After walking 260 Kilometers across Kenya (ProperWalk) Porini Mara Camp was a much needed respite. The tents were fabulous, spacious, hot water and great food. I basically could go where I wanted and stay there as long as I wanted. Maybe one other vehicle but usually my guides and I were alone to view the animals that we saw. It...

My husband and I were here for two nights in August 2012. There are only six tents, each with a capacity of three people and so it is a very intimate experience. In addition, the camp is located on a private reserve adjoining the main park (Masai Mara) and there are many opportunities to do intimate game drives on this...

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...

The camp accommodates a maximum of 12 guests, where guests enjoy game drives in 4x4s, sundowners at scenic viewing points and escorted walks with Maasai guides.
