We stayed at Little Governors for 4 nights at the end of May. We travelled with another couple. It was their first visit and our second. Little Governors is a little piece of heaven on earth. The staff are delightful and super-obliging, the food is world-class, the tents are airy during the day and cosy at night, everything is very...

We have just returned from a two week trip to Kenya and Botswana. Little Governors was our first camp of the trip and our second visit to The Mara. We loved the camp. The setting is wonderful with your own little wildlife panorama straight in front of you. We had a large bull elephant grazing just a few metres away...

Little Governors might be little in name but absolutely huge in delivery. Location is first class and the service is brilliant. Joseph the barman, Stanley and Issa in the dining standout in rendering super service. The food is good but not brillaint and their mango sorbet is the finest I have ever tasted..highly recomended therefore. The game in the area...

Location is unbeatable. Service is very organized, diligent, gracious, and genuinely kind. We saw the Big 5 within 24 hours (with some luck of course), and were greeted by wild animals in the grounds of the camp (elephants, warthogs, buffalo, a giraffe, waterbucks, a blue monkey on the roof, crown cranes building a nest, 3 crocodiles, hippos...). There is no...

Great location for access to the Mara - big concern for the crowding around migration time and the sheer number of vehicles that will be present. Camp is comfortable yet basic. Main area wifi spot could be better lit, better decored and be equipped with better chairs for folk to sit on and a guest computer. Main area bathroom I...

Little Governor's did not disappoint and fully lived up to its stellar reputation. Everything worked perfectly. The entire team tries very hard to create a magical holiday and succeeds. We can't recommend it enough.

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
