We stayed at Rhino camp for a couple of nights in mid Jan. The place was amazing and David (manager) and his team welcome you in with broad smiles and endless enthusiasm. The set-up is good, with a watering hole right in front of the main tent and animals walking through the camp at night! The food was excellent, as...

We loved all the staff - they had such a personal touch with every aspect of our stay. The tents are so lovely, overlooking a watering hole where we could see elephants, giraffes, buffalo, and antelope through the day (and night!). The food was delicious, the conversation thought provoking, and our time relaxing. The guides are very knowledgeable too!

We stayed at Porini Rhino camp over New Years and for most of it we had the camp to ourselves. The camp is exceptional, wonderful just to see and watch the animals come to the watering hole, or spend time talking to the guides. David the manager when we visited was wonderful, we spent a couple of nights enjoying his...

I am an Australian Photographer and travelled to Ol Pejeta Conservancy in November 2016. We chose to stay in the Porini Rhino Camp as we had stayed in Porini Camps on previous trips and knew they were not only conservationally sound camps but always comfortable and welcoming. David, Nicholas and the team at Porini Rhino Camp could not have been...

A truly amazing time. We have quite high standards, especially being residents in Kenya, we're spoilt for choice. Porini is exceptional. Very comfortable camp and the tents are brilliant. The staff are superb. We were very lucky to see some incredible animals as the park is very well populated.

In a remote area of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, this is an amazing camp with an amazing crew. The mess tent overlooks a large watering hole with frequent wildlife visitors! Little John and Lenny were great guides with a great sense of humor. They really want to share the land and their culture with you. Make sure you visit the Chimpanzee...

We were a family of 3 travelling in September and spent 2 nights at Porini Rhino. The camp was fairly quiet with just 2-3 tents occupied while we were there. Probably due to it being the migration season so most people opt for the Mara. I think that Ol Pejeta and the Porini rhino camp are very underrated. Having travelled...

Porini Rhino Camp really is the ultimate camping experience - from the second you are greeted by the Camp Manager David you feel right at home. This camp is very special; it is hidden away in a secluded valley with only seven guest tents. The friendly staff make sure your stay is incredibly comfortable; the food is outstanding (compliments to...

This is the best vacation I've ever had! The campsites our beautiful and the food is very good. The manager, David, was a highlight of the trip. He has a joy for life that is absolutely infectious! Our two guides, Benjamin and Little John, were so awesome. They helped us find so many animals and were very knowledgeable about them....

We loved Porini Rhino camp! David (the camp manager) is the best! He had our family laughing the entire time during our two days there, while also providing first class service. The accommodations (tents and camp) were immaculate, the food was excellent, and the safari experience exceeded our expectations. Our “game drives” were with “Little John” and “Benjamin”, both Maasai...
