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

We booked all our travels incl. Porini Amboseli camp through Steve from Gamewatchers safaris in the UK, which was all very well organized. We had an excellent guide for the game drives in Saruni (Andrew). And a visit to a surprisingly authentic Maasai village. The Selenkay Conversancy is well worth a visit for its birds, lions, elephant, as well as... More

What a great way to start our Kenya safari. We started by booking with Julie from Gamewatchers, who was so patient with all our concerns and always got back to my emails or phone calls promptly. So a big shout out to Julie! We are a family of 8 so I was very nervous- but fears were nonexistent the second... More

From arriving in Nairobi to leaving for Porini Lion Camp it was just super. The camp is warm and welcoming and our guides, Shadrack and Jonah were so knowledgable. The Food is excellent and served well, with attentive staff. The tents were more like Hotel rooms with soft walls. I read a few comments about the bucket showers and let's... More

I went to Amboseli to see Elephants; I saw loads at close range. I didn't expect the attentive hospitality and the efficient service I got from Tony as the manager and John as the dining host. Food was great showers were there when you needed them. OUr guides Daniel and Dennis were extremely knowledgable and fun. Our vista to the... More

We just spent a wonderful 11 nights in Kenya. 9 of those nights were in Porini camps. FIrst, we booked with Julie @ Gamewatchers. Her attention to detail was excellent. I am a traveler who... More

Wow. I can't imagine a better experience! Porini Amboseli was the first of three Porini camps we stayed at, and was an amazing introduction to the safari! We started off with a bang with a full day in the National Park, where we saw so much! Our driver Shadrack and our guide Daniel were full of so much knowledge and... More
