Porini Lion Camp

Porini Lion Camp has a unique and stunning setting within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, on the banks of the seasonal Ntiakatiak River and with permanent hippo pools nearby. This large area borders the Masai Mara National Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals. There is unsurpassed game-viewing within the conservancy due to its unspoiled natural state and Porini Lion Camp - with just ten tents - ensures guests have a genuine “away from it all” experience deep in the African bush.

Game drives are in specially-designed off-road (4x4) safari vehicles with expert / qualified safari guides to ensure the best possible game-viewing. Guests particularly enjoy the drives within the Conservancy where they experience the wilderness without being surrounded by other tourist vehicles as access to the conservancy is limited to the few guests of Porini Lion Camp and just four other camps.

Olare Motorogi is teeming with wildebeest during the migration period so the conservancy attracts several prides of lions which are often heard during the night.

Porini Lion Camp is run with an eco-friendly and socially-responsible ethos. The camp has minimum impact on the environment and uses eco-friendly fuel. The conservancy is owned by the local Maasai community and creates income and employment.

Porini Lion Camp has just ten guest tents, ensuring that visitors receive a personal welcome and gain a more intimate experience of the natural surroundings. Porini guests can escape the crowds and avoid the herds of tourists being ferried around in minibuses that are evident in other areas. The high-quality, spacious tents are tastefully furnished and each has solar-powered lighting, ensuite facilities (with hot shower and flush toilet) and a private veranda along the length of the tent, providing a secluded and private ‘space‘ for guests to relax and enjoy the beauty of this African wilderness.


Porini Lion Camp offers premium game drives in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles with driver-guide and spotter to explore Olare Motorogi Conservancy, night drives, escorted nature walks, bush breakfasts, sundowners plus one full day (with picnic lunch) in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
