All Porini camps are amazing re how they care for guests and a wonderful opportunity to see wildlife. All staff at Amboseli are warm and friendly; manager Tony very welcoming. Our guide Wilson, who enjoys photography, & driver Malita, went out of their way to position our vehicle for great lighting & backdrop. My photo of a giraffe with Mount...

True safari experience with excellent guides, fantastic food and terrific tented accommodations. The Masai are extremely hospitable and willing to share their culture. The chief extremely open and helpful. 5* Service in a small intimate environment. Definitely felt like I got my money's worth and then some. Our guides, Dennis and Charles treated us to a wonderful fun-filled adventure.

Amazing tented camp! The Porini Amboseli camp offered everything we needed, and more. The staff was fabulous. Tony the camp manager was professional. Our guides, Wilson and Daniel were walking encyclopedias that made our daily drives unforgettable and educational. We saw every kind of imaginable wildlife that Africa has to offer. The visit to the Masai village was very educational...

Everything about Porini Amboseli is just magical! Set in a forested area, but close to the National Park you see and hear birds, game, and animals 24 hours a day. While we were there, Elephants passed by just 100 metres from the camp, but dont worry, the experienced local Masai guides and staff, all of whom were wonderful, are there...

Another superb Porini experience ... Couldn't have been better! Service, staff, game drives, food and sundowners. If you are looking for an authentic immersion into nature and wildlife but don't dislike the comforts of a perfect Camp, try Porini. You won't regret it!

Porini Amboseli Camp was beyond our wildest hopes from the charter flight into the conservancy to the wonderful staff and guides to the up close and personal experience with the animals. Wilson and Melita were fun and great guides. I really think Wilson could speak animals sounds and both Melita and Wilson were as excited as I was when we...

Our Massai guides Wilson and Melita did a great job in locating animals and getting up close and personal with them: Lions, elephants, giraffes, etc. We also got an excellent view of the Wildebeests crossing the river. The rest of the Massai staff at the camp provided great customer service and were very friendly. This trip was an eye opener...

This was my fist trip to Porini Amboseli Camp. I have stayed at Porini Mara and Porini Lion in the Mara Conservancies more often than I can remember. It was a tough call not to go back there again as our family has had our best wildlife experiences at these camps. The flights to Amboseli leave too early in the...
