We'd never done a safari, so we had no idea what to expect. The tent was so comfortable, it was all there, just like a five star hotel room. It took a while to get accustomed to the animal sounds around you at night. We had a hippo munching grass outside our tent and an elephant wandered through the camp... More

Small campsite, great tented camp within the park with some great view of wildlife while dining or simply from outside your tent. Stayed for two nights, nice view from the room, great food including champagne on the game drives, great driver guide. Great ballooning experience as well. All in all, a great way to enjoy the bush in style.

This was our 4th trip in 2 years and we have already booked for next year. Top class location, management, hospitality, knowledge and, above all professionalism. The quality of this camp is superb in every way. Our guide, Simon, has taught us, tolerated our ignorance, and increased our love for this place more than we can say. Big 5? We... More

Loved this camp, the tent's interior so luxurious, amazing set up and layout. The massage given by the local masseuse Rita was the best ever. The game rides were out of this world and our guide Enos was excellent, very professional, bubbly and full of life. He made us laugh so much. The manager Patrick was obliging and very helpful....

We had three nights here and it was all amazing - the food was great, the tents were luxurious, and you're really close to the wildlife in the camp. There were banded mongoose wandering past our table at dinner and in the night, you can hear the hippos (at least we think they were hippos!). The game drives were all... More

I was not sure when our trip included three nights in luxurious tents. Not much of a camper anymore. These tents really are luxurious. Even have your own private bathroom with shower and yes hot water. At night you could hear the hippos close by. The game drives were the best of the entire trip. Yep saw the big five... More

Our trip started at Loldia House - where Heather and her staff thoroughly looked after us - so Il Moran was going to have a hard act to follow! Patrick and his team at Il Moran did not disappoint. The tented accommodation caters for all your needs and is probably larger than some hotel rooms these days. Hippo can be... More

Jambo! We stayed in Little Governors first & then spent our last 3 nights in Il Moran. The tents are bigger much more luxurious with a roll top bath! I must say the hammock is a very nice extra & the tents are further apart so it feels more private than Little Governors. The location is different, spectacular views being... More
