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...

We arrived to a welcome drink and then a prompt sundowner was brought to our tent because we arrived fairly late in the evening. (We went on a game drive as soon as... More

Having been to Tanzania on honeymoon 5 years ago we wanted to return to Africa for our 5 year anniversary and this holiday was probably even better. Ali was amazingly helpful in giving us lots of options and his opinion on... More

Our stay at Governors Il Moran Camp was nothing short of fabulous. In the intimate setting of Il Moran, our accommodation in a spacious and well appointed tent along side the Mara River gave us every opportunity to experience the hippos in residence there. Perfect weather...75-80 degrees during the day and 55 to 60 at night. All of the staff... More

This trip far exceeded any of our expectations. The attention to detail was second to none. The food outstanding, accommodation although in tents couldn't have been better, positively luxurious. The game drives were amazing and our driver Isaac was so knowledgable, he answered everything we threw at him. We saw all the animals we could have imagined and more, all... More

It's hard to do justice to Il Moran by writing a short review. We stayed here for our honeymoon at the recommendation from friends who had been before. From start to finish it was the most incredible holiday experience. The accommodation is stunning, luxurious and beautiful and it's hard to believe that you're in the middle of the Maasai on...
