The Porini Lion Camp property is quite special. Each game drive has both a driver and a spotter, the meals and sundowners are exceptionally planned and presented. The special small touches make the whole stay really exceptional - from the hot water bottles to warm your feet in the beds, to the coffee on your porch in the morning, to the fires at sunset, you are well taken care of in a beautiful place.
You won't believe that these are tents - that's how amazing they are, with full bathrooms and flushing toilets and the whole camp built to leave not the whisper of a footprint if they wanted to move it.
The Maasai Mara itself is a perfect place - especially for a first-time safari. You will see most of the big 5, all the Serengeti plains animals, and in a great reserve. Both Maasai Mara and Sarengeti are super-popular, though, so do expect to see and hear many many other safari vehicles and people. Occasionally, the number of vehicles and people far outnumber the game being observed, which can feel a bit like being an unwelcome paparazzo.
