I can't say enough good things about Gamewatchers! I traveled alone to Kenya in December of 2012 and would jump at the chance to do it again. I chose Gamewatchers because of their commitment to the environment and working with indigenous tribes. Their camps are very Eco-conscious, leased from the local Massai people and staffed by the Massai as well.... More

We tend to be conservative in destination selection for vacations, so to make plans for an Africa Safari was a little stretch for us. We are so glad that we made this one of out top bucket list destinations. I did lots of research prior to the trip to try to narrow down where to go. There is obviously lots... More

We were drawn to Gamewatchers' Porini Camps because they are eco-conscious, intimate, and situated on private conservancies. The Ol Kinyei conservancy is located on leased land from the local Maasai community, and Gamewatchers also works closely with the Maasai to generate jobs (our guide/spotter Josphet and driver Tippa were from nearby villages). The camps leave no footprint, meaning that they... More

We travelled here with the help of go2africa.com in September 2014. This was our honeymoon and first safari experience and the two night stay at the Porini Mara camp could not have been more perfect! We were met by two friendly guides Nelson and Geoffrey at the airstrip. They were the guides for the entire trip and they were polite,... More

Our four night stay at the Porini Mara Camp was a fantastic and incredible experience, exceeding all our expectations. The facilities are very comfortable, the Safari drives well planned and diverse, but most importantly, the Maasai staff are very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable, making the stay also a very interesting and fascinating cultural experience.

Great accommodation--as long as you get use to bucket showers--gives just enough for hair wash and soaping-- no time to get kinks out from jeep drives over bumpy trails Best is attentive Maasi staff who are friendly and enjoy what they do By staying in Conservancy they limit other camps so when you find a cheeta etc. there are only...

We stayed for 2 nights in early September and couldn't have been happier. The staff were all excellent and so was the food. Dining every night with the other campers and sharing experiences was really nice. The game drives were great with animals everywhere. The drivers were very good at spotting animals from a long distance so we didn't miss... More

Just one of the best experiences ever. The camp is located in the Ol Kiney Conservancy. A peaceful and wonderful place. With only a few tents you feel in a short time at home. The staff is super friendly, the chef cook a master and the managment professional. It was an unique experience being in the middle of a diverse... More

I loved this camp and the people that run it. Jimmy the manager is so friendly and welcoming! I was sitting on my porch one afternoon and when I looked up there was an impala standing right in front of me! My first game drive we ended up about 10 feet from a sleeping male lion! I hit gold! Had... More

We visited Porini Amboseli, Porini Lion, and then came to Porini Mara last. It's the smallest of the camps, but it's absolutely lovely and our family liked it the best. The setting and location are beautiful and the staff professional but relaxed and very, very friendly. The conservancy where this camp is located gets less vehicle traffic than the other... More
