Il Moran was a perfect lodge setting and the Masai Mara was amazing giving you the full game experience right from your door. The accommodation was fantastic and very spacious. Staff were very attentive and always there to ensure your needs and overall safety were met. It is not every morning when you wake up to find that elephants had... More

This is a truly excellent camp, as good as tented camps get (just FYI, still nothing like the top luxury lodges in South Africa though). Head and shoulders above its two sister camps (Main Governors' and Little Governors'). Tents are huge, charming and spotless. Electricity is available for the majority of the day. Bathrooms are en-suite with great facilities and... More

We spent two nights each at Governor's Il Moran, Mbalageti Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, Manyara Tree Lodge and Tortilis Amboseli. Il Moran was the best of these highly rated tent camps. We had the best game viewing, the best food, and at least as good service. The game viewing began out the back of our luxury tent, with hippos in... More

From start to finish this was a total surprise. Our light aircraft met at the landing strip in the middle of nowhere by Juma in a Landrover who became our driver for our entire stay even taking us back to the airstrip and waving goodbye on our last day. The camp is extraordinary with huge tents and seperate bathrooms with... More

Everything about Governor's was perfect. It is the most luxurious of camps with tents having a wonderfully comfortable bed, hot shower, large bath and space to just relax in between game drives. All of the tents overlook the Mara River and that in itself is enough to pass the time away, watching the hippos wallow, spotting crocs or being amused... More

We stayed at Il Moran Camp for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. I think its safe to say I will never experience anything as special as this in my life again. From the sheer luxury of the accomodation, the great food, the friendly atmosphere and the daily adventures of the game drives it was all just truly amazing.... More

You have to be looking for this type of luxury and the unexpected upgrade took us by surprise and left us a little bamboozled as to why you would need such luxury whilst on Safari! However one luch time spent in the roll top bath in our giant tent convinced me that you could definitely get used to it. The... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon and loved the place. We have stayed in hotels all over the world and have to say that the quality of food and service in Kenya, in general is some of the best we have received anywhere, Governors Il Moran was no different. The camp is in amongst the... More
