3 Days in Lion Camp
WOW. Simply wonderful. The staff is spectacular. I had hopes of what I might see and they were exceeded. We saw the same lion cubs (7) all three days and throw in cheetahs, leopards and other Mara wildlife. As this is a conservatory they know all of the cats on the property adding history and insight into what you are seeing and experiencing. Somehow each day brought a new great experience from walks with the staff to the wildlife trips. Hearing and seeing animals from the camp and my tent.
Wonderful Masai welcome, lots of animals
This place is very special. The porini camp is run by the Masai and because of this you get a truly authentic experience. The guides are very, very good and their knowledge of the area is outstanding. We saw so many animals, that to the point our truck got known as the Leopard Whisperers! We also really enjoyed bush breakfast by the hippo pool! The camp is very well thought out and good on small details. I never realise how much I needed a hot water bottle in our bed by the end of the day! I have to say the food was really good too! Special thanks to Victor, Daniel, John and Julius
We spent 3 nights at Porini Lion Camp in December and had the most amazing time. Staff were exceptionally friendly and warm, guide was super knowledgeable, game viewing was 1st class - (3 leopard sitings, cheetah, lion, elephants with babies galore!) - and we cant wait to come back. Thank you Porini Lion!
My wife and I were lucky enough to stay here for 4 nights at the end of November 2019 and where simply blown away by the amount of game we saw, Tito and cub, Selenkay and cubs (although I believe one has now since died) and a pregnant Figlet along with 3 prides of Lions as well as all the other wonderful game to be seen here in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. The camp was excellent with a great arangement of all safari guests eating together on 2 large tables which facilitated us meeting some fantastic people (Anne and Kevin, Chris and Angela, Ollie and Alison, Katy and Ryan etc ) being served excellent food by Albert, James and Nicolas prepared by 2 awesome chef's. Tents where comfortable and well presented. We stayed in tent 7 but I really dont think it mattered which tent you had. Our guide and spotter (Bill and Little John) were simply excellent! This was our 4th Safari and without doubt the best yet!! We will be back here god willing!!
Great team, fantastic location!
Stayed at Porini Lion Camp for a couple of days and had a great experience! From the moment team meets you at the arrival in their traditional clothes and beads jewelry to the day they genuinely say goodbyes dropping you at the airport – all of them definitely added a special feel to the whole trip. All are very attentive and accommodating, extremely knowledgeable and well mannered. Grounds are well maintained, and the best part - located close to the river, which provided us with special sounds effects of the hippos walking around the tents some nights. Animal world is incredibly beautiful – we saw all but one of the big 5, very rich birdlife. Overall amazing experience – highly recommend this place!
