Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Small, intimate and hidden by ancient forest, Il Moran offers a luxuriously secluded stay amongst Africa’s stunning wilderness. With 10 tents lining the Mara River, we love how this camp offers off-the-grid luxury.
The 10 tents are spacious and airy, the front canvas wall opening out onto the verdant plains. We love the unique wooden beds made from fallen olive trees, and the patterned rugs offer a traditional African charm. We’ve spent many an evening relaxing in the Victoria style bathtub, listening to the sounds of the bush and enjoying the privacy.
This camp is perfect for couples looking for a romantic safari; however the open-air dining tent is great for those who wish to still mingle with other travellers and swap safari tales. If you really fancy a secluded stay, we love enjoying a star-lit dinner right by the river. The camp also has a wonderful, spacious mess tent with plenty of indoor and outdoor lounging areas, including a trendy bar where you can grab a G&T and relax with a book.
Il Moran has a fantastic view of the wildebeest migration from July to October, but come here any time of the year and you’ll find plenty of incredible game, from prowling lion prides, to gigantic elephant and hippo by the river. The camp only allows four guests per vehicle, ensuring that you get an exclusive experience and that everyone has a front row view of the action.
