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.

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. The food was very good. The setting is magnificent. I can't say enough good things about the Governors Group of camps - I've now stayed in three and... More

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

We . spent 4 nights here in October of 2014. It was our first trip safari. Here is what you need to know, but overall it's spectacular and there were a few things I wish I'd known before I went. 1) Camp - is luxury at it's finest. There are only 10 HUGE tents, that are not very close together... More
