This was my 2nd stay at Porini Lion Camp having visited in Oct 08. The welcome received on arrival was amazing. Many staff remembered us from last year and could not do enough for us. My 10 year old daughter was the centre of attention with the staff at Porini Lion Camp and they really looked after her. I love this camp because it is set in a conservancy where you can have game drives without coming across another vehicle hence you get great photographs and the guides take you really close to the animals. Currently Porini Lion Camp has lots of animals in the conservancy and we saw many Lion, Cheetah, a Leopard, a large group of Wildebeest to name but a few. We had the same driver and spotter who were with us in Oct 08 and this made the visit quite special. The Camp Manager ensured that both myself and my daughter enjoyed every day we stayed. We timed our visit with the Wildebeest Migration and were not disappointed. We got to see the most fantastic river crossing - truly memorable. I cannot thank the staff who work at Porini Lion Camp enough as they go out of their way to make you stay enjoyable. The whole experience you gain from staying in an eco- friendly tented camp where the animals are free to come and go and yes, you do get them at night, hippo, buffalo and elephants outside our tent, is magical. I love Porini Lion Camp and will be back for my 3rd stay soon.
