We had an amazing time at Porini Lion Camp for our first ever safari. Our guide and spotter were excellent and helped us to see as many different animals as we could. Even the elusive Leopard as well as a cheetah kill! The accommodations were...More
We had a great overall stay. Saw so many animals! lots of lions, cheetah and babies, hyena, leopord, you name it we saw it. there was a group of monkeys who hung out in and around the camp, they were very cute. Guides were great,...More
It was here that we had our best sightings among the 3 camps we stayed in Kenya - plenty of lions (as the name says), " the five brothers" (the unique phenomenon of 5 cheetahs from 2 different families forming a group & moving together),...More
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
We have been visiting game parks for quite a few years but nothing has come close to this amazing conservancy and camp.
Everything about this camp went way beyond expectations, the incredible wildlife, the staff and management and the exceptional pride and care they showed,...More

How fortunate for you. We generally pay extra for this option as it gives you a whole extra morning to enjoy the wildlife and scenery. The short answer is YES but it really depends upon how busy the camp is and whether they have new travellers due to enter your tent or not for that night. Under normal circumstances, IF they do not have anyone coming into your tent then they will allow you to leave all your stuff in the tent. You will go out for a game drive in the normal manner early in the morning. You will be back in time for lunch, have lunch and then probably go to the tent and have a shower etc before being transported to the airstrip for your plane's arrival.
If however they need your tent for the next guests, then they will definitely have somewhere for you to put your bags safely whilst you go out for a nice long game drive. Every thing else will be as above but they may not have a tent to let you shower before getting on the plane. I am sure though that they will find somewhere suitable if you need to change your clothes etc. The camp staff are most accommodating really.
Hope that helps,

We drove from Nairobi to Mara Siria camp first (about 5 or 6 hours, if I remember right). From Nairobi to Porini Lion Camp is proabably about the same. We flew back to save time. About 50-60 minutes via Safarilink small... More
We drove from Nairobi to Mara Siria camp first (about 5 or 6 hours, if I remember right). From Nairobi to Porini Lion Camp is proabably about the same. We flew back to save time. About 50-60 minutes via Safarilink small plane. Many people want to go there during the time of the wildebeest migration, but there are trade-offs with many more tourists at that time. We were there shortly after the migration (November) and there were relatively few tourists and we therefore got great views of the wildlife without many other vehicles competing for viewing angles.
