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.

Pretty location but I do not recommend staying here

We stayed here during the first week of August, 2018. The level of cleanliness was a concern in our tent cabin, with food service, and with food handling on game drives. Even the vehicle that they used for our games drives was quite dirty. We learned that visitors should not trust the in-room safes either since the room attendee can easily access a key to open the safe. This was our last camp prior to returning to the US. I experienced symptoms of E.Coli on the plane ride home. My doctor ordered lab tests which showed positive results for E.Coli Enteroaggregative. This is a lovely setting however based on our experience, it does not appear that they operate at an appropriate level for US travelers.

Outstanding Camp!!!

San Francisco, California

There are only 10 tents in the camp. The tent is nicer and larger than our home :) Clawfoot tub with double vanity are an added bonus. There are 3 game drives per day but you can opt to combine your first 2 game drives together and eat your breakfast out on the hood of the truck which I highly recommend! If you are a "picky" eater (like my wife) the Chef will personally discuss every meal with you and cater to your every need! The Staff is AMAZING! Governor's Camp is where you want to be for a Safari and if you can upgrade to Il Moran you will have the Safari of a lifetime. There is no need to pack heavy. The camp does your laundry everyday!!! We will be back!
