An intimate and romantic Masai Mara camp
Luxury tents tucked around a large watering hole teeming with wildlife.
Rebecca wrote this description after recently visiting and taking a Hot Air Balloon safari.
Little Governors (one of several award-winning properties in the Governors' portfolio) is intimate in character with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole that teems with both bird and wildlife. The camp is approached by a boat ride across the Mara River, followed by an escorted walk through the forest. Vehicles are left on the far riverbank, and the camp is quiet and undisturbed. This adds an adventurous element and makes your arrival really exciting.
Accommodation is in safari tents under canvas, each with a private veranda. The tents have an en-suite bathroom and hot water. In keeping with safari tradition, lighting is by gas and kerosene lantern or candlelight creating a beautiful romantic atmosphere. It's quiet, without feeling isolated, perfect for visitors who want a real safari experience, but with the comfort afforded by a medium-sized property.
Game drives at Little Governors are in custom built 4 wheel-drive vehicles, great for wildlife photography. Experienced guides take you out twice a day (morning and afternoon) on a game drive into the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve and surrounding areas. You can also experience game walks, local cultural visits to a nearby Masai village (manyatta) and day visits to Lake Victoria. Governors Hot Air Balloon safaris launch site is on the camp grounds and flights are followed by a champagne bush breakfast and game drive back to the camp is something you'll never forget. The icing on the cake for me, was seeing wildlife from the air, flying above the birds, and viewing Black Rhino and about 50 elephants on the game drive back to camp.
