I stayed here in March with my sister and her husband, we were met on the airstrip by Enos who was our Driver for the duration of our stay. We were met by Nikolas and other members of staff when we arrived on camp and were informed that we were the only 4 people staying that week, thought this could... More

Where do I start?! After a few days at Governors Loldia House and an amazing safari at Lake Nakuru I wondered whether the Mara could top those experiences. But I was completely blown away by our stay at Il Moran. After a beautiful flight from Lake Naivasha we met Duncan, our driver for the 4 days. Our short drive to... More

I stayed at Il Moran for a week at the end of February. Arriving at Nairobi on the overnight Kenya Airways flight from Heathrow I was met by a Governors Camp escort for the 30-minute drive to Wilson Airport for the 45-minute flight down to the Mara. This was my fourth visit to Governors Camps (my previous review on 7... More

What a wonderful experience, to stay in such luxury tents, with king size bed that was comfortable too!. Large porch with hammock and table and chairs, great for watching the Hippos and other animals who come to the river. Lovely setting for dining, great service, fabulous meals and lovely friendly staff. The game drives were fabulous, the Hot Air Balloon... More

This was our second stay at Il Moran Camp and we have already discussed when we will return. Salim picked us up at the airport, took us to our hotel in Karen for the night, to the Elephant Orphanages and for lunch before taking us to Wilson Airport. As Governor's has their own planes, the flight is a brief 45... More

We spent a week at Il Moran in early June, and I am still walking on air from this trip. What a beautiful place in every sense -- the animals, the landscapes, the camp itself, and the wonderful people there. I can't imagine being more comfortable, or in better hands, than at Il Moran. The service is warm and personal... More

Patrick the manager seemed to pull out all the stops to make our wedding the most beautiful and memorable experience. He organised that our ceremony should be by the river, with a Masai escort, lovely wedding cake and private dinner for two afterwards. Also a private evening dinner on our tent porch. I must also mention the pilot for Governors... More

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
