We have now visited all the Porini camps in Kenya. We found the same Porini service we have become to expect, and must compliment Clemence and her team for the wonderful time we spent over 2 nights. Andrew was a most considerate and intelligent guide and though we saw the large animals, it was the smaller things we came across,...

From the very first moment we arrived we were amazed again and again. Not only by the spectacular camp and surroundings, but also the impeccable service and genuinely kind people! We would definitely come back as our stay was not long enough, and will be recommending to family and friends. Thank you!!

Stayed for 2 days (1 night) at the camp and it surpassed expectations in every way. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, food was delicious, location spectacular and the game drives were spectacular. If you're having any doubts about booking, don't. Book it and you won't regret it!

A colleague and I recently spent two days at the Nairobi Tented Camp. It was a wonderful experience. The camp itself was very well set up. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and helpful. The food was terrific. The 4 wildlife drives we had afforded us an excellent picture of African wildlife, with expert commentary from our guide. While a...

We were met at the airport and taken to the main park gate where the 4x4 met us and took us to the camp. It is indeed a 'tented' camp with modern amenities/luxuries! Our room was very well laid out, bathroom was large and shower worked well (it is filled via bucket when you want it). We enjoyed sitting in...

The safari camp was a great start to our trip. Only a short distance from the airport and really good service. The elephant orphanage is a must see! We were also lucky enough to have a rhino run across the road as we drove to the camp.

I was very pleased to find this tented camp open on this my second safari to Kenya. It was a perfect start to my wildlife adventures. It has all the great amenities, service, and excellent features of the Gamewatchers Porini Tented Camps and is a welcome initiation to the safari experience directly from the plane to the wilds.

We booked two nights as we had to stay over in Nairobi anyway. A safari camp in town sounded so weird that we had to try it. To our surprise it was a genuine safari experience. A full-blown bush camp within reach of the town and airport! And not just a bushcamp, a very good one at that. It started...
