One of the oldest and best-known safari operators in Africa, Governors has a string of luxurious safari lodges in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Catapulted to fame by the BBC Big Cat Diary series, which was filmed on location, Governors' is the last word in predator game viewing and it just so happens that the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra passes through the private concession.
Governors' IL Moran Camp is the smallest and most luxurious of the six lodges in the Governors' portfolio with just ten massive walk-in safari tents – down from 20 to reduce the impact on the ecosystem. Each has a massive verandah with a private view of the Mara River; inside are enormous beds and decadent en suite bathrooms with free-standing Victorian baths, huge showers with hot running water, double vanities and a flush toilet.
To cap the luxurious intimacy, fine dining and attentive service, the wildlife experience is nothing short of phenomenal – small wonder why the BBC chose to film one of its most successful wildlife documentaries here. In a private corner of Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve, Patrick and his team of expert guides will take you on walking safaris, game drives and culturally-sensitive visits to the Maasai villages. For the ultimate experience you can take a balloon safari to Lake Victoria and stay at another world-class Governors' Camp: Mfangano Island Camp.
