Little Governors Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Little Governor's Camp location is perfect to explore wildife rich Masai Mara, especially like the natural land bridges for the Mara River crossings during the wildebeest migration. The guides seem to have been there forever and wow do they know where the action is. With 17 tents, this is larger than our ideal but still a great place. Little Governors is a hot air balloon launch site so you don't need to leave at 4am to get there like from many other camps.

Located on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve, the camp is accessed by a very short 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 marsh in front of camp.

All of the 17 tents are comfortable and tasteful. Each has an en-suite bathroom, hot and cold running water, even bidets. Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air, and the resident family of warthogs frequently wander amongst the tables. In the evening, a warming log fire burns in front of the bar tent, and dinner is served in the nearby dining tent.

We do offer a range of spa treatments which can be done from the privacy and comfort of your tent. Little Governors’ runs on 100% solar power and has been awarded a Gold Eco-Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.

Guests enjoy safari drive with their highly trained guide exploring the wilds of the Mara, including opportunities to see the wildebeest migration seasonally.
