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

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
