We went away for the weekend to the Il Moran Governors Camp. It is a tented camp in the Masai Mara. The flight over is very short, so not issues there. A game vehicle collects you at the airstrip, and on the short ride to the tented camp, we saw many game already. The camp is setout in a very intimate setting (only 10 tents, I think), it is really a lovely experience. The Luxury Tent, has a full bathroom, Bedroom, with desk and lounge chair, we were overlooking a hippo watering hole. The resort really does make you feel welcome. They assign a butler, askari and game ranger to you for your stay. The Room is very comfortable with loads of space, there is water supplied in the rooms. At night it was especially nice to come back from dinner to get into bed with a lovely hot water bottle that has warmed your bed. The resort does a wake up call in the morning for the game drive, and supply tea coffee or hot chocolate (even a snack), if you request it. Our butler was wonderful, making sure everything was just right. We opted not to have breakfast in the resort, but rather a picnic breakfast out on the game drive, this is really a treat. The resort packs everything necessary for the breakfast in the bush. If you opt not to have the breakfast in the bush, you may request snacks in your refreshment basket for your game drive. The food is good and the wait staff are very attentive, and ready to serve. The resort is an all inclusive resort, we did not lack anything during our short stay. If you have dietary requirements I would defenitely let the resort know beforehand, as the selection at lunch and dinner is limited. Simon our game ranger is simply wonderful, as he made sure we saw everything that we were asking about. Food is not allowed in the tents, this is to avoid the baboons ransaking the place. We would defenitely return to Il Moran, we really enjoyed our selves.
