We had a memorable 4 days at the Mara Porini camp. We were actually the only 2 guests for the 3 nights which while slightly quiet in the evenings meant we had the whole reserve to ourselves. This involved sightings of 2 month old lion cubs and 2 day old cheetah cubs as well as all 3 cats with kills.... More

The Safari was fabulous and the camp staff, food etc just as good as I remember from our Visit to Porini Amboseli 5 years ago. My family were very impressed and I am sure will recommend you to other friends and family. We intend to use you again if we do another safari perhaps at another of your camps. There... More

8 of us (4 Canadians, 3 Brits & 1 American!) spent the first 3 days of a 2-week holiday at Mara Porini and it was utterly wonderful. The accommodation exceeded our expectations, the staff were unbelievably friendly (and coped very well with a bunch of over-excited 27/8 year olds!) and the guide (Jimmy) was extremely knowledgeable and awesome fun! We... More

We arrived at the Bush airstrip to a warm welcome from Jimmy and Mennai, our driver and spotter for our 2 night stay. Just before entering the camp Mennai had to get out of the 4X4 to move broken tree branches from the access road caused by the on-looking elephants who had just pushed them down!! We were greeted by... More

Yet another productive field season at Porini. The staff were helpful and accommodating as always. Learnt (even) more about conservancies and got to find out about the 'little' five thanks to a great hiking session with Wilson. The Porini concept is simple and makes the grade when it comes to minimal-impact tourism. It was encouraging to see the big numbers... More

It is hard to know what to say about Mara Porini. It was such a fabulous experience. It was the last stop on our safari and that was perfect. The Maasai Mara had everything and more. The camp is located outside of the park about an hour away. The good thing is that it is located in a conservancy and... More

Got to know and feel very comfortable with knowledgeable and helpful guides and drivers, who had a tremendous sense of where and when to find wildlife for viewing . Great food and well maintained facility. Plan to return. .

We had the best time at the Mara Porini (and Amboseli Porini). We wanted a trip where we contributed to the local economy, stayed in small eco-friendly camps and saw the wildlife, this camp met all our requirements, Every aspect of your needs are met by friendly, courteous staff. The tents were great, very rustic there was even a hot... More

We stayed for two nights at this Porini camp as part of a Kenya Safari tour. The tents are comfortable, the service and guide are great and the food is good, but what makes the place unique is the setting. Situated in the center of a conservancy leased from and run in conjunction with the Masai, this (and other) Porini... More

This is truly the perfect place to stay when visiting The Mara! Not only friendly staff and really nice tents but the wildlife is right there on the other side of the tent canvas. You will see and hear the wild animals at all hours of your stay. Food and drinks are excellent. One really nice thing about Mara Porini... More
