Governors' Il Moran Camp

Country: Kenya

Destination: Masai Mara

Property Group: Governors' Camp Collection

Style: Safari Camp

Number of Rooms: 10

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.   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.

Little Governors

Country: Kenya

Destination: Masai Mara

Property Group: Governors' Camp Collection

Style: Safari Camp

Number of Rooms: 17

Located on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve, the camp is accessed by a very short boat ride across the Mara River, then an escorted walk through the riverine forest. Vehicles are left on the far river bank and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed. The guest tents at Little Governors’ have wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the marsh in front of camp.

Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air, and the resident families of warthogs frequently wander amongst the tables. Since all Governors’ properties are unfenced, all kinds of wildlife visit the camp and guests may need to make way for elephants which often visit during lunch time! In the evening, a warming log fire burns in front of the bar tent, and a candlelit dinner is served in the nearby dining tent.
