Little Governors’ Camp

Little Governors’ Camp

£200.00 / night

Clear dates



Take a small boat across the Mara River to discover a tranquil camp teeming with wildlife.
If you’re looking for a friendly tented camp that’s intimate in character and sits in one of Africa’s best wildlife viewing spots, this is it. It’s the reason many of the guests here return year after year.

Little Governors’ lies a small boat ride across the river from its sister camps. There’s no vehicle access, with safari jeeps left on the far side of the riverbank, so it remains quiet and undisturbed. In fact the most commotion you’ll witness is if an elephant decides to wander through camp at lunchtime – that’s how close to the action you are here. It’s more than likely that you’ll hear hippos at night, and get up close with the resident family of warthogs. Breakfast and lunch buffets are served al fresco, there’s an open-sided bar tent and restaurant tent for candlelit dinners, and the campfire is lit at sunset.

Tents are set around the large watering hole. The lower numbered tents are tucked away in the forest, while the higher numbers sit further out towards the camp’s far boundary and are popular with honeymooners. As at Governors’ Camp, each tent has a double or twin beds, an en-suite bathroom area, electric lamps, and charge points for cameras and phones, plus a deck that provides the perfect spot for relaxed wildlife viewing.

As of 2017, a large bank of solar panels means that Little Governors’ can run on 100% solar power. All water is now heated by solar water heaters and each tent has its own solar water heater installed.

Kuoni Insider
Little Governors’ has one of the best locations in the Mara and the wildlife viewing here is incredible. In just one day we were lucky enough to take flight on a magical hot-air balloon ride over the vast plains at sunrise, enjoy a wonderful Champagne bush breakfast, spot all of the Big Five, watch a river crossing and see a crocodile kill. I loved getting the little boat back over the river to the camp each day – it feels so secluded and has a wonderful atmosphere, as well as excellent staff and amazing en-suite tents.”
