After that we headed to our camp, it was quite a long drive to the camp. The staff were great and Tony, the manager was very attentive,... More

Porini Amboseli was our first of 4 camps (3 Porinis and one non-Porini) visited on our 2 week safari in Kenya. This was our first trip ever to Kenya and first time on safari so we had no idea what to expect. My husband and I originally wanted to do the Porini Adventure Camps, hoping to avoid too fancy of...

When we drove to the camp through rather arid terrain we were apprehensive initially but these were put to rest quickly by the sheer variety of wild life we encountered and the exclusivity we had to the conservancy as Porini Amboseli guests. The camps were spacious with all amenities. Quality of service was high class. The walking trip in the... More

Steve from Gamewatchers was very good at responding quickly to any requests and assuring us regarding personal safety and at no time did we feel insecure. Wilson and Julius were great guide and driver. We saw a very cute elephant calf playing in the mud, the conservancy was great, heaps of animals and the visit to the Masai village very... More

We stayed here in January 2014. What a great time! We were pretty much the only people there, but the safari experience was fantastic. Wilson, our guide, was great - very knowledgeable. The long day going to the base of Kilimanjaro was great - we got the iconic photos of the elephants crossing in front of the mountain. My daughter... More

Our whole experience with Porini was brilliant. Well thought out with excellent viewings, freedom to do what we wanted under the expert guidance with the wonderful staff. The food and accommodation were excellent. The fact the camps cater for small numbers ensured personalised service, nothing was ever a trouble and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. We are planning... More

I was fortunate to enjoy another special safari experience thanks to Tony and his Porini team. The sight of elephants marching with the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro is truly special, and the conservancy was also rich with varied wildlife to enjoy. Tents and food - as always with Porini - was excellent. Maasai guide Jonah and driver Shadrack were excellent... More

Quiet, comfortable, good food, excellent guide and driver (Jonah and Julius). Range of activities, superb opportunities for wildlife sightings. Several hours up close to the elephants of Amboseli National Park - outstanding!!! Probably a good time of year to go to this National Park as other tourists were few and far between. Only slight downside, this camp is particularly tucked... More

Porini Amboseli Camp (PAC), our first stop in a whirlwind 7-day safari, delivered the best service I’ve ever experienced. In fact, I hesitate to call it ‘service’ as it felt more like camaraderie. Immediately after our visit to a very welcoming Maasai village, it rained for a solid 6 hours. We didn't really mind as it gave us an opportunity... More

My wife and I traveled to Africa for the first time this last January, and this was the first camp we visited in Kenya. Julie from Gamewatchers organized our entire 3 week trip and we could not have been happier. At Porini Amboseli we had an outstanding camp Manager (Chloe) and game drive guides (Jonah and Julius). We visited a... More
