Governors Il Moran Camp, Kenya, Masai Mara

Overview


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.

Accommodation


The intimate Il Moran offers just ten tents that wind along the Mara River. The expansive tents are all en-suite, with huge walk in showers and ball-and-claw baths. The king-size beds, atop heavy-weave carpets, are fashioned from ancient olive trees and clad in Egyptian linens. The spacious tents open onto private verandas with furniture for secluded dining, and a hammock from which guests can laze in the glow of paraffin lanterns while they hear the hippos grunt and snort in the water down below.

Wildlife


Between July and October each year, 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in search of sustaining seasonal grasses. The spectacle of the vast herds crossing rivers and sweeping across the golden savannah is an unrivalled safari experience, and predators lie in wait to snare an ungulate. At all times of the year, game viewing is spectacular – birds, butterflies, hippos, elephants and leopards can all be found within close proximity to Il Moran. The bushlands around Rhino Ridge offer great opportunities for spotting one of the Masai Mara’s black rhinos.
The open savannah and undulating hills of the Masai Mara are home to a large diversity of game, including cheetah, hyena, and the famous black-maned Mara lions, which prey on the herds of zebra, wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, buffalo, kongoni and topi that abound in the golden grasslands.
The bird list totals over 450 species, ranging from the large (Common Ostrich), to the small (Cardinal Quelea). Six of the seven species of Kenyan vulture (Egyptian, Hooded, Griffon, Nubian, White-backed and White-headed) can be seen in the reserve. The Mara is also home to three uncommon woodpeckers (Golden-tailed, Little Spotted and Fine-banded), and the rare and elusive African finfoot and Blue quail.
