Little Governors' Camp

Discover Little Governors' Camp

A member of the well-known and historic Governors’ Safaris, Little Governors’ Camp is located on the edge of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The camp itself is set in a riverine forest, around a watering hole, close the Mara River with views across the Olololo Escarpment. From the camp you will enjoy thrilling game drives, walking safaris, hot air balloon safaris and Maasai Cultural Visits.

The guest tents are all spacious with polished wooden decks with large verandas to relax and enjoy the animals visiting the waterhole in front. All rooms have ensuite with showers. You will enjoy your breakfasts and lunches in the open air with resident families of warthogs frequently wandering amongst the tables or even elephants walking past! 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.

Special offers: Book for 6 nights and only pay for 5 nights or book for 8 nights and only pay for 6 nights. These offers are only valid until 31 May 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
