Our stay was incredible. The camp is in a conservancy which benefits the local Masai people. The wildlife was abundant and our guides knew exactly where to go. Our tents were spacious and had everything we needed. Jimmy and his staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the best. The food was great and we loved the...

We stayed in Porini Camp for two nights in June. The staff were so professional and attentive. Walking in the mara with game rangers and guides really was an added bonus. We saw so much and the start of the migration too. White towels, crisp linen and hot water in the tents! Plus good food! What more could you ask...

A number of us decided to yet again visit Porini - and had yet again a fabulous time. Plenty of game incl. the single, largest herd of Eland I've seen for years, pride of lions feasting on a warthog, families of gorgeous and charming elephants, spectacular cheetah, beautiful topis, numerous wildebeest and zebras preparing for migration, the always fascinating giraffes...

As all other reviews have said you cannot fault Game Watchers for their organisation and provision of a perfect safari experience. Every step of our trip was organised perfectly and we thoroughly enjoyed our drive from Lion camp to Mara Camp. When we left the lion camp I was certain that no other experience could rival it but I was...

We visited the porini mara camp for 3 nights in march and had a fantastic time. We saw 2 cheetah moms with cubs who both made kills, the mini migration from the Loita plains, lots of calves all was good. We booked directly through game watchers and they took care of every little detail. Nothing was too much trouble including...

We stayed here in January and absolutely loved it. Our guides Bill and Tipa were excellent, very knowledgable and found us so much wild life - it is in abundance here! The Porini Mara Camp is the only camp in Ol Kinyei Conservancy, if you do see another vehicle it will be a Gamewatchers one! Better still is we had...

What a great place. Tents were great, and exactly as promised on the website. Nothing too much trouble for the staff, especially Jimmy and knowledgeable guides. They made everything so easy and then adapted fantastically when one of the group fell ill. Could not have asked for a better experience.

You know how they say to never repeat something that was amazing because the odds that it will live up to your first experience are almost nil? NOT HERE! This was our third visit to Porini Mara, and our third truly amazing experience. Big hugs from Wilson and Marima, our guides for the third time were just the beginning. This...
