Little Governors Camp

Getting here is an adventure in itself, you first have to cross the Mara River by boat, then walk a short distance, escorted by armed guards, through the forest. Meals are of the usual superlative standards, served, as in true Governors’ style, outdoors during the day or in our candlelit dining tent.

All tastes or needs can be catered for, just let the camp know in advance. Come the 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. Hot Air Ballooning is with professional balloon pilots and offered daily, early morning in the Masai Mara Game Reserve followed by a champagne bush breakfast and game drive back to the camp (separate cost).
