Located deep in the Ol Pejeta Conservation area the camp is everything one would expect and a lot more. Excellent service from David and his team where nothing as too much trouble. Our driver and spotter, Daniel and Benjamin are top notch with the most amazing eyesight!! The game drives were excellent and we saw everything we wanted to see.... More

Greetings, Started our honeymoom there and I do not know how we ended up as the only guests during our stay but we had no complaints whatsoever - we had the entire place to ourselves. We were treated as royalty :-) with all attention given to us. Everything was as advertised and as a follow up from NTC, we really... More

Stayed last June. This camp is fantastic in every way. Food, tents, cleanliness, and most of all, staff, headed by David, who runs a warm, wonderful, but tight ship. I stayed at another Porini camp and while it was great too, it lacked the feel of hands-on absolutely highest standards supervision that is evident at Rhino Camp. I can't add... More

Wonderful service! David the camp manager was especially gracious! We loved our evening chats over the campfire. We had a fantastic time at the Rhino camp and really enjoyed getting to experience the conservancy without seeing lots of other vehicles. We has multiple sittings of white rhinos, elephants, and lots of buffalo but the highlight was the wild dogs at... More

We made our first trip to Porini Rhino Camp in September 2013. We loved it so much that we returned in February 2015 and were not disappointed in our decision. Not only did we have multiple rhino sightings but we were also able to spend time with cheetahs, lions and a beautiful leopard (photo attached). Our guides, Benjamin and Daniel,... More

Nothing short of fantastic. When it comes to service and understanding and then providing your guests with what they need David and his team fall nothing short of perfect. We traveled as a group of 7 adults and kids. The game drives were excellent, the wild life was abundant and we came to see Rhino and were not disappointed. On... More

I am fortunate enough to have travelled all over Africa and my stay in Porini Rhino camp rates as one of the most memorable. We went in February, a family of four with friends. We couldn't have asked any more from the amazing Rhino Camp, the friendly and knowledgeable staff or the animals themselves. We saw too much wildlife to... More

We decided on a safari to celebrate 40 years together - our very first. Porini rhino camp could not have been a better introduction. Located in a quiet valley in the west of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, we had lots of p[rime game viewing to ourselves. Our 2 guides, Benjamin and Michael, were superb, finding us black and white rhinos,... More

In mid-January I visited Porini Rhino and Porina Mara camps. Porini is a very well run organization with a focus on sustainability. Porini Rhino is in the Ol Pejeta conservancy near Mount Kenya. The landscape reminded me a lot of western Colorado where I live (it is very different from the green, lush conservancies near Masai Mara). Expect the morning... More

Absolutely fantastic trip in every way. We stayed 2 nights at Rhino Camp and 3 nights at Lion Camp, which was the perfect combination of both landscape and wildlife. The Maasai guides were extraordinarily knowledgeable, friendly and great drivers. We saw the Big 5 in the first 24 hours and had incredible wildlife viewing throughout the trip, including both white... More
