Amaizing amaizing experience. They offer ballon safaris. Best thing is the animals come to you ( they are harmless). The camp is inside the camp. Ireally enjoyed my visit here.I would definetly recommend anyone to visit this place especially for honeymoon
Honeymoon Safari - Amazing Experience
Can't wait to go back. The camp is peaceful, private and quaint while providing all the amenities that would be expected while "glamping" plus more. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, the service is so good you forget you're outside in the middle of a reservation. The tour guides really know their stuff, and are more than willing to shape their tours on which animals you'd like to see. I wish I could give more than a 5* review.
Magical camp in magical place - just book
Just returned from amazing 3 day trip. Fly Governors Air from Nairobi, Wilson as totally efficient and handy for the camp. Camp beautiful and full of wildlife very close. Elephants waiting at our lovely tent as we arrived. Then the sounds of Hippo as we slept. Special thank you for our safari guide - Joseph for being so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and supportive. He even stopped on route to collect garbage in the park which shows his love and pride of his job (management please give feedback). We saw the Great Migration, Cheetahs, Leopard and loads of lions. Anyone looking to book don’t hesitate as I can’t see how this can be beaten.
I bring guests here---my Favorite Place in Mara
Little Governors with Family –just now reviewing--from late January. Due to extended rainy season---there were challenges but staff overcame. We did Flying Package—only way to go. Flight was about 1 hour—did have one other stop. I was taking my grandson and his wife---he has been here before --but her first time. We arrived in Airstrip side-- but due to rains roads were really bad. We did make it to river and were able to cross the flat-bottom boat that is pulled by a rope. Note stairs are steep (40+ I think) and not for someone who can’t do stairs or really bad knees. Once you arrive you are taking to river to cross or for short game drive. We opted to go to camp—Mid morning. Tents are like 17-- set around a marsh area—resident hippos. There is the marsh in front of you –then the plains beyond with all kind of animals. (Bring binoculars). One can sit on porch of your tent and see lots of animals. There is the usual welcome with juice and info and signing disclaimers, etc. Once done you are taking to your tent for relaxing then lunch under trees. This is not a camp with swimming pool and lots of tourists—this is more intimate. Note: there is No Electric fence around camp—animals can come into camp and do. There are armed guards at night that accompany you to your tents—hippos do come out at night to graze by tents. There is a family of resident warthogs –but friendly. Next morning we did morning game drive-- on the camp side of river due to river flooding and not able to cross back over. However, we saw great animals--we kept explaining to my granddaughter in-law—this is not always the way it works. Game drives are in 4-wheel Drive Land Cruisers---needed this trip due to rain and mud. Even though we had so much rain---our driver did an excellent job. We saw all the big5—even leopard with kill in tree--not always easy. There were lots of Lions and Elephants (my favorite) along with all gazelle, Impala, cheetah, etc.--not that many zebra and wildebeests due to migration had not occurred. We did see two Rhino which is not a given in this part of Kenya. Nice touches –is that they provide filtered water faucet in tent and excellent turn down service with hot water bottle for cool nights. Food is buffet for breakfast—cook to order eggs or omelets and buffet for lunch then 3 course meal at night with choices for those that are not meat eaters. After evening game drives—at bar-- they cook very nice samosas for snacks—and have full bar open. Be careful you don’t get full on snacks. They do have free Wi-Fi—and cell towers are there. Staff members are excellent and will cater to your every need. Camp Manager –Nicholas does wonderful job--My Favorite place.
Little Governors Camp was perfect for honeymoon. We got the end tent and managed to see giraffes, zebra and elephants in camp as well as seeing buffalo, hippos and lots of birds around the watering hole! We had 3 safari drives per day and our driver Kerore was AMAZING at spotting wildlife - we ticked off all the Big 5 as well as many more animals and a couple of cheetah hunts - it was beyond what we’d expected. The facilities at camp are amazing, we felt comfortable and well looked after at all time’s. It was definitely glamping rather than camping! The food was always of a good standard, we especially loved the BBQ! The hot air balloon ride was so special - the views of the Mara river were incredible, topped only by the boat ride to camp :) I’ll never forget my nerves on the little plane ride there, quickly followed by hopping straight into a jeep on a safari drive just minutes from landing (keep your sun cream handy!) - amazing, I couldn’t recommend the place more. Worth every penny and I so hope to be back!
