The Porini Lioin Camp is located in a beautiful private conservancy with some of the most dense populations of lions prides. Part of the excitement is the fact that the tents and the camp are literally in the open, and not barricaded from the elements...More

Everything - the camp, people, wildlife - were wonderful. It was an intimate experience, no crowds of vehicles, no big tour groups. Just a few of us— at most there were 10 people in camp. In the conservancy, we were able to get very close...More

Weather was great. No bugs at all. I was actually shocked. Took multiple brands of repellent and never touched any of them. Cool in the AM, but occasionally got very warm in the afternoon, but cool again by Sundowner time.
