The convervancy was teeming with wildlife. No other vehicles except for the camp vehicles. So no hinderance, no disturbance. You are all alone to enjoy this beautiful conservancy. We could see cheetah with cubs, several lion prides, elephants, green mamba, amazing birds etc.

What a beautiful area. And so green in the dry season. Fever forests, savanna, rocky crags, streams, and bush--all packed with animals. We stayed three nights as part of a Gamewatchers Adventure Camp safari and weeks later, can't stop smiling.

This is a great alternative to the Mara. Far fewer flies. Far fewer vans. Yet lots of wildlife in a diverse landscape.

This was our first time to East Africa and our travel agent recommended staying in the private conservancies run by Porini/Gamewatchers rather than the National Reserve. It was a brilliant recommendation! We enjoyed the feeling of being alone with the animals and land. The Masai guides and drivers were excellent and so knowledgeable and the 'tent' experience at Porini Mara... More

The very first time I travelled to Africa in 2010, I wasn’t aware of the difference between the conservancies and national reserve. I was terribly confused with all the camps within the Mara and all the various destinations in Kenya and Tanzania. Fortunately, I ended up booking my first trip with Porini camps and I limited my travel to masai... More

First class all-round. The tented camps add a further dimension to visiting this part of Africa. The Porini camps staff are knowledgeable and friendly and ensure a great time is enjoyed. The food is excellent and the game drives unparalleled as only two/three vehicles are permitted in the Conservancy. The animals are unphased by their presence, making for tremendous photo... More

We visited Porini Mara from one of the 'luxury' camps in Amboseli and were a bit concerned about the basic nature of the camp. We need not have worried. From our Masai guides who met us at the airplane and stayed with is throughout to the kitchen staff and the chef , everyone lavished us with so much care and... More
