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

Il moran was recommended by a family member and I could not praise this camp enough. My wife and I just came back from a 4day masai trip. Our game drives were amazing and we saw every big animal one would want to. Baby lions, male lion, black rhino, baby elephants, lion having breakfast after a night kill (circle of... More

We had the most amazing time...3 nights in October were absolutely perfect. Our driver Simon was incredible and made sure we saw all we could. Overall, the staff was excellent, some of the friendliest service we've ever had. This place is not to be missed!

Stayed at Il Moran as part of our honeymoon in July and the whole experience was superb. Can't fault the 'tents' with their space, hammocks, ambiance, views and the overall level of service. The food was also a positive as we enjoyed just about everything we had and we are foodies. Of course the best part about the whole trip... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the camp for three nights in September - we had never been on a safari before and were totally wowed. The tents are beautiful and face out onto the Mara river - listening to the hippos at night was magical. The staff and service were amazing, first class! I am a vegetarian and I... More

We enjoyed stays at three Governor’s Lodges in Kenya and are very happy to review all of them individually, but at the outset would like to compliment the owners on three very different settings and styles. All shared in common the wonderful staff, magnificent settings, and excellent food. Looking out from out “tent” we could see amongst other wildlife, a... More

We stayed in September for the first part of our honeymoon. I expected to have a great once in a lifetime experience but i have now caught the bug and can't wait to return for our next safari and hope to stay at Il Moran again. We had a warm welcome on our arrival after a long trip and were... More

We stayed at Il Moran for 4 nights from September 24th to 28th 2013. It's an incredibly good venue and exceeded all of our already high expectations. The customer service is outstanding and the food quality and menu choice would rival many of a London restaurant. Patrick is a great host and Caleb and Collins looked after us so well.... More

Arrived after a long flight to Nairobi from London.Short flight from Wilson airport to Masai Mara. We were met at the airstrip by Patrick,the manager of Il Moran who after introductions remebered our names for the rest of the stay. The staff could not have been more helpful.Food was great and very plentiful. The setting is amazing on the curve... More
