The drivers from the camp came out of the Conservancy to meet us and take us back to the camp in the safari vehicles. The driver of our vehicle was  Big John and guide Mishek.   On reaching the...

Had the most amazing stay at this conservancy. Travelled here with my partner and we were met with a warm welcome. The game drives were spectacular and the game watchers were very professional and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed observing a pride of lions and managed to take amazing photographs. It was also my birthday when I was there and...

If you are planning a safari, stop, book here. Every thing is incredible. The sightings are so numerous and each more exiting than the last. The guide and spotter, that's right 2 in each truck will spot animals that you can't even find with you're binocs. They explain anything and every things in as much details as you want/need. You...

We wanted to go to the Porini Camps because of their idea. They are environmentally-friendly Eco-Camps. They aim to work closely with communities living alongside national parks and wildlife reserves to help them derive benefits from conserving wildlife species and the indigenous habitat. From the day we landed at Kenyatta Airport, we were taken such good care of. Everything went...

My 7th visit to this camp and still not had enough! Each trip is different as the wildlife is so unpredictable, but one thing is as close to certainty as possible - sighting big cats in the conservancy! Please don't go if you want a very relaxing holiday, because it's full on from the moment you arrive. From early morning...

We traveled here in September 2016 and stayed at 3 Porini camps - Amboseli, Lion and Bush camp. These camps provided an extremely up close and personal experience. Porini, as a whole, and in terms of location exceeded our expectations. We expected to be within feet of the animals in their environment, their home, and this is what we received....
