My extended family of ten, ranging from ages 6 to 70, visited four Porini Camps: Amboseli, Rhino, Mara, and Lion. Every aspect of Porini - the cultural experience, game drives/wildlife, accommodations, service, food - was stellar, and I'm convinced is totally unique from any other safari experience. Porini's model is rooted in environmental and social responsibility and partnerships with local... More

Another outstanding visit to Porini Lion Camp. This camp certainly deserves its name - lions everywhere. One pride with twelve cubs regularly doing their thing within a few minutes drive from the camp. We also saw the two big males of the Monaco pride feasting on a widlebeest kill. Nice to see the three cubs that we had seen been... More

If you can't get enough of the Big Cats, the Porini Lion Camp is just the place for you. There are just a few small camps on the Olare Motorogi conservancy but over a hundred lions and and many leopards and cheetahs. So you are virtually assured of excellent cat sightings without having to jostle for space with the other... More

Porini Lion is one of my favourite camps in Africa. The location is fantastic - it is situated in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy where there is a high density of big cats and wildlife. Furthermore, it being in a private conservancy means there is very little vehicle traffic and off road and night driving is allowed. In the migration season... More

Within 10 mins of flying into camp I had seen more diversity of wildlife than on any other safari trip including 4 of the big 5 thanks to our truly incredible Masai guides. Although I was travelling alone, the small camps and the wonderful welcome the staff gave us made me feel immediately at ease. As the groups were small,... More

We stayed only two nights, but our guides asked what we wished to see and made sure we saw many lions, leopards, and cheetahs. Also saw so many other animals that I couldn't list them The guides took us out from sunrise to sunset, with just a two hour break, since we wanted to see as much as we could.... More
