Location: Porini Lion Camp is in the 20,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy bordering the Masai Mara, just 30 minutes from the Talek Gate. The camp is on the banks of the seasonal Ntiakatiak River and permanent hippo pools. The Old Kiombo airstrip is a 25-minute drive from the camp.

Rooms: There are 10 guest tents, very spacious with a double and single bed and en-suite facilities including a shower and flush toilet. Hot water is available on request. Each tent has a large, secluded veranda. There is also a family unit made up of 2 rooms separated by a shared lounge. Each bedroom has a king-size and a single bed.

Activities: The camp offers morning and evening game drives in the conservancy. Full day game drives in Masai Mara National Reserve are also available. Night drives are also possible. The vehicles have electric points where you can charge your camera or phone. You can go on a guided walk with a Masai and enjoy picnic lunches and sundowners in scenic locations. Hot air balloon rides can be arranged.

Facilities: Meals are served in the mess tent and are convivial occasions. Fresh bread is baked each day. Dinner is a 3-course meal served with wine. You can relax in the bar/lounge.

Dining: Meals are taken communally.

Children: Children aged 8 years and older are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is no internet access.

Responsible travel: Local Maasai community members own the Olare Motorogi Conservancy and are receiving a direct benefit from wildlife, seeing wildlife as a valuable resource that belongs to them. They earn a direct income from each guest in the conservancy and also much-needed employment for their members.

Other than the head chef, camp manager and head guide all the other camp staff are from the surrounding communities. Lion Camp is run and maintained with the conservation of the environment at the forefront. The numbers of tourist visitors in the conservancy are being limited to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimise the impact on the environment. During their stay, our guests have various opportunities to learn about the local Maasai people and how the Olare Motorogi Conservancy and Porini Lion Camp work together.

Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Totally an eco-friendly establishment situated in a very relaxing location. The tents were spacious and well equipped with flush toilets and hot water provided for showers. The service provided by the staff was very attentive, but not over obtrusive and one could relax easily after the game drives. The food was excellent and well prepared and presented.
