We had hoped that Governor’s Il Moran, the last of the three camps we visited, would be the best. It was the most luxurious camp, the tents were lovely, and there were real showers and tubs. The personal service was excellent. However, the atmosphere wasn’t as warm as at the other camps. Even though the Manager has been there ten... More

First with the positive – the tents and location are BEAUTIFUL. When inside, its almost hard to believe we are steps away from the Mara River, filled with crocodiles and hippos. Although after a few moments, it was hard not to hear the hippos! As first time safari goers who started in Amboseli we were SO excited to arrive in... More

This safari was our first stop on our honeymoon, and was honestly one of the best things we have ever done. It's hard to believe we were only there for three days as we have so many amazing memories. The journey to the camp was easy and after our greeting we were shown to our tent which was up on... More

We had an amazing 4 night stay at Il Moran. The staff, guides, tents etc all being first rate. The tent was perfect with a comfy king sized bed and a large bathroom. Coffee and freshly baked shortbread cookies delivered every morning as our wake up call. Our first night, 21 elephants decided to wander through the camp along with... More

I literally can not fault this place in any way..... food, room/tent, activities, safari, drivers, staff and general feel of the place were all 10/10 ... I would recommend ll'Moran to anyone .... it's worth the money and if i had more would go back in a flash!

Il Moran was every thing you could dream of and more. The setting is stunning on the banks of the river with the Hippos for company. Spacious Tents (with comfy beds), great food and friendly helpful staff. The drive back from the airstrip alone had our jaws dropping in amazement at the abundance of wildlife. My son and I did...

The large tent with a large bathroom and all the amenities was fabulous. We were on the Mara River, looking down on the Hippopotamus and alligators. The food and drinks were great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. 'John' our safari guide was wonderful, there wasn't an animal that we didn't get the opportunity to view and photograph,...

I don't think I can put into words just how amazing Governors Il Moran actually is, but I'm going to try! When my hubby and I first started to plan our twin-centre honeymoon we were overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of camps available within the Masai Mara. However with the help of several travel brochures and plenty of emails back... More

We simply can't fault Il Moran camp on any level and would have no hesitation recommending it to our friends and family. The staff gave us a great welcome and the accommodation, food and drinks were all top notch. Our driver Simon was knowledgeable, fun and made every effort to show us more than we ever imagined we would see.... More

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
