This camp has the best of all worlds withj game right on the doorstep, literally in the case of the bush bucks and the vervet monkeys.
We stayed 4 nights and this gave us time to opt out of the odd game drive to relax and watch the wildlife - especially the birds around the camp.
Harry and the rest of the staff do all they can to ensure your stay is the best it can be. Our guide and spotter, Wilson and George were very good and enthusiastic, resulting in us seeing some fantastic sights, not the least of these being a cheetah stalking a gazelle for sometime before giving up because the prey wandered away.
A special mention for Julius the chef. He does wonders in the mess tent. I will copy his recipe for minted cucumber (once it gets to summer) and I recommend his pancakes for breakfast.
2 years ago we did all 4 porini camps this time we chose one for a longer stay coupled with a non porini camp (off beat Meru ). It was a great coupling and just as good as we remembered. Thanks to all
