2 days at Il Moran, a property of Governors. The driver guide, Maina (sp?) is excellent, the camp is very small and intimate, only 10 very beautiful and fully equipped with all modern conveniences tents. Very nice furnishings made of polished old, gnarled wood, very rustic and very fitting. The place looks and feels happy. The only possible issue might... More

Going out as a group of 6 - myself, my friend, my parents and my sister and her fiancée - we were off out to see my sister and her fiancée get married on the camp. We arrived and were looked after so brilliantly. The staff were so happy to help at every possible moment, the tent was AMAZING, beautiful... More

Certainly the best way to see so many animals including predators in action by having your own car & guide up to 12 hours a day. The family of hippos nearby added to the atmosphere. The chef went out of his way to cook for my difficult vegetarian husband who also ate no eggs,dairy,wheat,grains. The staff were very friendly &... More

We have been to the Masai Mara three times although this was our first visit to Il Moran. Patrick, Nicholas and the team worked tirelessly to make all of their guests feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. Simon the Head Chef was particularly attentive towards my gluten free meal needs. He... More

We stayed at Il Moran in July as the first week of our honeymoon - and what a week it was!!! We could not have asked for anything more. The camp itself is beautiful and the staff fantastic. Our driver Enos was brilliant and we had a great week with him. He really went out of his way to make... More

Il Moran Camp is the most amazing place to stay while on Safari. The tents are so luxurios and are situated on the Masi river which is a fantastic location. Our first day of arrival we were greeted to the most amazing food sitting outside watching the hippos graze in the river beside it. Talk about at one with Nature,it... More

The tents and furnishings are more than adequate, but light in the tent at night is very poor especially in the bathroom. There is wireless in the bar, but the light at night is so poor you cannot see your keyboard. They will let you use the managers little office, but that is really not a great solution. The chef...
