Intimate luxury best describes the top of the range safari experience offered by Governors’ IL Moran Camp in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara. Located in the shelter of an ancient forest on the banks of the Mara river, where hippos wallow, the camp is in the best game viewing area of this famous reserve, where big cat sightings are plentiful all year round and the thrills of the Great Migration are to be seen between July and October. The camp itself is beautifully furnished and laid out, so that never before has living under canvas been more glamorous.
There are just ten incredibly spacious luxury tents at Governors’ IL Moran. Hand-carved olive wood king size beds draped in soft linen, cozy rugs on the floors, writing desk, coffee table and stylish old-world safari decor create an romantic atmosphere, that only gets better in the ensuite bathroom, tiled and with a delightful roll-top bath. All the amenities you’d expect from a five-star hotel but with the pleasure of looking out over a wild river bank and perhaps an elephant strolling by.
The romance continues at candlelit dinners in the open dining tent or alfresco under the stars. Several courses of excellent food are conjured into being by the skilled camp chefs who delight in creating fresh menus every day. Not to mention the joys of a bush breakfast after a sunrise balloon ascension, viewing the game from a magical new perspective.
Stunning game-viewing is to be expected here where the Big Cat Diaries were filmed, but the experienced guides find new surprises every day and go out of their way to accommodate guests’ requests, whether it is seeking out an elusive leopard or lingering to watch a cheetah make its kill. There are walking safaris for a more up close and personal experience of Africa, and visits to a Masai village for those who want a better understanding of this fascinating culture.
Governors’ IL Moran is ideal for honeymooners in search of a secluded idyll, and for those who like their safari experience lavishly steeped in luxury.
