Porini Lion Camp
The Porini Lion Camp is situated in the Olare Orok Conservancy only a few kilometres from the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The Ol Kiombo airstrip used by the daily scheduled flights to the Mara from Nairobi is a 25-minute drive from camp.
The eco-friendly camp has no permanent construction and is situated along the Ntiakatiak River, a seasonal river with permanent hippo pools near camp. With 10 guest tents the camp is very exclusive and gives you a real 'in the bush' experience. The tents (below) are very spacious and have private verandahs along the length of the tent, providing a secluded and private space for you to relax and enjoy the beauty of this African wilderness. Each tent has an ensuite bathroom with flush toilet and hot shower. Food is excellent with freshly baked bread and high quality meals prepared by the camp Chef.
Qualified safari guides enhance the experience by educating the guests about the flora, fauna and people of the surrounding areas. Guests are taken on day and night game drives in custom built open-sided 4x4 vehicles. In the evening they are taken to a scenic spot, to enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down. A night game drive is taken on the way back to camp, giving guests the opportunity to see many of the elusive nocturnal animals. Maasai warriors escort guests on a walk in the conservancy, where you can learn about how the various indigenous animals and plants are used by the community and how their way of life is intertwined with their surroundings.
