Little Governors Camp, found in the heart of Kenya’s best game viewing area, is a luxury tented safari camp that has just recently has a stylish refurb. In a bid to further reduce their environmental impact a solar system is now installed with the camp now running on 100% solar energy.
On the edge of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, the renowned property is family owned and intimate in character with just 17 luxury en-suite tents. All rooms have wooden decks and large verandahs, overlooking the large watering hole that teems with wildlife. The camp is located in a quiet and tranquil area and accessed by boat across the Mara River. The custom designed 4X4 landrovers are left on the other side of the river all ready to go when the time is right for the morning and afternoon game drives.
Being located inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve itself, the camp gives guests a unique advantage in the heart of the wildlife action. An area famed for its abundance of animals and the big cats, it also plays host to the phenomenal annual Wildebeest Migration that usually occurs in this region between July and October. With a commitment to service, the exceptionally high training standards of their experienced safari guides and strong bonds created with the local community since setting up over 40 years ago, Governors guests can expect a first class African safari experience, with twice daily game drives in the Masai Mara Game Reserve and surrounding areas, and a visit to the local and traditional Maasai village and community just outside the Reserve. For those interested in the Maasai culture here is a place where life has been unchanged for centuries. There is also a bustling curio market where guests can buy traditional Maasai beadwork to take home as gifts and memories of their trip.
Given the opportunity, an additional activity that should not be missed is a hot air balloon safari at dawn (at an additional cost). Suspended in a basket beneath a rainbow-coloured canopy, you will experience a wildlife viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. In absolute stillness and silence you drift above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara. It is such a unique experience.
