Our group ranged from the youngest at 21 yo through to the oldest at 85 years old and quite frail with it. We deliberately chose... More

This was our third trip to the Mara but our first to Il Moran. We travelled at the end of the rainy season which is usually quiet but did not stop us from having an unforgettable visit to the Mara and Il Moran. The camp itself is very luxurious and the tents have everything you need (including a Victorian bath... More

We recently returned from Governors Il Moran Camp after an amazing four night stay as part of a safari / beach holiday. Everything about the safari was fantastic. The great location of the camp on the Mara River meant we were able to see animals from our tent. We really enjoyed the luxuries that this camp offers, especially because we... More

Game viewing was good, particularly the river crossing by thousands of zebras and our guide Maina was great. We also did the balloon tour, which is very expensive, but a nice experience to see the sun rising on the bush. The tents are big with a nice view on the Mara river, and the noises of the resident hippos are... More

Me and my husband stayed at Il Moran for our 25th Wedding anniversary it was absolutely amazing as were all the staff. On arrival we were greeted with a cocktail and then shown to our tent which was larger then most five star hotels and respectfully decorated, we even had a rolled top bath. We were woken in the morning... More
