Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Little Governors Camp is well-managed, friendly and comfortable, with decent food and a good location. It is smaller than Governors Main Camp but it's still not small and the tents are quite close together so be prepared to hear your neighbours. For more privacy, consider Governor's Il Moran camp.
