Stayed here early September. There are so many good things to say that I'd have to write an essay. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every wish.

We had a great time at the Mara Porini Camp. The service by Maurice Nzwii in booking the trip was excellent – he worked extra hard to make sure we got the weekend we were looking for and was always responsive to my emails. Payment was easy and Maurice was flexible. The safari was great – our car broke down...

I stayed here with my parents and we had the best time. The staff couldn't be friendlier. We had the most wonderful Masai guides- Simon ad Jasper- who literally know everything about the animals and the land and give an incredible commentary during our game drives. Harry, the manager, even gave us some astronomy lessons! We were woken up daily...

After a long trip through Uganda and Kenya, after exhausting bus rides and unfriendly taxi-drivers, was the Porini Mara camp like an Oasis. The manager, the driver, the guide, the chef, the people,... there is not one person in this camp, who doesn't seem to like his job. And this is why they are all so good at it. The...

The camp is very small (just six very comfortable tents) in the middle of a private conservancy packed with wildlife and offers a thorough immersion in nature. David, the director, manages the camp with a unique enthusiasm that propagates to the whole staff. We were pampered all the time. The guides are expert and do their very best to offer...

This is one of the best places I've ever been. Beautiful, serene, well staffed and with outstanding guides. They may call these tent camps but I've been in luxury hotels that were not as comfortable and did not have nearly as good staff. The game was unbelievable, the guides knowledgeable and friendly and the food and accommodations were superb. This...

AMAZING WILDLIFE! I’ve been on safari ~45+ days in my life and would highly recommend Porini Mara Camp visit for at least 4-5 days. Staying 4-5 days will allow you to cover the conservancy and see the beauty of the entire place as opposed to spending your time transiting between other camps. The camp is very nice (I agree with...
