From the moment you arrive at the Il Moran camp Patrick and his team make you feel totally at home, nothing is too much trouble. I visited with two teenagers and husband and our tented accommodation was very tasteful and comfortable. The food was just amazing and the camp which sits alongside the Mara river was incredible. We sat and... More

I cannot imagine a better place to stay during the migration. Il Moran is wonderfully intimate, yet perfectly situated. It is right on the bank of the river, with many hippos always visible from your tent. Best of all, Il Moran is located very close to several large prides of lions, including nearly all ones featured on Big Cat Diaries.... More

This was our first visit to Kenya, the Masai Mara and Governors Il Moran. The flight into the Mara from Nairobi Wilson was a great (if a little bumpy!) way to start our stay, giving a real sense of arrival on touchdown at the local airstrip. We were met at the airstrip by our guide Maina who took us back... More

We have just had the most wonderful 5 days in the hands of the team at Il Moran. Having arrived with high expectations (they have the reputation of being the best in the Mara), we were not disappointed, in fact every expectation was exceeded. From the warm welcoming smile of Maina at the "airport", past the saluting guard at the... More
