With a seemingly endless choice of locations, camps, accommodation, transport options and activities, planning a safari can be a daunting task. So to help you make informed decisions, here are 10 good reasons why you should choose Porini Safari Camps for your next African adventure…

NB: There are many other reasons, such as our consistently high Tripadvisor ratings, World Travel Awards, Eco-Warrior Gold ratings, competitive pricing and three decades of experience creating safaris that also benefit wildlife , the environment and local communities. as guests.. but here are just 10 reasons to start with:

1. Exceptional wildlife observation in our private reserves

Our reserves are teeming with wildlife all year round. Truly wild animals roam freely in our reserves, attracted by the tranquil, protected habitat, far from the crowds of tourist minibuses in adjacent national parks.

Guests of our Porini Safari Camps are treated to spectacular sightings in and around our reserves, and our safari guides show visitors the varied flora and fauna on daily game drives and guided walks.

Our visitors capture beautiful wildlife photos. Guest Matthew Grodzins has stayed at our Porini camps in Amboseli, Ol Pejeta and the Masai Mara and he has kindly shared these stunning images.

More photos of our guests can be seen in the Safari Diary section of our website.

2. Discover different places in one trip by combining two or more Porini camps

To really make the most of your time in Kenya, you can easily combine stays at two or more of our Porini camps. Each camp is located in its own wildlife reserve, surrounded by nature, with the opportunity to observe a wide range of Africa’s iconic animals. But the different topography and habitat in each area gives a different feel and game viewing experience.

Porini Amboseli Camp is renowned for its good numbers of elephants, the Mara reserves are home to the highest density of wild lions in Africa and Porini Rhino Camp is located in a world-famous rhino sanctuary where visitors can see the the world’s last two northern white rhinos as well as the rest of the Big Five.

The latest addition to our Porini Camps collection is Rhino River Camp, set in 80 acres of private wilderness, just on the edge of Meru National Park – a magnificent wilderness that is home to all of the Big Five and more. Meru is famous for being the home of George and Joy Adamson and Elsa the lioness from the book and film ‘Born Free’.

A great combination is our Meru & Mara Safari which spends 3 nights at Rhino River Camp before flying to the Masai Mara for a further 3 nights at Porini Mara Camp.

3. Close encounters with wildlife in our photo cache

Guests at Porini Rhino Camp in Ol Pejeta Conservation took advantage of the new photo blind which was carefully placed to enhance wildlife viewing at the waterhole directly in front of the camp.

The waterhole offers visitors the opportunity to observe the wild animals that come for a drink – and the hide allows visitors to get up close (safely!) with the animals who can roam freely around the camp.

Spending time in a hide can, with a little patience, lead to some incredible sightings, as our regular guest Matt Caldwell discovered during his recent visit.

4. Family tents now at four Porini camps – ideal for groups

Our Porini camps in Amboseli (Selenkay Conservancy), Ol Pejeta Conservancy and our two Masai Mara camps now have large family tents.

The family tents are made up of two twin/double tents each having their own separate bathroom, with an additional lounge area between them, providing a large private space ideal for any family or group traveling together. They are simply priced as two tents, but have the advantage of extra space.

Family tents are proving popular but are subject to availability at the time of booking – so book early to secure them!

5. Personalized photographic vehicle for safaris

Photography enthusiasts can now embark on a safari in our new, specially equipped photography vehicle at Porini Lion Camp.

This specially adapted Landrover has lowered window openings to maximize photography opportunities, and the center row of seats has been removed, allowing photographers more space to move to the most advantageous positions.

Our regular guests Olli Teirila and Alison Buttigieg captured this video from the vehicle during their recent safari in the Masai Mara while visiting Porini Camps:

6. Guided walks with Maasai warriors

Who better to guide you on your African safari than the Maasai people, whose presence has helped shape Kenya’s history for centuries?

Some of our safari guides and observers are descended from generations of Maasai warriors who called the savannah plains of East Africa home, close to Africa’s most important game reserves.

Walk with them through the vast nature reserves and discover the secrets of the savannah without crowds of visitors and noisy vehicles interrupting your journey.

A guided safari walk allows you to get up close to the flora and fauna often missed when in a vehicle. Search for “Africa’s Little 5,” learn how to track the footprints of big cats and their prey. You can even learn to throw a spear!

************************************************** **********

7. Breakfast in the bush

A defining moment of any good African safari is eating breakfast in the bush – but not all lodges and safari camps can offer it.

Each of the Porini camps includes this experience. As a Porini guest, you’ll wake up at dawn to hot coffee or tea and cookies served in your tent, then head out for a fun-filled morning of game viewing while the wildlife is most active . After enjoying the animal activities of the morning, you will be treated to a full picnic breakfast in the bush.

What better way to enjoy your breakfast than “Out of Africa” style, immersed in nature and with a view of the African plains?

8. Discover an authentic Maasai village

There is something extraordinary and powerful about visiting the boma or Maasai village. Perhaps it is the warm and joyful welcome of children, young people and all members of the family in their colorful costumes. Perhaps it is the high-pitched singing of the women or the energetic, jumping dance of the agile young men.

Either way, the visit will be a memory that will stick with you and challenge your perceptions. This is a must-see on your safari in Kenya.

From Porini Amboseli Camp, Maasai warriors will accompany you on a guided walk to their village where you will be welcomed and invited to learn about the Maasai culture, traditions and way of life.
