MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
Set in the heart of Africa’s Great Plains, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 sq. kilometers of unspoilt wilderness. It offers the best game and bird-viewing not only in Kenya, but anywhere in Africa. The views across the rolling golden grasslands studded with acacia trees, rivers and forests are dazzling, the sense of space overwhelming.
Throughout the year the Masai Mara is a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of colour and life.
Most stunning of all are the months between July and October, when the savannah teems with animals during the Great Wildebeest Migration.
Millions of wildebeest gather in the Masai Mara in one of the natural wonders of the world. Staying in one of the Governors’ Camp propertiesputs you right in the heart of the action, closer than anyone else to its incredible sights and sounds.Governors’ Camp location, tradition and history, exclusive style, luxury and setting standard in Africa best camps in brief.
Little Governors’ is intimate in character, with just 17 luxury en-suite tents tucked around a large watering hole that teems with both birds and wildlife. The camp is approached by a boat ride across the Mara River, then an escorted walk through the riverine forest. Vehicles are left on the far river bank, and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed.
The guest tents at Little Governors’ have recently been renovated and now have great wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the watering hole at the camp.
All Governors’ properties are unfenced, and at Little Governors’ there is a resident family of warthogs that wander freely through the camp. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunch time.
