After spending 3 days at the Porini Rhino camp we arrived at the lion camp. Alfred the camp manager welcomed us and we were off on our first days safari. All I can say is what an experience. So many fab animals and so much to see. Food was fantastic, guides lovely and I will definitely come back.

We visited Porini Lion Camp with our children and in-laws and loved the game drives, we saw pretty much everything you could imagine and never felt rushed. The daily bush breakfasts were a special treat, especially for the kids who loved the pancakes with golden syrup. The best part was that unlike many other camps which try to charge you... More

Thank you for your review and I’m very glad that you loved the game drives and saw so much wildlife. It’s good to hear how much you liked the bush breakfasts and that you were happy to have all the activities included in the price at no extra charge. However I’m sorry that you found the books, magazines and games... More

Just perfect. The Porini Lion camp offered it all. One morning we woke listening to a nearby lion, in the evening we went to sleep listening to nearby hippos in the creek, monkeys playing in the trees in front of our tent, and on our last day, elephants trumpeting just across the creek. The staff was fabulous. Alfred the camp... More

When we arrived at Olare Motorogi Conservancy, our driver rushed us off in the landrover and then I realised he was going to chase the animals off the strip so that the plane could take off again. Porini Lion Camp was wonderful. At night I heard a lion roar, so close it must have been very near our tent and... More

I am not normally so gushing, but can only say that this facility is excellent and superb in every way. The camp is neat, clean and welcoming, the food and drink ( included in the price) is wholesome and plentiful, the staff are absolutely charming and helpful, and the game drives with incredibly knowledgeable local guides was second to none...

I had been concerned that we would not see much wildlife, particularly as we visited just before the start of the rainy season ... how wrong I was. From the moment we were collected from the air strip we were thrilled to see the teeming savannas with herds of zebra and gazelle. I could not believe it when we saw... More

All Porini camps run by Gamewatchers are fantastic. I am encouraging friends and family to take advantage of this opportunity for a trip of a lifetime. The food is fabulous, the wildlife viewing far exceeded my dreams and the tents are comfortable. Flying from one camp to the next is fun, saves time and avoids gruelling, lengthy drives.

From start to finish, my experience at Porini Lion camp was unforgettable. I appreciated the emphasis and focus that the company and camp puts on eco tourism and working with the local community. I believe that this provides an authentic experience and allows guests to learn not only about animals but to see first hand the benefits of conservation and... More

The Porini Lion camp staff were great. The guides were the best we experienced in Africa. True safari experience with Masai guides from the local area. Camp was more rustic than some of the high-end camps, but the animal experience was unparalleled. Truly able to get within "purring distance" of all the big cats.

As with the whole Porini experience the lion camp was great. Staff were awesome and the camp fantastic, with lots of animals in the vicinity. Game drives a little less exclusive than at Mara as there are more camps in the conservancy.
