Little Governors' Camp


Little Governors’ is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked 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 wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the natural watering hole at the camp. All Governors’ properties are unfenced, and at Little Governors’ there is a resident family of warthogs that wander freely through the camp. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunch time. Little Governors Camp has just been awarded a Bronze Eco-Rating from Eco Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable practices in place in camp.


Our Thoughts

The smaller outpost of the main Governors Camp, offering the same activities and same great game viewing but in slightly more luxurious accommodation. Be warned that the initial approach to the camp is by boat across the Mara River so socks and shoes may need to be removed for the landing.

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 warming log fire burns in front of the Bar Tent, and dinner is served in the nearby dining tent with a view over the waterhole, the open plains of the Masai Mara and the Oloololo Escarpment.

Bush breakfast, lunch & dinner can be organised on request at a supplementary cost.

Seventeen spacious luxurious safari tents entirely under canvas, each with private verandah, ensuite bathrooms with shower basin, flush toilet, bidet, hot and cold running water
