The third Porini camp on our safari and by far the most busy. We saw an amazing array of wildlife and were lucky to spend our sundowner with a pride of lions. There were many special moments such as the giraffes at sunset and the leopard eating her kill in the conservancy. The conservancy was very peaceful and we only saw one other Gamewatchers jeep most of the time.
The tent was lovely, very clean and spacious. We witnessed baboons walking by our tent and watched them walk across the river bed. Thanks to our guide, Jared and driver, Ketari - they managed to get us to the best locations for game viewing and were responsive when we asked them anything.
The camp fire was pleasant, it's always nice to speak to the other guests over drinks and snacks.
We really appreciated the cake and champagne on the eve of our departure, a really nice touch. We were sad to leave but enjoyed every minute of our honeymoon experience at Porini.
If you are looking for a memorable safari experience with excellent wildlife viewing, Porini is the place to go.
