Little Governors' Camp Highlights

Little Governors' Camp was built in 1976 around a small waterhole that teems with wildlife and birds. It is set on the Musiara Marshlands of the Masai Mara in Kenya, which are watered by the Mara River. The plains are dotted with acacia trees and fringed by the Siria Escarpment. Hardly surprising that Little Governors' Camp was the setting for the filming of Out of Africa. Getting to the camp is an adventure as you first cross the Mara River by boat, then a short walk escorted by armed guides through the forest.

Little Governors' Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Little Governors' Camp is located on the Mara River, the location of some of the most dramatic scenes during the annual wildebeest migration. It is here that crocodiles wait for the wildebeest and zebra to cross the river. The migration passes through this part of the Masai Mara between July and September. The entire area of the park is nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley. The Masai Mara consists of open savannah, rolling grasslands and undulating hills. The Masai Mara boasts astonishing amount of game. Unfenced, the Mara borders the Ngama Hills in the east and the Olooloo or Siria Escarpment in the west. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. The famous black-maned Mara lions are possibly the stars of the Mara show. In earlier times the Masai were renowned lion killers and it is said that if lions scent approaching Masai on the breeze they move swiftly in the opposite direction. Cheetah, elephant, kongoni, topi, Thompson's gazelle, waterbuck, hyena and the primates can also be found roaming the Masai Mara. Each year the Masai Mara in Kenya hosts the world's greatest natural spectacle, the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti. From July to October, the promise of rain and fresh grass on in the Mara attracts more than 1.3 million wildebeest together in a single massive herd. At the Mara River they mass together on the banks before plunging forward through the raging waters, fighting against the currents and waiting crocodiles.
