Masai Mara - Little Governors Camp
Early in October is a lovely time of the year to visit the Mara. The massed ranks of wildebeest and zebra are usually still very much in evidence as they begin their journey south again to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. By now the grasses have withered and been cropped short by the hungry herds. As the animals head for the Mara River there is always a chance that we might witness a river crossing at one of the animals’ favourite crossing sites. Naturally every visitor wants to see the Mara’s fabled big cats and with the plains and the thickets stripped of much of their cover the predators are more visible than ever.Sign Up & Register Now

World’s Leading Hosts
The chance to spend time with some of the worlds top wildlife photographers and naturalist guides. Jonathan has spent nearly 40 years in Kenya, while Angie was born in Africa and is also an internationally renowned award-winning wildlife photographer. We are hoping that Angie will be able to join us in camp during this safari. Warren Samuels was born in Kenya and is one of the worlds leading wildlife cameramen. You could not be in better company. A popular feature of our safaris are Presentations of our photographic images and TV shows to help inspire and inform your time with us. And as an added bonus we will be joined for this safari by one of the world’s leading wildlife artists – normally the inimitable Jonathan Truss - who as Artist in Residence will offer tutorials to inspire the artist in all of us. We are delighted to co-host this annual event with one of the UK’s leading Event Management companies.
We endeavor to set out each morning before sunrise to make the most of the game viewing and photographic opportunities. But rest assured that even if photography is not your thing we will still ensure you enjoy a safari to remember. We know the Mara and its wildlife intimately and keep in close contact with other naturalist guides throughout the year to enable us to take full advantage of the best sightings. Though we are renowned for our work with the Mara’s big cats we also love to explore the photographic possibilities offered by the 500 species of birds that are found here and to share our love of this Photographer’s Paradise with our guests. Guests are encouraged to bring their laptops so that we can review and critique their work.
To make your safari experience as intimate as possible we endeavour to have exclusive occupancy of the camps or lodges we use in the Mara. This helps to ensure you enjoy quality time with your hosts, and for us to be as flexible as possible with the daily itinerary to take full advantage of whatever wildlife and photographic highlights are on offer. We often take a picnic breakfast with us on our morning game drives and return to camp for lunch. But anything is possible!
"Jonathan & Angela are quite simply two of the best people you could wish to work with. Their talent as photographers is world class - both are highly decorated award winners. I've been lucky enough to work with both of them now on many projects, and on any production, small or large, their input and spirit is invaluable, I truly couldn't recommend them highly enough."
