My new wife and I spent 3 days and 2 nights at this camp during our trip around Kenya. It is an Eco friendly, All inclusive, Community involved way to experience all that the Mara has to offer. The camp itself is outside the Mara national park, on its own conservancy! Within seconds of our arrival at the conservancy, we... More

I had a great experience at Mara Porini. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. There was always someone to escort us to and from our tents after dark to make sure that we were safe. The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. We wanted to experience a night game drive even after a long day on safari and the... More

My husband & I have visited South Africa & other countries in Africa on various occassions and experienced several game reserves & parks. None have given us the experience we had in the Mara Porini Camp. It is a true game safari experience. The roads in are rough and the trip long but heh you are in a national game... More

David and all the staff at the camp made our stay with them so comfortable, nothing was too much bother. The tents are well equipped - the bush shower a great experience. Each day we were awoke with coffee and cookies by one of the staff before getting ready for our early morning game drive. The driver and the guides... More

The Mara Porine Camp combines good service for their guests with an exclusive safari’s with close up to many animals. When going to Africa one expect to see many wild animals. The excellent guides of the Mara Porine Camp have a good knowledge to find them and show them to you. Also the guides give an excellent explanation about the... More

I made a repeat trip to both Mara Porini and Lion Porini camps in the Mara this year to take my father-in-law (he wasn't with me and my family last year). What an amazing place. The staff are wonderful but so too is the game viewing. Honestly, I can't ever remember having a more restful and enjoyable holiday or wanting... More

We had an amazing three-night stay at Porini Mara. Our 7-yr old daughter was the only child there, but was made to feel extra special because of that. The bush setting of the camp is beautiful - and there's plenty of game to see ... we followed lion pawprints in the direction of our tent during a walking safari !... More

Our little bush plane arrives at the Mara Siana Airstrip and we meet our Gamewatcher Jeep and our guides, Josphett and Stanley. I can't tell how wonderful and nice these Massai Warrior guides were! I asked them before we get started about the restroom at the Landing Strip, they point at a gray hut. My husband has to help me... More

My teaching colleague and I just returned from our 7- day Porini Camp adventure. We stayed in 3 of the 4 Porini Camps – Maasai Mara (Ol Kinyei Conservancy), Laikepia (Ol Pejeta Conservancy), and Amboseli (Selenkay Conservancy). From the moment we were greeted by the Porini staff at the airstrip, we knew the Porini experience would be better than any... More
