Fantastic camp, amazing staff, beautiful balloon safari, superb location.....we had a wonderful 2 night stay at Little Governors, on the first game drive within 15 minutes we saw a leopard!! The location ensures a full on safari experience with the best game viewing...we even saw the wildebeest crossing twice. Unfortunately Governors Aviation should not be trusted. We waited at the...

We spent 3 nights here at the start of our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time. From the moment we arrived we were blown away. We spent our first lunch watching a herd of elephants playing around in the watering hole, which is also filled with hippos. Then we went back to our tent and saw the herd walk...

The safaris, the thrill of watching wild life in all its beauty, the ambience of the camp, the great Maasai Mara plains combined with excellent staff and service at Little Governors made this an unforgettable experience. We will return to Little Governors. Rajesh & Pia

We stayed at Little Governor's primarily because it is the launching place for the hot air balloon ride. There is no electric fence or any fence surrounding the property, so you really are up close and personal with all the animals. We were visited by elephants and warthogs in the camp during the day and hippos grazing outside our tent...

We had an amazing time here - it is definitely a special place. The location is perfect - both the camp setting, around a waterhole, where you can sit and eat lunch while watching wildlife, and the location in the Mara, across the river from the Marsh Pride lions.

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
