In 1976 Little Governors Camp, with its own independent character, was built around a small watering hole that teems with birds and wildlife. This Masai Mara Camp is reached by boat and the exquisite, romantic setting has a serenity all of its own.
Little Governors Camp casts its spell over all who visit, from honeymoon couples to Presidents. Getting there is an adventure in itself. You first have to cross the Mara River by boat, then a short walk through the forest escorted by guards.
The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivalled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.4 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them.
The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with the predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event.
There are just seventeen tents tucked away amongst the trees. From every veranda the view changes constantly as giraffe, elephant, buffalo, hippo and warthog all come to drink or graze. All the tents are comfortable and tasteful.
Each has an en-suite bathroom, hot and cold running water, even bidets. In keeping with safari tradition lighting is by gas and kerosene lanterns, or by candlelight.
Meals are of a superlative standard and is served outdoors during the day and in our candlelight dining tent by night.
Later in the evening it's time for chilled drinks and tall tales around the blazing campfire.
Open bar and dining tent with view over the waterhole, the open plains of the Masai Mara and the Oloololo Escarpment. Curio Shop is open daily.
There are various activities on offer: game drives in open vehicles, game walks or balloon flights over the wide plains of the Masai Mara. Excursions to the Lake Victoria are also on offer.
However, it is recommended you book this excursion prior to the trip and combine the Lake Victoria excursion with an overnight stay.
All ages are welcome and catered for.
