Governors’ II Moran Camp and Loldia House are two of the most spectacular properties in the Governors’ portfolio of exceptional destinations. Governors is the pioneer of classic safaris in East Africa, and they certainly set the benchmark in terms of offering the quintessential safari experience. The latest upgrade to Governors’ Camp collection in East Africa is worthy of documenting! Moran Camp is located in the Masai Mara, and Loldia is in the Great Rift Valley – both areas renown for their game viewing. Needless to say, the locations of both these camp are in the most sought after destinations in the world.
Governors recognises the need to keep up to date with the latest trends in decor and design; and constantly strives to improve functional elements within each of their camps. These classic camps don’t intrude on their natural surrounds, and prefer the untamed wild to be their focal point, rather than being ostentatious. Tasteful furnishings and well-appointed furniture provide an exceptional level of luxury, but not a luxury that detracts from your surrounds. Governors encapsulates the art of being sophistically understated.
So, let’s give a quick run down of the recent changes at both camps, bearing in mind that the tents were refurbed during the phase 1 development at the beginning of the year:
- The entire mess tent was revamped and reconstructed.
- Mess tent is now located on the edge of the Mara River, with sweeping views of the landscape below.
- New platform area leading out from mess tent, with large comfy couches and mood lighting that creates atmosphere.
- Fire-pit on the deck – perfect place for large bonfires and creates a space to swap stories about your time in the bushveld.
- There’s been a change in decor, which includes a warmer and more bold colour palette. Reds, royal blues and brass ornaments define the look and feel of the main area.
- Brand new fleet of Toyota Land Cruisers – and Governors only ever allocates 4 people per 1 game viewer.
Loldia House is designed to reflect an atmosphere from a bygone era. The house was always an old family farm, that provides exquisite accommodation in a popular safari region. After a two month revamp, the new Loldia House was revealed – with the following changes :
- New dining room with high ceilings
- Swanky bar area in the original dining room
- Soft furnishings complementing that classic feel of the house, with a focus on minimalism and pops of colour throughout. Bathrooms have also been reworked to incorporate a more crisp and fresh look.
- The original manager’s house is now a cottage complete with en-suite guest rooms adorned with verandahs.
- A perfectly positioned infinity pool has provided much needed respite from the African heat.
