Our trip started at Loldia House - where Heather and her staff thoroughly looked after us - so Il Moran was going to have a hard act to follow! Patrick and his team at Il Moran did not disappoint.
The tented accommodation caters for all your needs and is probably larger than some hotel rooms these days. Hippo can be seen and heard from the tented accommodation. Food was superb but of course you are here principally here to see the game and Enos, our guide, did not disappoint though Rhino proved quite elusive until the penultimate day when he found a solitary white Rhino. This could soon be one of the last Rhino in the Mara which as a result of poaching. We weren't expecting to see any migration but found that animals that had crossed back into Tanzania were returning to the green grass of the Mara due to the "burning" of grass in Tanzania. So we were fortunate to witness our own mini migration. For a luxurious, private stay in the Mara it is the perfect location. We can also highly recommend Mfangango Island camp where we finished our vacation. We were again well looked after by James and his team. With birdlife abounding, fish eagles, weaver birds fire finches the list could go on and good fishing in Lake Victoria it was a perfect way to unwind after the Mara.
