Named after the Maasai people who inhabit the area, and the Mara River, which flows through this great reserve, the Masai Mara National Reserve is a land of breathtaking vistas over endless game-filled plains. With Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, it is known the world over for the awe-inspiring spectacle of the annual Great Migration over the golden savannahs. Whilst the migration is spectacular, the Masai Mara offers a constant and unparalleled flow of wildlife throughout the year.
Il Moran is the most exclusive of the Governors’ Collection. Situated atop a sheer-drop bank of an S-bend in the Mara River, and tucked into a thick grove of ancient shady trees, Il Moran offers a luxurious and intimate safari experience to discerning guests. Just a short drive from the airstrip and near the big game hotspots of the Paradise Plains and Musiara Marsh, where much of the BBC's 'Big Cat Diary' is filmed, the exclusive Il Moran is perfect for up-close encounters with wildlife. Added to this, the commitment to service excellence, luxuriously appointed accommodation and sumptuous meals make for an idyllic African safari in a pristine wilderness.
Airstrip transfers, accommodation, meals, selected wines, beers and soft drinks, 2 game viewing excursions daily and laundry.

"I cannot imagine a better place to stay during the migration. Il Moran is wonderfully intimate, yet perfectly situated. It is right on the bank of the river, with many hippos always visible from your tent. Best of all, Il Moran is located very close to several large prides of lions, including nearly all ones featured on Big Cat Diaries. We loved that Il Moran was small, intimate, personal and provided exceptional service. It was the best camp we visited in our 12 days of safari. In this area, we stayed at Il Moran and Little Governors and can tell you that Il Moran is much much better option than Little Governors."
"Trip of a lifetime Where to begin? This was to be a trip of a life time for us, and it didn't disappoint, Il Moran promised a little bit of extra luxury and excellent service, They far exceeded this. From the warm welcome of Kenyan hospitality at ts best, to the fabulous tents (can you really call them tents when it has a luxury en suit bathroom?), the service we experienced was second to none. Patrick and his team should be extremely proud of themselves"

"Paradise This is an amazing Camp. Worth every Star it has and more. We had two perfect nights there. The staff and management couldn't of done more to of made our 'Safari' the very best."
"Perfect first safari This was our first visit to Kenya, the Masai Mara and Governors Il Moran. The flight into the Mara from Nairobi Wilson was a great (if a little bumpy!) way to start our stay, giving a real sense of arrival on touchdown at the local airstrip. We were met at the airstrip by our guide Maina who took us back to camp in his Landrover (more on them later). Not knowing what to expect, the number of animals that we saw just on the short drive to camp really amazed us (including three of the big five)."
