Governors' IL Moran Camp (Masai Mara) Kenya
The camp for those who want that extra bit of luxury. We’ve kept Governors’ IL Moran Camp as small as possible, with added touches that make this the top of the range safari.
We’ve recreated the atmosphere of the original hunting camps. Hidden under ancient trees, deep in the forest, are just 10 tents. They line the winding banks of the Mara River.
You’ll be the personal guest of our manager, who’ll look after all your needs. Game drives and game walks are included in the rate and complimentary wine is served with dinner. Each room is furnished to a superior standard. Beds are handmade from specially selected wood taken from ancient olive trees.
Bathrooms have flush toilets, double showers filled to order with piping-hot water, where you can soap the day’s dust away. Every tent has an extended veranda. They’re designed so you can take dinner in private at your tent if you wish. Or just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds...
Birds and butterflies abound, elephant wander through the camp, at night leopard call nearby. During the day meals are served under the giant trees. There’s fresh fruits, cereals and hot-baked breads together with a cooked breakfast barbecued before your eyes. For lunch a buffet that’ll satisfy the hungriest appetites. Deep in the bush, our cordon-bleu dinners by candlelight are a truly unforgettable experience. Nowhere else can you get so far from civilization, yet stay in such style.
Mara Balloon Safaris:
The adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and the balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, you’re off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. The thing that amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute stillness, the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara . And if you’ve flown elsewhere, you’ve seen nothing like this. The sounds below drift clearly upwards: a lion’s roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them.
For an hour or so you drift wherever the air currents take you. If you’re lucky you’ll climb high above the Mara for the view of a lifetime. Then your balloon safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of balloon flights the world over you toast your return to earth with a champagne breakfast. The difference this breakfast happens in the bush, wherever you land, and it’s cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before kept you suspended in the air. Mara Balloon Safaris pioneered game-viewing by hot-air balloon in Africa. Today we operate from Governors’ Camps . We have some of the world’s most experienced pilots flying some of the world’s largest balloons. And our distinctive colors are known the world-over!
