      Little Governors' Camp

      Incredible Game Viewing by Day. Laterns and Candlelight by Night.

      In 1976 Little Governors’ Camp, situated on the banks of the Mara River, was built around a small watering hole that teems with birds and wildlife. The camp is reached by boat and the exquisite, romantic setting has a serenity all of its own. The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivalled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them. The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event. While the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa. Intimate in character, there are just 17 tents tucked away among the trees. Each has an en-suite bathroom, hot running water, even bidets. In keeping with safari tradition lighting is by gas and kerosene lanterns, or by candlelight. From every verandah the view changes constantly as giraffe, elephants, buffalo, hippos and warthogs all come to drink or graze. Getting here is an adventure in itself. As dusk falls, the flickering lights in the forest make the camp a peaceful and atmospheric place. Meals are our usual superlative standards, served, as is our style, outdoors during the day and in our candle lit dining tent by night. Come evening, it’s time for chilled drinks and tall tales around the blazing campfire. Then finally a delicious dinner and a hot-water bottle to keep you warm in bed. Three game-viewing excursions per day, early and mid morning as well as the afternoon with experienced driver guides in the Masai Mara Game Reserve are included in the accommodation cost. Balloon safaris, guided walks in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, cultural visits to a nearby Masai Village, and excursions to Lake Victoria can be arranged at an extra cost.
