The Mara Porini Camp was the third in our "safari" and as with Amboselli and Pajeta excellent in terms of service and accommodation and David and his crew deserve the highest accolades for this and the food...Simon the chef was outstanding in the dises and tastes he presented. What was so impressive however was the game in the Conservancy was more profusive than in the adjacent Maasia Mara Game Park... was it just the time of the year or is it that the conservancies are working better than the parks??? Will have to return at another time and see whther the pattern prevails. Highlights included following some lion cubs at night; watching a lion drink prior to a kill within 500 metres of the camp; an early morning walk to see the carcass of the kill; the array of animals drinking at the water in the creek in front of the tent including bush buck and water buck... magnificent animals; watching a leopard at midday as it walked so close to our vehicle seeking .... who knows. A drive to the Mara river to see hippo and the crocodile .. a very full 2 days backed by excellent service and accommodation made for a wonderful and very personal 2 days. Cannot recommend this highly enough.
