Amazing tented camp! The Porini Amboseli camp offered everything we needed, and more. The staff was fabulous. Tony the camp manager was professional. Our guides, Wilson and Daniel were walking encyclopedias that made our daily drives unforgettable and educational. We saw every kind of imaginable...更多
Everything about Porini Amboseli is just magical! Set in a forested area, but close to the National Park you see and hear birds, game, and animals 24 hours a day. While we were there, Elephants passed by just 100 metres from the camp, but dont...更多
Another superb Porini experience ... Couldn't have been better! Service, staff, game drives, food and sundowners. If you are looking for an authentic immersion into nature and wildlife but don't dislike the comforts of a perfect Camp, try Porini. You won't regret it!
Photographers...relating specifically to the Porini camps (and game drives)...how close were you to the animals on game drives? Did you bring 200mm, 300mm, 400mm, 600mm lenses? I have little interest in birds and just trying to figure out how long a lens to bring, everyone says "as long as possible" but renting a 70-200 2.8 is MUCH more affordable than a 200-400 F4 and much much lighter...

Most instances, the animals were incredibly close, at all the Porini Camps (Lion, Ambosolli and Mara) we visited. That was definitely one (of many) great positives of visiting the conservancies, vs the parks. In the conservancies we could drive off road in the jeep, and actually intermingle with the animals. Whereas, in the parks we were confined to staying only on the designated roads and gazing out across the terrain at the animals in a distant. Sorry, not a photo expert so can't help with what zoom to bring. I brought a point and shoot super zoom camera and (for my needs) took really amazing pics. All I can say is we were mere yards from elephants, lions, rhinos, monkeys, baboons, leopard and even had cheetah rub against our vehicle bumper.
Can someone please help us make our decision... We are going next July to Gamewatchers Selenkay Adventure Camp, Porini Rhino Camp and Ol Kinyei Adventure Camp. Our dilema is we don't know whether to book through Gamewatchers directly, and be subject to a very quickly dropping Australian dollar, or book through our Australian Travel agency. I want to support the work of the Porini conservancies and would hope that they get their fare share of the price I would pay my local travel agent, but without having to worry about the dollar dropping more over the next 6-8 months before my final payment is made.
Has anyone else booked through a private travel agent as opposed to directly through Gamewatchers???
