This was my first visit to the Amboseli area and I was excited to see all the elephants! The camp itself is quite a distance from the park, which I wasn't prepared for, but was a great way to view the landscape. The crew was very friendly and kind as I was the only guest at the camp. The food...

After a long drive from Nairobi we were so happy to arrive at Porini Amboseli Camp with Peter welcoming us. As a family with kids 11 and 13 we had really high expectations of our first safaritrip and we really had a great time! Our fantastic guides Nelson and John gave us a lot of knowledge about the animals and...

This is our third trip with Gamewatchers and we always book directly. We spent 3 nights here and were not disappointed. The camp is comfortable, the tents are great and the food and service is more than you could hope for. Tony, the camp manager and his team make sure you want for nothing. We are very in favour with...

This was our 4th safari trip to Africa, and our first time staying at Porini Amboseli camp in the Selenkay Conservancy. We spent 4 nights at the camp in early September. We certainly enjoyed our stay, but we have liked other camps better. The food was excellent, but somewhat plain for our tastes. The tent was very nice, a comfortable...

This was my 7th visit to this camp in the same number of years, and I reflect on some of the changes I've seen there. The camp remains pretty much the same - located in true acacia wilderness - no swimming pool, no television, no daily papers, no high security fence - so animals wander around inside the camp at...

In Sept 2016 I spent 3 fabulous nights at Porini Amboseli Camp, a haven of peace that is teeming with wildlife. This was my third visit to this camp, the first being over ten years ago, and the service was truly Five Star all round. The elephant population is tremendous, as is the abundance of lions and gazelles. My favourite...

After two days in the Nairobi Tented Camp where I saw four of the big five, my expectations for Amboseli were high and I was certainly not to be disappointed as we flew in on the little 6-seater plane. Before reaching the camp we came across a herd of elephants and successfully tracked a pride of lions. The abundance and...

This was our first experience with a tented camp in Kenya and also with the Porini camps and we were completely impressed. We had the best time ever. The tents are spacious, clean and the bathrooms are amazing considering that they are in a tent. No hesitations needed about the bucket showers as they are better than many hotels. The...
