May I first start by thanking all the team at Gamewatchers and the Porini staff for an absolutely incredible holiday. I can only praise the the level of service, organisation, accommodation and information provided from start to finish! I had enquired about safaris with several companies but chose Gamewatchers and Porini specifically for the eco friendly ethos and the fantastic...

I stayed at Porini Lion camp for two nights at the end of my trip to Kenya and thoroughly enjoyed it. The camp location is beautiful by the river and in the private Conservancy away from the busy Maasai Mara National Reserve. I saw so many animals including lots of lion sitings. One day we saw a pride of lions...

We stayed 3 nights at Porini Lion Camp which was the first stop on our trip. We were surrounded by amazing wildlife. The staff were friendly and attentive and made sure there was nothing we needed. The proximity of the camp to all the animals meant we didn't have to go far to see amazing sights. The food was lovely...

Very good camp. You could hear the hippos during the night and look att birds and baboons during the day. The food was very good and the crew so nice and helpful. The safariguids was wonderful. I miss the boys.

We stayed 2 nights at the Porini Lion camp as the last stop on our 2 week safari. You can see the animals from the tents and there were hippos feeding right outside the tent at night. The food was excellent and the effort the staff put in was fantastic. Since it was our honeymoon they did a dance for...

We stayed 2 nights at Porini Lion Camp in early September. The tents were spacious and well furnished. Staff and food were awesome. Baboons visited camp during the day and we had a hippo right outside our tent eating throughout the night. In our short stay at Porini Lion Camp, we took wonderful pictures of a leopard, a cheetah, elephants,...

This camp is called Porini Lion for a very good reason. You will see lions and lots of them doing amazing things. The highlight of our trip was the hour+ that we spent watching a group of half a dozen lion cubs romp and play (and annoy their mothers). They are unbelievably cute! Lion camp is very well run, tents...

I always say this, and I will say it again. Exceptional experiences are defined by exceptional customer service and this is especially true for a safari camp where all the lodges/camps have access to the same natural environment. In this regard, Porini was just superb! Let me explain.. We stayed in Porini for 4 days and 4 nights. We were...
