or even lion. At the end of it all waits a sumptuous bush barbecue breakfast complete with champagne.
