Elephants visiting Little Governors' Camp in the Masai Mara Kenya

Video #1 of 2

This great footage shows a family of Elephants coming right into Little Governors' Camp in Kenya. Little Governors' Camp is visited by elephant on a regular basis.


The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivaled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From every veranda the view changes constantly as giraffe, elephant, buffalo, hippo and warthog all come to drink or graze.

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 properties puts you right in the heart of the action, closer than anyone else to its incredible sights and sounds.

After the rains when the first flush of grass turns the Masai Mara's golden savannah green, the most mesmerising wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place here: The Great Wildebeest Migration. Between the months of July and October one and a half million wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of zebra and gazelles make the long and dangerous trek from drier lands in Tanzania, northwards to this corner of Kenya.

Just outside the Masai Mara National Reserve is a traditional Masai community called Mara Rianda. There is a traditional Masai homestead or Manyatta which consists of 48 traditional houses surrounding a cattle enclosure. We encourage clients to visit this manyatta if they are interested in Masai culture and would like to experience a way of life unchanged for centuries.
