Porini Rhino is a place where you walk away feeling like a friend or family. David and the team is very concerned that you enjoy yourself and have a good experience. Their commitment to eco-friendly is unsurpassed. We enjoyed watching the animals at the watering hole and salt lick almost every afternoon while taking a break and reading and relaxing....

The wildlife was fantastic: ample lions, tons of elephants, and many rhinos. Rhinos are scarce at the other camps, but here I saw many of both species (the native black...

Superb authentic safari camp with a busy fascinating waterhole. Great staff and top quality Maasai guides. Thanks to Benjamin and Moses for making our stay so special. Thoughtful comfortable tents and first class food. Many visits to kenya over 30 years and one of our favourites. Hesbon and camp staff all great.

This was my first solo trip to Africa and booking through Gamewatchers to stay at a Porini camp, was a wise choice. There was never a time that I felt uncomfortable or unsafe and the group meals were an excellent opportunity to meet other people. From beginning to end, all the arrangements for transporting me from place to place went...
