Experience The Magic Of Little Governors In That Masai Mara, A luxurious And Intimate Safari Camp
Little Governors Camp was built back in 1976. A camp that is accessed by crossing the Mara River by boat offers guests an exquisite and romantic setting surrounded by the wildlife and birdlife of the famed Masai Mara.
It is a small and intimate camp that casts its spell over all who visit, whether it be honeymooners, families, couples, celebrities, or presidents alike. Little Governors is a special destination for Masai Mara safaris, no matter the time of year.
From July to October, the surrounding Masai Mara National Reserve plays host to one of the last great natural wonders of the world, the wildebeest and zebra migration between the Masai Mara and Serengeti.
Little Governors Camp is one of our favourite camps, and we have been selling the destination for over 20 years now, and our clients still love going back.
With just seventeen luxury en-suite tents all tucked away at the edge of a forest, all with private views out over the plains of the Masai Mara teeming with wildlife. All guest tents offer guests a choice of double or twin beds options.
All guest tents at Little Governors Camp offer a veranda, king or twin bedding options with mosquito netting, an en-suite bathroom with shower, flushing toilet and hot and cold running water.
In keeping with safari tradition, lighting is by gas and kerosene lanterns or by candlelight.
