I stayed at Little Governors' Camp on the recommendation of a friend. Traveling by myself I was a little nervous. My stay could not have been more comfortable. Without exception, all of the staff were warm, open and friendly. Openly sharing their own stories and about their culture and country. I felt safe and looked after for the 4 days...

Stayed at Little Governor's on a friend's recommendation. I could not have been happier with the camp and whole experience. Great food and accommodations at the camp. I saw quite a few animals just sitting in front of my tent. The game drives were amazing and Jackson was an excellent guide.

Our son paid for us to come here for part of his dads retirement present as he's always wanted to go on safari and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 3 nights. The massive beds in the tents were very comfy, the bathroom was large. We had 3 safaris a day with a picnic breakfast on two of them...

My parents in law took my husband and I on Safari at the Little Governer's Camp in February. For any of you thinking about safari, honestly it was one of the best experiences of my life so far. It was made even more perfect by Little Governer's. The camp is open and the animals can come in - that was...

The location is wonderful and everything just works! You arrive on a boat pulled across the river and you sleep under canvas in large, comfortable tents with huge, roomy bathrooms with warm showers. The food is good, wholesome and delicious. The cars, the guides and the location in the Mara are fantastic. I love this camp and it never fails...

This was our first safari and Little Governor's was everything and more than we ever could have hoped for. Robert, our guide, made the trip exceed every expectation.

Beautiful location. Staff are brilliant, especially the guards and drivers. We had some unfortunate news while staying there and they couldn't do enough to help us through those difficult days. Seeing all of the animals is magical and the food is very good. I was expecting more of a legend styled venue but it really is camping - but more...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a forest in the heart of the Masai Mara, Little Governors' is intimate in character. The luxury en-suite tents are tucked around a large water-hole clearing that teems with life. Beyond, lie the grasslands of the Masai Mara and the deep blue Olololo Ridge Escarpment. Arriving in Camp is an adventure, leaving your vehicle behind you cross the Mara River by boat and are escorted on foot through the forest to the camp. ... more   less
