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.

Another amazing trip

Swansea, United Kingdom

This was our 5th visit to the Mara and the second to Il Moran - recently refurbished. We had a wonderful experience from the warm welcome by Partick and the team to the superb game drives with the excellent Paul. The camp was very comfortable and I prefer the layout of the new communal areas. Lillian's food was delicious and the company was excellent. I would (and have) fully recommend the Il Moran to anyone wanting to come to Kenya to see the animals while enjoying a bit of luxury.

Must stay for Mara

London, United Kingdom

We spent 3 nights at Il Moran. From the moment we got there till we left we were well taken care of - Patrick and his team did an amazing job making us feel at home. Our tent was spacious and comfortable (Jackson took great care of us), the food was varied and delicious (thanks Gilbert). All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Patrick was a wonderful host. A special shout out to our ranger (Maina) who was very knowledgeable and patient answering all our questions; and made a real effort to make sure we saw everything that the Mara had to offer. I had an excellent massage with Nancy - highly recommend this.
