Staying at Porini was amazing because it's located on a conservancy. It meant that we were able to see so many animals without driving very far and without seeing any other people. The food, accommodation, and service were all excellent.

Absolutely fantastic! My husband and I were not sure what to expect when we booked this safari but were pleasantly surprised. It is not exactly "roughing it" camping! We were greeted on arrival by the very professional and friendly local Masai team, who some are part land owners of the conservatory, which we were pleased to learn as the majority...

Mara is a very pretty camp. David, the Manager, is very hospitable and made us feel most welcome. Simon the Hippo did not appear but I think I heard him! Jimmy our guide, was excellent.

We had 3 nights at Porini Mara, the first 2 of which were (by coincidence) exclusive to our family group of seven, including boys aged 8 and 14. I would echo the other reviews here. The location, service, expertise, standards and hospitality were simply astounding. David and his team could not have been more helpful or delivered a better experience....
