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

I have just returned from a fabulous week in Kenya visiting both Porini Rhino camp and Porini Mara Camp. I had visited both these camps several years ago and I had wondered if they would live up to my very good memories of them. I was not disappointed! The tent itself ('room' 4) was very clean, comfortable and spacious. It... More

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
