These guys are not kidding. Animals do come to the camp both during the day and at night. Beautiful location and river crossing to the camp. The Big 5 were a stone throw away from the camp. Chef made a good variety of indulging dishes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a forest in the heart of the Masai Mara, Little Governors' is intimate in character. The luxury en-suite tents are tucked around a large water-hole clearing that teems with life. Beyond, lie the grasslands of the Masai Mara and the deep blue Olololo Ridge Escarpment. Arriving in Camp is an adventure, leaving your vehicle behind you cross the Mara River by boat and are escorted on foot through the forest to the camp. ... more   less
