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.

Wonderful camp and fabulous staff in the best location

Diani Beach, Kenya

Il Moran is simply the best Mara experience. The camp tents are luxurious and provide security and safety so you can enjoy the sounds of hippos bellowing and lions roaring at night. The common rooms and bar areas allow for various degrees of sociability as one prefers. The service is excellent and the food delicious - with Chef happy to cater for all preferences. This time we were guided by Enos, who has an extensive knowledge of the park and its fauna and flora, and is a gifted vocal mimic and story teller as well. He made the game drives a thoroughly unique experience! This is our 5th time to the Mara and 2nd to Il Moran... and I cant wait to go back. Please can we book Enos for the next one too?

Le Mont Felard, United Kingdom

We loved every aspect of this camp. Only 10 luxurious tents so it is a very personal experience. Patrick the manager took an interest in each and every guest, as did his colleagues. The food was fantastic and the game drives nothing short of incredible, Kerore our guide made sure we saw everything, really close up too. The camp has no fences so you quite often you do not need to go out looking for animals, they pop by. That said the focus on safety of guests is impressive. Highly recommended. PS splash out on the balloon trip, seems expensive but worth every penny.
