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

We stayed at Il Moran for the second time for 4 nights in August 2014, returning to be there during the Great Migration. We fell in love with the camp and the people the first time we visited in July 2012 and planned to return for our 30th anniversary this year. I had emailed and asked that we get our... More

Governors Il Moran is an intimate, luxury tented camp along the Mara River in the Masai Mara, Kenya. The grounds are rustic and private and the spacious, well appointed tents have beautiful views of the river filled with hippos. The tents have lovely bathrooms and hand carved beds. Our wakeup call was a pot of French pressed coffee and cookies... More

Il Moran is located in the middle of the most fantastic wildlife imaginable. A river runs through the camp which is filled with hippos and all kind of wildlife attracted by the water. The service and accommodations were superb. Patrick the camp manager and Jackson, our personal butler made sure that we were being well taken care off. Il Moran... More

We stayed at the Governors’ Il Moran camp for 5 nights in September 2014; this was our first time in Africa and on Safari. Our guide (John) met us from the plane and took us immediately on our first game drive – what an introduction. On arrival in camp we were greeted by the Il Moran team. The accommodation was... More

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
