I can’t say enough good things about Gamewatchers, and our US advisor, Julie Roggow. We stayed at 2 of the Porini Camps managed by Gamewatchers, Porini Amboseli and Porini Rhino, each for 3 days. These are Eco-camps. All is powered by solar. They are small camps with 7-10 tents. Tent sounds primitive, but it’s not. They are huge canvas tents... More

We have nothing but great things to say about Porini Rhino Camp. Their commitment to conservation and working with the community is amazing. The staff was friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our honeymoon special. The food and rooms were perfect. They also made great vegetarian dishes for me. Our guides, Nicholas and Benjamin, taught... More

If you are looking to experience fabulous game drives and attentive staff while enjoying a camp conscientious of minimizing environmental impact then look no further. PRC offers comfortable large tents overlooking a waterhole that will have pumba, giraffes or any other manner of wildlife at any given time. Tents have front porches, full toilets, hot water when requested for showers,... More

We strongly recommend Ol Pejeta for those who want to game drive and see many animals. Porini camp is a very nice and tidy set of tents in the middle of the conservancy, very isolated. It is not luxurious at all, so it gives you the feeling of real wild camping but, of course, with some modern amenities. Regarding the... More

A fantastic camp which is situated in a beautiful surrounding. Comfortable tents overlooking a watering hole, which was a favourite for a lot of the local wildlife. But what blew us away was the knowledge, friendliness and professionalism of the team. They made us feel incredibly welcome and made for an incredible stay. We will definitely be visiting David and... More

I truly can't adequately summarize our experience in one paragraph, aside from saying, you should GO, and go now. There is not one single flaw with Rhino camp. We we thrilled to be picked up by Benjamin, our guide from last time who we had again this time. Nicholas accompanied him, and he was a fountain of knowledge and it... More

It's a traditional and excellent tented safari experience - warm water bottles in the beds, hot showers, skilled guides and drivers, and surprisingly good food. But what sets it apart are the group dinners and campfires which let you make new friends, and the warms and affability of the staff who are always keen to engage you in conversation. I'm... More

My husband and I planned a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Africa, but it has been so fabulous that we hope to return with family and friends. Friends recommended Gamewatchers Safaris because they operate first-class full-service safaris at a reasonable cost. Gamewatchers operates Porini (“in the wild” in Swahili) Camps where we stayed for eight nights. The Gamewatchers safari experience is superb... More

The camp itself is well off the beaten track and self driving yourself it was a little difficult to find,although the directions were precise a couple of signs to say Porini Rhino camp would have been better,especially on the 'no through road' we did make a couple of errors there. On arriving we were met by David and his crew... More

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
