I'm a serious amateur naturalist, have been to Africa several times, and was interested in far more than just seeing another lion. I don't know if your guides were well trained, well educated, or just plain smart. It was probably all of the above. They...More
When my coworker and our two teenage daughters first landed at Amoseli airstrip, we didn't really know what to expect. We enjoyed our drive through Amboseli National Park, asking the driver to stop at every bird or animal sighting, not realizing just how many we...More
The Porini Amboseli Camp was at the start of our trip and really got us into our Africa experience. We went with our teenage children and always felt we were in good hands. The service was impeccable and the tents were luxurious and welcoming. Camp...More

Most instances, the animals were incredibly close, at all the Porini Camps (Lion, Ambosolli and Mara) we visited. That was definitely one (of many) great positives of visiting the conservancies, vs the parks. In the conservancies we could drive off road in the jeep, and actually intermingle with the animals. Whereas, in the parks we were confined to staying only on the designated roads and gazing out across the terrain at the animals in a distant. Sorry, not a photo expert so can't help with what zoom to bring. I brought a point and shoot super zoom camera and (for my needs) took really amazing pics. All I can say is we were mere yards from elephants, lions, rhinos, monkeys, baboons, leopard and even had cheetah rub against our vehicle bumper.
