We stayed in Little Governors for a second time in April this year for 3 nights/4 days for a special birthday - first time was in 2011. Of all the places in the whole world this is the only place I wanted to be on my birthday. We love Little Governors because it is so peaceful and you are looked...

Location is unbeatable. Service is very organized, diligent, gracious, and genuinely kind. We saw the Big 5 within 24 hours (with some luck of course), and were greeted by wild animals in the grounds of the camp (elephants, warthogs, buffalo, a giraffe, waterbucks, a blue monkey on the roof, crown cranes building a nest, 3 crocodiles, hippos...). There is no...

Great location for access to the Mara - big concern for the crowding around migration time and the sheer number of vehicles that will be present. Camp is comfortable yet basic. Main area wifi spot could be better lit, better decored and be equipped with better chairs for folk to sit on and a guest computer. Main area bathroom I...

Little Governor's did not disappoint and fully lived up to its stellar reputation. Everything worked perfectly. The entire team tries very hard to create a magical holiday and succeeds. We can't recommend it enough.

This is the luxury tented camp experience that you read about. It doesn't feel much like camping when your tent has a large comfortable double bed, electricity and hot showers. Open the front flap, and you can view abundant wildlife from your front porch. We saw elephants, hippos, giraffes, mongoose, warthogs, baboons and cape buffalo along with dozens of species...

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
