Picturesque hideaway in the middle of the Mara

Little Governors was an amazing experience! From the time we arrived to the moment we left, we were treated to top class service and a friendly atmosphere! The food was AMAZING, the scenery is breath taking ... including the frequent visits from the resident elephant Blossom! Our guide Moses was the best!! With him behind the wheel, not only did we take some breathtaking photos but also found some truly beautiful animals to gaze at! Highly recommend this place and miss it already!

Elephants in Camp 5 out of 5 days!


I have been to Little Governors camp many times. As a tour leader I can always be assured that my guests will love their time at Little Governors. The game in the area is exceptional. The camp ambiance is fantastic, the staff are wonderful and the guides are world class. This camp has the best ambiance of any safari camp I have been to. Your safari isn't over when your game drive is done. At Little Governors' camp you are on safari 24/7. We had elephants either in the swamp or in the camp 5 out of 5 days we were at Little Governors on this visit. Two of our guests on this trip were so taken by the wildlife in camp that they chose not to go on many game drives. Instead they read books and watched the wildlife wander by their tent. All of my guests love Little Governors'.
