Getting to the intimate and secluded Little Governors Camp is an adventure in itself. You first have to cross the Mara River by boat, then walk a short distance beneath the canopy of indigenous forest trees. The camp has just 17 tents tucked away around a large watering hole where animals and birdlife abound. From every verandah, the view changes constantly as different animals come to drink or graze. Beyond, the changing colors of the Olololo Ridge melt into the vast African sky. All tents are comfortable, tastefully furnished, and lit with gas and kerosene lanterns or candles providing the old safari feel. Dinner is served in a communal setting, allowing for ‘the good-natured rivalry of who saw what’. As dusk falls, the flickering lights in the forest coupled with the Camp’s exquisite and romantic setting cast a spell over all who visit.
