          We are scheduling a safari at three porini camps for next June (6/14 - 6/30) and I've been told we may be a little early to see the migration. Has anyone been there during those dates and been able to see any of the migrating animals during your trip? Thanks.

          Hello, we are travelling to Kenya in September and are most likely staying at Porini Bush Camp. Is this close to the river / or has river views as Porini Mara? I cannot seem to find any reviews on Porini Bush, so unsure as to how it compares. Any help in comparing the 2 would be much appreciated. Thanks!
