Outstanding wildlife at an excellent safari camp
Our best wildlfe spotting, especially the large cats (lion, cheetah and leopard), though there was plenty of other wildlife. The camp feels part of the landscape with nothing between the tents and the savannah - but well patrolled and and never felt unsafe. Excellent guide/driver - their ability to spot things was extraordinary.
The Lion Camp never disappoints.
This was aur third stay at the Porini Lion Camp and it was as good as ever - comfortably furnished tent, good food and excellent guiding from John and Bill. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. This is the best place for seeing big cats - especially lions and leopards - we were lucky to see Fig and her daughter Furaha on separate occasions. The Hammerkop lion pride gave us an entertaining evening with high jinx in a tree, and other highlights included a very young baby giraffe, two cheetahs, elephants including a small baby, and a great variety of birds. A wonderful stay.
Superb wildlife sightings and comfortable surroundings
We spent 2 nights at Lion camp and had amazing wildlife sightings. The Leopard and lion pride sightings were a particular highlight. The staff looked after us really well and the food was tasty. We loved having a picnic breakfast out in the conservancy each morning and sundowners each evening. Being out taking in the conservancy with wildlife roaming nearby was an amazing experience. Highly recommend the whole experience.
I hadn't heard about the conservancies bordering Maasai Mara national reserve until I started researching but I am SO GLAD that I chose to stay at Porini Lion. OK, so it isn't in the reserve but the conservancy has been established in full cooperation with local communities and as a result, the wildlife has flooded back, we get great sarari experiences and the local maasai communities benefit from improved incomes. The other vehicles you see is a fraction of the number you get in the reserve and you we had the opportunity to see everything from buffalo, topi and small antelopes to lions, hyenas etc. The guides and camp staff were absolutely great and could not have done more to give us a great experience. The camp itself is simple and straightforward - certainly not a swanky lodge - and has a very low environmental impact. It is off grid, with no permanent structures but it is incredibly comfortable, spotless clean and well maintained and blends into its environment really well. I loved it.
An excellent visit.
The Camp and its location were superb. Guides, drivers, manager and all the staff were excellent in all respects - nothing was too much trouble and we were welcomed with genuine warmth. Accomodation was faultless for a camp. Food was extremely well cooked, had variety and was tasty. A better experience would be hard to achieve.
