Little Governor's Camp, Masai Mara
Jo and James Thomas
“Fantastic Camp, fantastic staff and excellent game. Thanks very much.”
Little Governor's is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury 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 Governor's have recently been renovated. Each one is spacious with an ensuite bathroom, and now they have polished wooden decks with large verandas to enable guests to relax and enjoy the panorama of animals visiting the watering hole in front.
Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air, and the resident family of warthogs frequently wander amongst the tables. Since all Governor's 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.
