Little Governors Camp is located in the Masai Mara in a unique area with a constant and unrivalled flow of wildlife throughout the year. The camp is set in such a tranquil and secluded spot, that it can only be reached by boat transfer across the Mara River, followed by a short escorted walk through the forest. Vehicles are left on the far river bank, and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed.
Little Governors Camp casts its spell over all who visit, from honeymoon couples to presidents. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunch time. The camp has just been awarded a Bronze Eco-Rating from Eco Tourism Kenya due to sustainable practices in camp.
There is no electricity, but flickering lanterns add to the peaceful atmosphere of the forest. This romantic setting is a unique honeymoon getaway for adventurous couples looking for a true taste of Africa.
Little Governors Camp has 17 tents consisting of 12 twins and 5 double tents. All tents curve around a natural waterhole, which is often visited by wild animals to take water. The tents are spacious and luxurious entirely under canvas, each with private verandah, en suite bathroom with shower, basin, flush toilet, bidet, hot and cold running water.
Meals provided are of a high standard, catering to all dietary needs. Breakfast and lunch are served in the outdoor dining area, and it is not uncommon for the meal to be 'disturbed' by an elephant wandering by.
You can start the day with a cooked breakfast, as well as croissants and fresh fruit. Lunch usually consists of a buffet of pastas, salads and grills. An a la carte dinner is served in the candlelit dining tent, and the evening is usually rounded off with chilled drinks and safari stories around the crackling campfire, before retiring to your cosy bed heated by a hot water bottle.
Bush picnics and barbecues.
