Coolest accommodation at Little Governors Camp in Masai mara National park Kenya, comprises just 17 tents tucked around a large watering-hole alive with animal and bird life.
Getting to the camp is an adventure in itself, as guests first have to cross the Mara River by boat, then walk a short distance, escorted by armed guards, through the forest.
All the tents are comfortable and tasteful. Each has en-suite bathroom, hot-water, even bidets.
In keeping with safari tradition lighting is by gas and kerosene lantern or candlelight. As dusk falls the flickering lights in the forest make the camp a uniquely peaceful and atmospheric place.
Meals are of a high standard, served outdoors during the day or inside by candlelit dining tent. In the evening there are chilled drinks and tall tales around the blazing campfire.
Then, finally, a delicious dinner and a hot-watered bottle to keep guests warm in bed.
