Porini Lion Camp
The award-winning, eco-friendly Porini Lion Camp offers day and night game drives within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy and guided walks with Masai Warriors in a pristine and exclusive 33,000-acre wilderness set aside for wildlife conservation and low-impact tourism. The camp is situated on the banks of the seasonal Ntiakatiak River bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals including the Mara’s renowned lions.
There is excellent game-viewing within the conservancy due to its unspoiled natural state and with just ten tents you have a genuine “away from it all” experience deep in the African bush. The high-quality, spacious tents are tastefully furnished and each has solar-powered lighting, ensuite facilities (with hot shower and flush toilet) and a private veranda.
The accommodation is fully inclusive of all meals, drinks (beer, wine, sodas, gin & tonics and mineral water) as well as all activities (including day and night game drives, escorted walks and sundowners). Game drives (shared) are in specially-designed off-road (4×4) safari vehicles with expert / qualified safari guides to ensure the best possible game-viewing. You can get enhanced game drives within the Conservancy where you experience the wilderness without being surrounded by other tourist vehicles.
This is a good base from which to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration, and there is also the opportunity to enjoy a hot air balloon safari.
Probably the world’s most famous game park has undergone substantial development and is for good reason one of the most desirable places on earth to see the iconic wildlife. During the Great Migration, it’s the best natural show on earth, a true spectacle. Take land game drives or a balloon ride above the plains.
