I usually try and visit Porini Lion Camp whenever I am on safari and we were driven there from Porini Mara Camp (another one of may favourites). Since Porini clients can game drive in three conservancies (Ol Kinyei, Naibosho and Olare Motorogi) it is a great game drive from the Porini Mara Camp to Porini Lion Camp. I have visited...

Being first time visitors to the Mara, we were treated extremely well. Joseph, the Camp Manager, was always there to see that we were comfortable. Jackson and Ketere were great spotters of game, and knew the best positions to park for great memorable photos. We could charge our cameras and phones while on game drives, in the car ... amazing!!!...

Words can't even describe the experience we had at Porini. The service is amazing! The staff is courteous, easy to get to know and makes you feel very comfortable. The safari guides are extremely knowledgeable! We saw so many animals in such a short time. Had a picnic breakfast beside a hippo pool, sunset snacks and drinks out on the...

I can't say enough good things about Porini Lion camp in Maasai Mara. The staff is INCREDIBLE, doing everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. Joseph, Phillip, Jarrod, and Meshak are wonderful. The grounds are beautiful, tents are comfortable and so clean, food is amazing. There is not one negative thing I can say, I only wish we could have...

Few places are that near to the best wild life experiences you can find especially for big cats; lions, cheetas and leopards, always lion cubs, usually cheetah cubs, some time leopard cubs. Just returned from my 3rd stay at Porini and hope to get back soon. There is no feetness center or swimming pool between the tents, but you will...

Having experienced a Gamewatchers safari here in October 2010, we had to return to this expertly managed, engaging camp to re-live our first adventure. It was even better the second time. The food was outstanding and the schedule was slightly altered in order for us to see the wildlife in their most active state. I loved the extra touches the...

My dream holiday came true when I stayed at the Porini Lion camp in Kenya. Breathtaking scenery, amazing hospitality and warmth from the Masai people who looked after us, our perfectly comfortable camp away from the big tourist safaris and the hugely knowledgeable trackers who every day got us so close to such a wide range of animals and other...

We have just had the most amazing safari holiday and our daughters wedding in the Porini Lion camp. Whilst the camp is 'back to nature' as it's in the Conservancy, the setting, accommodation, food and most importantly the friendliness and dedication to service and client satisfaction of the Masai who looked after us was first class. Our daughter had a...

I would highly recommend Porini Lion Camp in Kenya to anyone planning a safari. The absolute magic of being so close to wildlife in their natural habitat was a major reason I found Porini Lion Camp so thrilling. The game trackers/spotters are absolute experts at knowing the whole game reserve and locating animals that are constantly on the move. My...
