Governors’ Il Moran Camp

Il Moran Camp is small and intimate and perfect for honeymooners.

We have found the ultimate romantic safari camp in an indigenous forest grove in the magnificent Masai Mara Game Reserve so book Governors’ Il Moran Camp today, small and intimate and perfect for honeymooners. With so much choice at your fingertips when you choose accommodation in Kenya’s famous Masai Mara, we recommend Il Moran – with just 10 classic canvas tents, it’s considered to be one of Africa’s premium safari camps ever.

For superior luxury combined with total wilderness immersion, Governors’ Il Moran Camp adds special attention to detail where dinners are served by candlelight down by the Mara River and where king sized beds have been hand crafted from fallen olive trees in the park. 

Each classic safari tent boasts a deep Victorian style bath tub with river views and beautiful plush décor that fits the theme of comfortable and relaxed luxury in nature. Eco-Tourism Kenya has rated Governors camp with a Silver Eco Rating thanks to its endeavours to be sustainable in all ways.  

Spa treatments are an added luxury and honeymooners can enjoy massages in their own tents to the sounds of birds and running water. We love the central mess tent area and the huge soft couches beside heavy carved wooden tables and the cushions and rugs strewn all around in elegant casual style. 

Wildlife teems beside the Mara River and all around the camp so have your camera at the ready – walking safaris are popular at Governors’ Il Moran Camp and game drives go out twice a day to find countless wild animals. Explore the Masai Mara in all her wealth of biodiversity from the huge herds of plains game to the elephants and buffalo, the many cats prowling in wait and packs of wild dogs too. 

Experience the annual Great Migration and spend captivating hours watching the masses of wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River right in front of you. Hosts at Governor’s Il Moran are friendly and warm, the hospitality so efficient you may feel like royalty. Take a tour of a Masai village, soar up high in a hot air balloon take a day trip to Lake Victoria and spend time birding with sundowners in the bush.

Overview

Welcome to the smallest yet the most luxurious of all the Governors’ camps in Kenya, Il Moran is a plush little oasis chosen by film makers such as BBC (Big Cat Diary) and Planet Earth (Live) for this very attraction and for its perfect position in a forest on the Mara River where wildlife and birdlife teem.

The main attraction at Governors’ Il Moran is the game drives into the Masai Mara every day and guests go out three times a day to make the most of the dawn, the midday and the dusk into the nights. Wild animals are everywhere including in the camp and at the Mara River so photography is the big sport here. It’s tiring work looking for predator prey interactions all day so be treated to huge, cooked breakfasts daily and buffet lunches between the outings to find the game. 

A formal dinner by candlelight at night sets the scene for something out of Africa so maybe dress for the occasion after a hot shower and sit up late sharing stories over excellent wines. Guests love the sunken fire pit area on the edge of the Mara River where the glow of the wilderness and the starry skies adds value to your sense of peace and coming home to self.

Only 10 classic canvas double tents are filled with unique king size beds hand carved from dead olive wood, hot showers and top end colonial style accessories. Enjoy attentive, personalised service and only bring children over 8 years of age. Book that dream Kenya safari tour to see the jaw dropping Great Migration and join world famous film makers and photographers at work in this paradise setting.
