The place really cares for the environment and are helping the local community benefit from tourism in the best possible way. The tents are wery well kept and eventhough it has all the necessary facilities like a... More

The 3rd of our 4 Porini camps and the one in which I turned 50. A great camp all round. Staff are fabulous and all the things available as already mentiond in other reviews of Porini camps. A birthday cake and all the staff singing and dancing in the mess tent made it a memorable birthday as did the ballon... More

Mara is a very pretty camp. David, the Manager, is very hospitable and made us feel most welcome. Simon the Hippo did not appear but I think I heard him! Jimmy our guide, was excellent. We saw lions resting up after a recent kill and a mother cheetah and her family. When we arrived at the Porini Lion camp we... More

We had 3 nights at Porini Mara, the first 2 of which were (by coincidence) exclusive to our family group of seven, including boys aged 8 and 14. I would echo the other reviews here. The location, service, expertise, standards and hospitality were simply astounding. David and his team could not have been more helpful or delivered a better experience.... More

We stayed here for 1 night in late 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The safari experience in the conservancy and the Masai Mara was amazing. The massive advantage of the conservancy is the lack of other camps in the area meaning you have more freedom (as opposed to the Masai Mara when it can occasionally, despite it's size, feel slightly...

This was my fourth trip to this camp. The fact that I keep coming back for more speaks for itself. I safari regularly and the conservancy experience is unbeatable. No mini bus circus around the game. This camp is the only camp in the conservancy. The advantages for the eco tourist are many - First this is a low impact... More

Our stay at Porini camp was just magical. My boyfriend and I arrived having been laid low with colds and left relaxed and well rested, even after the relatively busy safari schedule. We were greeted by David, the camp manager, who just could not do enough for us, even finding hot lemon and cold remedies for my boyfriend. On the... More

Not much to add to the other wonderful reviews of this magical camp. Stayed here for three nights after visiting Porini Amboseli camp (also fabulous) and didn't want to leave. For much of the visit we were the only ones in the camp and we were so well taken care of. I only made it to two of the Porini... More
