- Best wilderness option
- Inclusive Basis
- 6 tents
- Privately owned conservancy
Porini Mara Camp is arguably the best wilderness option in the area, with just 6 tents situated on a privately-owned conservancy, Ol Kinyei, which is run in partnership with the local Masai community. The conservancy is a stunning wilderness with rivers, forest, open grasslands and views over the Masai Mara. The Porini Camps are run on an inclusive basis, with meals and drinks (including house wines and beer), night game drives, bush walks and sundowners all included. Because of its location, it is best visited in tandem with a stay at Porini Mara Lion Camp.
Children aged 8 years and above are welcome. There is a designated, H-shaped, family tent located about 20 metres away from the main areas. This is a spacious unit, with each ‘wing’ measuring 64 square metres, and the lounge 16 square metres. The tent comprises two rooms with a very comfy lounge in-between. Each of the two rooms has a king size bed and a single bed, ensuite facilities including hot shower and flush toilet, and a private veranda. The unit is perfect for families or groups travelling together and comes at the same price per person as the other tents.
We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.
Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!
We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.
Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.

The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!
