Found nearby the seasonal Ntiakatiak River, home to hippo pools and only a short distance from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Porini Lion Camp is a small and exclusive property, ideal for guests hoping for an authentic safari experience. The camp is located in the 20,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy, home to a strong diversity of wildlife, including an abundance of big cats. Conservation and giving back to the local community are focal points for the lodge, with no permanent structures, a cap on the number of tourists visiting and the local Maasai directly benefiting from all income received in camp.
The intimate camp holds only 10 tents, all of which possess lighting by solar power. With plenty of room to move, the tents are spacious and comfortable, with pleasant furnishings and a quaint veranda. The veranda runs the length of the tent and act as a great place to relax in-between game drives and activities. All tents include en-suite bathrooms, which provide guests with hot showers and flush toilets. The main area comprises a lounge and dining area, where the camp's tasty meals are served up.
Perfect for guests with strong views on conservation, the camp readily coheres to such ideals; staff are Maasai and with guides expert guides game drives are well delivered and non-intrusive to the wildlife.
Daily scheduled flights from Nairobi to Ol Kiombo airstrip. It is then around a 30 minute drive to camp.
Walking safaris, game drive and cultural interaction.
