Incredible Stay

Aberdeen, United Kingdom

We knew when we selected safari as part of our honeymoon it would be special however the experience at Il Moran from when we were picked up off our Governors Aviation flight until we were dropped back for our flight back to Nairobi was amazing! The welcome meeting and the issuing of our personalised water bottles was an excellent start but when we saw the accommodation for a “tent” we were blown away! It had everything you could need and was an even better standard than some hotel rooms. The tents were well spaced out and our had a perfect setting overlooking the Mara River with the hippos down below was breathtaking. The standard of food throughout our time in camp was excellent and they catered superbly for my dietary requirements, far better than some restaurants do in the UK. The chef and waiting staff were knowledgeable regarding allergens and were happy to discuss each aspect of the meal. The waiting and bar staff were excellent! They were attentive and always seeking to discuss what you had seen on each of your game drives. They were also incredibly knowledgeable and added extra information about a range of sights throughout the Masai Mara. Jackson and Dalmas served us throughout our time and were fantastic!! Could not praise their professionalism and knowledge highly enough! Our guide Enos who was assigned to us for the duration of our stay was fantastic!! His knowledge of not only the animals but the terrain of the Masai Mara was phenomenal!! He took us to remote locations where we saw incredible sights of lions, cheetahs, rhinos and leopards without the noise and distraction of numerous other safari vehicles. His humour and stories really did make those early mornings a lot easier. If anyone is thinking of going on safari would highly recommend Il Moran and Governors Camp! Thank you for an unforgettable stay!

Don't miss this camp!

We visited Il Moran in February 2019 for a safari. This camp was the most memorable of the several we visited (although all were excellent) The staff at this camp is exemplary, the tents comfortable and spacious, the food excellent, attention to detail is meticulous, and of course, we had knowledgeable driver/guides to show us all that the Mara has to behold. This camp is located on a river where hippos and crocodiles congregate, so being in camp was entertaining too. It is accessed by a swingy bridge that is crossed one person at a time. And they even have Wifi!!! He is a fun loving lab mix who loves everyone. LOL. Cannot wait to return.
