Captain Billy says "YES"

London, United Kingdom

Many people think of Glamping as a nicer way of camping. Il Moran takes it to a whole new level. From the moment we arrived and met by the camp manager with welcoming drinks, to the moment we left and she saw us off at the local airfield, we were made to feel special. The "tents" are huge, with every ameticy adn facility you could expect. Event a mini bar, where they ask what you want it filled with, rather than the generic miniautres of branded alcohol and a can of beer. The bed was huge, the sitting area was more than comfortable and the external seating was amazing, with a view directly onto a corner of the Mara where the hippos like to rest. The bathroom was unexpected, with walk in shower, flushing toilet and a large bath and twin basins, the sort fo thing you woudl expect in any 5* hotel, but in a tent. The food was excellent, the bar well stocked with decent whisky, gins and vodka, rather than your "supermarket specials". The staff were faultless, freindly and professional. They have their own water plant (reverse osmosis) there, so they provide you with a water bottle to keep and you can refill everyday, without worrying about the quality of the water or using plastic bottles. This trip was special for us as we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. On the day of our anniversary, we were greeted at our tent with a wake up call and a pot of tea at 5am and then taken off to the launch site. The staff helped me as much as possible to get into the basket as one of my legs doesn't work very well. The ride over the Mara watching the sunrise was really something special. When we landed, we were met and joined a few others for a Champagne breakfast (everything cooked on demand in the open) and then continued on a private game drive, for just me and my wife. In the evening at dinner, we were exhausted and then a number of Masia people entered the restaurant area, singing and playing instruments. When the chef then brought out a cake for us, we realised this performance was all for us. Overwhelming and emotional, with a bottle of Champagne then opened for us with the compliments of the management. Our driver/guide was introduced to us for the next few days, Enos, a wonderful guy, great sense of humour and great knowledge. He really looked after us and with him we saw every animal we hoped to see, prides of lions, herds of many elephants and a complete surprise when he said the migration had started early this year and he would take us to the Tanzania border and see if we can see the wildebeest crossing. He was very patient that day and we had lunch near to the crossing, but far enough away to see if the wildebeest started heading that way. He was right and we witnessed one of nature's most exclusive events. I could write for hours on this place, and we were only there for 3 days. It was outstanding in every way; location, people, staff, food, drinks etc etc. We were made to feel very special. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. We will definitely see you again.
