We had the pleasure of staying at Il Moran in March, and what a wonderful experience we had. Although we were the only four in the camp at the time the staff were amazing and we never felt alone,in fact they treated us like royalty.Jackson who looked after our tents was superb keeping them immaculate and made sure we had...

My wife and I, her octogenarian parents and our son spent three nights at Governers' Il Moran Camp in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Late March. Il Moran was strongly recommended by our agent, Southern Cross Safaris, and they were absolutely right. We travelled from Nairobi by plane in the Governers' own aircraft and that was very smooth, safe... More

We had a great safari at Governors Camp (our 4 th trip). Each time we have booked with Julius of JTSafaris. Excellent service and we are delighted to recommend him. He will not let you down and we look forward to using him again for our trip to Governors

Thank you again to Patrick and his wonderful team at Il Moran for another unforgettable visit. We felt and were treated like old friends and can't believe how quickly our time went. A super big thank you to Simon who once again pulled out all the stops to ensure that every game drive was the best it could be. Having... More

My wife and I recently stayed for 2 nights at Governors il Moran Camp (after spending 3 nights at Little Governors) - I have to say that the experience was fantastic - the 'tent' is most definitely luxury accommodation. The food was most excellent and the friendly staff welcomed us and took special care of us. The daily safaris were... More

Like its name suggested Governors Il Moran (undefeated warrior) exceeded expectation in every sense of the word…there was nothing that could have been done to make our stay any more perfect. We were the only guests for four days, had the park, the vehicle and the services of Simon (our guide) to our entire selves. It could not have happened... More

Fantastic visit. Saw Black Rhino on the first day and had a pretty magical experience seeing the rest of the big five. Food great, accommodation perfect in tents that are anything but tents. Very attentive staff and guides. No problem with security or anything else. Amazing that some people are keeping away because of Ebola which is thousands of miles... More

We spent six magical days at Il Moran in late November. We had the most amazing time and were treated like visiting royalty by Patrick and his wonderful team. Their excellent service,unfailing kindness, cheerfulness and attention to detail was outstanding. I can't wait to go back again next year. It was my fourth visit to Governors' (first to Il Moran)...

My last holiday weekend living in Kenya was spent at Il Moran and there could have been no better place. What an unbelievable weekend. The staff are incredible. The tents are beautiful.

Patrick and his band of support staff where great! The drivers ( ours was Miani) are all very good and knowledgeable, the early morning starts whilst a little intrusive into your holiday are a must, having breakfast whilst watching some 50 hippo's have an early bath is magical! The ballon ride is another do not miss opportunity, and whilst slightly... More
