Little governors camp.
Little Governors camp is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole teeming with both birds and wildlife. The 17 identical tents at the camp stretch out along the edge of the marsh from close to the main areas to about 250m away.
The camp has the best ‘bush’ atmosphere of the three Governors’ camps: you’re rarely in any doubt that you’re in the African savannah. The camp is one of only a handful of places to stay in the Mara Triangle sector of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. It has won a place in the hearts of many safari-goers and has been a favourite with visitors to the Maasai Mara since the 1970s.
Located on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve, the camp is accessed by a very short 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 marsh in front of camp.
Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air, and the resident families of warthogs frequently wander amongst the tables. Since all Governors’ properties are unfenced, all kinds of wildlife visit the camp and guests may need to make way for elephants which often visit during lunch time! In the evening, a warming log fire burns in front of the bar tent, and a candlelit dinner is served in the nearby dining tent.
Little Governors’ runs on 100% solar power and has been awarded a Gold Eco-Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.
