The title says adventure camping but it is more luxurious than any camping I have ever done. The tents are spacious enough to stand up in (I am 6 ft tall) and the foam mattresses will let you get a good nights sleep. The food is excellent with fresh baked rolls at lunch and dinner and the desserts will rival... More

We travelled as two younger students looking for a budget safari in a private game reserve. We spent 5 days at Porini Adventure Camp, and we found the stay to be absolutely fantastic! The camp hosts 18 guests, and the tents are big enough to stand upright in. In addition they are fitted with a mattress on the floor and... More

The adventure safari was way and beyond our dreams. Porini works together with the Masai and 'make' camps on their land and provide employment for many which obviously has a knock on effect by hellping the individual's village. Everything was so nice and the staff at both camps really charming and helpful. Sleeing in the tents was extremely comfortable and... More

The guide was exceptional. Adventure camp offers an authentic wildlife experience. I discovered the beauty of the Masai Mara. The best New Year any solo traveller could hope for. Watching a pride of lions is about as good as it gets. The birdlife and wildflowers were also a surprising attraction and the short rains made the whole area verdant. Out... More

The adventure camping is great! It was far much better that we had expected. We were impressed by the organization, the toilets and the beauty of the place. The food was excellent, the chef is great! As for the game drives, it was an unforgetable experience. The drivers and guides are great spotters and shared a lot of knowledge with... More

We visited Ol Kinyei after three nights at the Gamewatchers camp at Selenkay. After the great stay we had there it was hard to imagine that Ol Kinyei could be as good - but it was every bit as good. Wilson and George went out of their way to find us everything we asked for including the leopard on the... More

Welcomed by the manager, Jackson and staff with a flannel and fruit drink. A lovely setting, with camp fire and guards, flushing loo and shower en-suite 'shed' for each tent. Food was stunning, creative and plentiful. We were surprised wine and beer were on sale,and very reasonable at 850 KES a bottle of wine. Fantastic guide Amos, with great sense... More

I have just spent 7 days in the adventure Camp at Ol Kinyei and had the most fantastic time. Thanks to Jackson and his team the camp is a wonderful and friendly place to be. If I had to list the three best things about my holiday the staff would be top - friendly welcoming gentle and knowledgeable. Always willing... More

I spent 3 nights here after the adventure camp in Selenkay. The location of this camp is awesome. It's very secluded. Animals pass by the perimeter throughout the day and night. Don't worry you are enclosed in a "boma" when you sleep. You can see waterbucks and hear them bark up close. Zebra and wildebeest walked around the outskirts. If... More

Another Porini masterpiece. Great camping, food and game watching. Could not have done better in a very expensive camp.The guides/spotters were amazing and the company of our fellow campers was just wonderful. Our list of game viewing is almost endless - even saw wildebeest crossing the river - what a sight. However it was wet!! Great fun sliding around in... More
