Il Moran is widely regarded as the premiere camp in the Masai Mara, with the best game viewing right on your doorstep.
This is the camp for those who want that extra bit of luxury. We’ve kept Governors’ Il Moran small and intimate, with added touches that place this camp at the top of the safari accommodation range. You’ll be the personal guest of our manager who will look after all your needs.
Hidden under ancient trees deep in the forest, are just ten tents which line the winding banks of the Mara River. Dark chunky wooden tables contrast with oversized blue couches and a central, colourfully beaded chandelier, while tribal portraits and African artefacts are dotted around. Meals are served on the raised wooden decking of the main mess and dining tent which offers a birds eye view of the snorting hippos below. The main feature is a sunken fire pit which is lit in the evenings – the perfect spot to sit back with a cocktail of your choice.
We do offer a range of spa treatments which can be done from the privacy and comfort of your tent – please view the full treatment list HERE.
Il Moran is small and peaceful – the ideal camp for honeymooners and couples who are looking for a very special safari experience, or even families with older children. This camp has been awarded a Silver Eco Rating by Eco-Tourism Kenya for our sustainable tourism practices in place.
Governors’ Il Moran Camp has a Covid-Compliant license to operate, for more details click HERE.
We are pleased to offer a very unique service of in-camp Covid testing for our guests, meaning extra nights in Nairobi at the end of a safari may not be necessary. You can read more about this HERE.
