Intimate luxury in the Masai Mara

Living A Dream

Melbourne, Australia

What a fantastical place this is! Who would ever expect to be eating lunch with a warthog wallowing nearby or watching a family of elephants grazing only meters from the front of the tent? Who would expect to be woken at night by the sound of a hippopotamus grazing just outside or to see a herd of giraffe go gracefully by? This is all possible at Little Governors'. The camp itself is well appointed and the safari tents have large beds with quality linen and towels. The bathrooms are large and the hot water pressure outstanding. Meals are delicious and the wait staff friendly and helpful. George and Kennedy took great care of us and were always pleased when we ate well! Game drives were included in our package and they certainly did not disappoint. We had the privilege of getting very close to leopard, cheetah, lion, elephant, buffalo, elephant and kudu. Although the rhinoceros alluded us this time, our driver, Ngei, made every human effort to track one down. It didn't matter. Seeing lion eating a hippo carcass by the river and then the crocodiles moving in for their share over a picnic breakfast was such an incredible experience. We will come back to find that rhinoceros for sure!!

It Gave that Close Feeling to the Wildlife.

Budapest, Hungary

It was my first time in Africa and I really enjoyed that closeness to the Wild, Words a lone cannot reminisce my feeling of my stay in Kenya and specifically the Governors palace. Everything was perfect from the moment we booked for that place until the last place we were in that place.
