We spent 3 nights at Porini Ambosell Camp, and another 3 at Porini Mara. So what do you get? Lots of animals, spectacular birds, good food, outside open fire, gins and tonic as the sun sets. The guides (local Masai in traditional costume) are both expert and willing. Technically accommodation is a tent, but really it's a room about 7... More

We are hopeless addicted to Africa and this was our 17 t safari. We wanted a great gaming experience, tented comfort,not uber luxury and an authentic bush experience. We chose Gamewatchers with high expectations having read and heard many extremely favorable reviews and I must say, their Porini Amboseli camp delivered in spades! One of the things that attracted us... More

We were picked up at the airport strip and treated to coffee and snacks before we headed off on a safari drive on our way to the camp. Our guide and driver were nice and willing to do whatever we needed. We saw lots of animals on the way to our camp. When we arrived we were greeted by those... More

Gamewatchers Porini conservancy camps offer an experience which surpassed all my expectations. I endorse all the superlative comments made by other guests. This was my first safari travelling solo at age 71. The organisation from start to finish could not be bettered. Steve dealt with my booking in a meticulous, prompt, patient, friendly and professional way answering all my questions.... More

My husband and I stayed at Porini Amboseli at the beginning of our safari honeymoon in January 2015 and can't say enough about this camp. We had never been on safari but the staff takes such great care of you! Tony is so welcoming and friendly, making sure we had anything we could want, and the staff was just as... More

My partner & I had 3 nights at Porini Amboseli camp and we had the most wonderful time. From our first afternoon visit to the Masai boma, followed by a sundowner at the waterhole near the camp (seeing elephants by infra red light was something else!) we were starting on a great experience. Our guides Dennis & Shadrack worked extremely... More

My wife and I stayed at the Porini Amboseli camp in January 2015 and had the best vacation of our lives. The staff was wonderful, the food was amazing and, of course, the game watching was spectacular. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! The tents are spacious and clean. They have rustic feel, but also contain most of... More

Was there for two nights Nov 2014 and had a fantastic experience with the Camp team and trackers. All very friendly and helpful. Any minor problems were fixed promptly. Great drives and sundowners by the elephant pool. Mt Killamanjiro is just the ultimate Jurassic park backdrop.

My daughter and I were at Porini Amboseli camp at the end of November. We had a great experience. The camp is very isolated, the only one in Selenkay Conservancy, so we never saw another vehicle while there. The food was wonderful, carefully prepared and varied. Even the cold picnic breakfast we had while on our ride was good. The... More
