Stay at Little Governors' Camp, Masai Mara National Reserve
Little Governors' has a superb position above a small swamp where, during the day, you often see animals coming to graze and drink. Overall it is one of our favorite camps in the Mara.
Little Governors' Camp, Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Little Governors' Camp has 17 tents situated in a wide curve around a small marsh. The marsh acts as a magnet for game in the dry season and sitting in camp you can often see buffalo grazing or elephant coming to drink. Beyond the marsh the plains stretch towards the escarpment.
Each tent is comfortable and has a covered outdoor veranda with two safari chairs and small table. Inside, simple furnishings include twin beds, a wardrobe rack, a desk / dressing table and safari chairs. The en suite bathrooms have hot showers and wc. Screened windows let in light and air during the day and are covered at night (although if you want the blinds left up to enjoy the stars and breeze it is possible).
At the corner of the lagoon is an open sided dining room, bar and cluster of tall trees under which many meals are served. At night there is no electricity and camp is lit only by lanterns and candles. The atmosphere is friendly and guests often sit around the large campfire recounting the day's events.
With no fences guests are escorted to their tents at night where the calls of the wild can often be heard.
