If you only go on safari once in your lifetime it has to be to Il Moran Camp on the Masai Mara. The food and service are brilliant. The tents are great. You will get animals coming into the camp and you'll see them when you are sitting having lunch. Evening meals are taken by a campfire and it is... More

The Il Moran Governors' Camp is outstanding. The service during our stay in August was excellent - a special thanks to Julius and Richard - and the location of course is superb, being in the heart of the Mara Triangle. The camp is situated on the banks of the Mara river, and you drift off to sleep each night with... More

We stayed at Ilmoran for our honeymoon and are so glad that we did. The whole experience was perfect in every way and I honestly can't think of anything that could've been done better. We were met at the airstrip by our driver (for those who, like me, don't like flying, the flight is a bit scary) and taken straight... More

This is a top-notch resort in a fantastic location. Outstanding game drives within five minutes, but who needs that with the game in the camp? You dine 15 feet above hippos and crocs. And you sleep with the animals -- one night I looked out the front of the tent and saw no more than 10 feet away to very... More

We had an unforgettable stay at Il Moran. It was the perfect way to start our honeymoon! Accommodations were excellent. This is not a typical "tent"! Staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. They woke us up in the morning with hot tea and coffee and took great care of us throughout the day. Food was delicious and plentiful. The wait... More

My wife and I celebrated part of our honeymoon here, what an amazing place! The manager (whose name I forgot, Dereck I think, but h e is from Zimbabwe) runs a tight ship and does a fanstastic job in making his guest feel welcome while attending to their needs. Manager made it a point to talk with all guests during... More

Me and my wife spent 4 nights at IL Moran and our whole experience has been amazing. The staff were courteous, caring and responded to our every request with a smile on their face. Our guide Simon possessed wealth of knowledge and helped us to see African wildlife at its very best in a professional and efficient manner. Thanks to... More

Stayed at Il Moran for 4 nights as part of our kenyan wedding/honeymoon, and this place simply blew us away with everything it had to offer. Right from our luxurious tent complete with huge bath and constant hot water, one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, the outdoor decking complete with hammock with views over the adjacent...

We stayed three nights in Il Moran towards the end of a three weeks Tanzania and Kenya trip. Il Moran was definetily our favorite camp. The tents are spacious, and well appointed, including a big bathtub, which was really a nice change from the bucket showers we had in several of the mobile camps. Excellent food, the best we had...

Il Moran is truly amazing! We spent 3 nights and 4 days here at the start of our honeymoon in Kenya. The flight in was exciting and really set the scene of what was about to come in the Mara. We were greeted at the airstrip by our guide Ngei who was our guide for the four days. We were... More
