The award-winning, eco-friendly Porini Lion Camp is located on the banks of the seasonal Ntiakatiak River within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy; a pristine and exclusive 22 000-acre wilderness set aside for wildlife conservation. This large area borders the Masai Mara National Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals including the Mara’s renowned Big Cats.
Porini Lion Camp is an ideal base from which to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration or take to the sky and enjoy unparalleled views from a hot air balloon.
The camp boasts ten spacious luxury Tents, each tastefully furnished with solar-powered lighting, ensuite bathrooms with showers and a private verandah.
The camp facilities include a comfortable lounge area as well as both indoor and outdoor dining areas.
Porini Lion Camp offers a unique opportunity to take guided walks with Maasai Warriors and experience day and night game drives within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Game drives are in specially-designed off-road safari vehicles with expert safari guides to ensure the best possible game-viewing. Guests particularly enjoy the drives within the Conservancy where they experience the wilderness without being surrounded by other tourist vehicles.
The conservancy directly borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve and it contains the lower valleys of the Olare Orok and Ntiakitiak rivers, riverine forest, the Ntiakitiak Gorge and a 12km escarpment below which are large areas of acacia woodland. The area is teeming with wildlife during the Great Wildebeest Migration (generally June to October) and there are several prides of lion and many elephant. Endangered species such as rhino and wild dog are also evident.
There is another Wildebeest Migration from Kenya’s Loita Plains to the Mara which moves into Ol Kinyei Conservancy usually by January. The calving takes place there during February and March then they move through Olare Motorogi and into the Mara Reserve.
Porini Lion Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for an authentic and rewarding safari adventure.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
