Governors' Il Moran Camp

A premiere camp in the Masai Mara

Small and intimate, Governor's Il Moran Camp is ideal for luxury honeymoons and couples looking for an extra-special safari experience.

Spacious tents nestle beneath the shade of ancient trees and exude rustic elegance with luxurious touches such as Victorian-style rolltop baths and carved olive wood beds. During the daytime, enjoy meals in the dappled sunshine on the banks of the Mara River; in the evening, dinner is served by candlelight in the dining tent or al fresco under the stars.

You'll feel truly immersed in nature, as you witness elephant and giraffe passing the camp or hear the hippos at night – in fact, the deluxe camp and prime location are so exceptional that this is where the BBC wildlife documentaries Big Cat Diary and Planet Earth Live were filmed.

Tents are huge and comfortable.n most of all luxurious Ambience like no other. Sounds of birds and animals tells you that you have arrived in africa in its purest sense. Attention to detail by the mgmt (Trix) and all the staff is unbelievable. Very experience game drivers who go out on a limb to make sure you get the right angle for photography. Food and drinks are of very good quality and taste . Variety is wide to satisfy all taste n preferences . Lastly , since the camp has limited capacity its intimate and more private . A definite choice for Masai Mara

I didn't think I'd like a Safari but I do now!

Dinas Powys, United Kingdom

After Flying into Nairobi, we were transferred to Wilson airport by taxi, which takes around 40 minutes, subject to traffic, The flight from Wilson to the Masai Maara takes around 50 mins, again you may be dropping off guests at other camps. The camp is well arranged and due to it's size you will end up speaking to other guests at the bar. The tents should have no worries for anyone who thinks camping is not for them. Take the balloon ride if you can. As for the Masai Maara, it's incredible, our guide Maina was invaulable, we saw a huge number of animals, including the big 5 and a Wildebeest crossing. Thanks also to Trixie, Philip and Lucas. A special mention to Stephen who escorted us from tent 10 on a regular basis and spent time talking to us about the hippo's. Il Moran is run very well, be prepared for early starts, but it's worth it.
