“We have just come back from our fantastic Safaris with this company. Organised by Kirsty from the Gold Coast, a credit to your company. We did a Gorilla trek 4 days in Uganda it was my dream come true saw 15 of the family group so close I could have taken one home. It has been on bucket list do 30 years and I can it was worth the wait. Bwindi Lodge what can I say just beautiful and the staff amazing. Then on our Safaris did one night at Nairobi National Park amazing just a great start to our trip. Then on to Porini Amboseli 3 days what a wonderful experience that was. The animals,staff where marvellous. Our Guide Wilson and driver Malita were incredible and so knowledgeable. Freddy the camp manager was ever so friendly , it was our 44th wedding anniversary so the Massi Sang and danced for us it was truly a beautiful moment we will never forget. They even made us a cake so much thought into. Jackson of course with his famous drinks. Made some great memories there. Then onto Porini Mara 3 days what a beautiful camp even more animals and even more friendly staff. Had a ballooning trip over the Mara for our anniversary my god so peaceful and beautiful .They are a credit to Gamewatchers and Africa. All I can say is thank you Gamewatchers from the bottom my heart for making our dreams come true. Hope to be back one day."

“Just wanted to send a quick email to say I just had such an amazing experience at the Porini Camps. It exceeded all my expectations and is easily the best holiday I’ve ever had - in fact I’d more call it an experience than a holiday. The staff were wonderful - so knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and professional. The fact our visiting helps the conservancies, their people and animals made it even more meaningful. I would like to mention some staff in particular - David and Johnathon at the Rhino Camp, Jimmy Bill and George at Mara and our super patient, absolutely lovely driver Sammy in Nairobi."

“On a Gamewatchers Safari every day is an experience of a lifetime. The tented camp experience is second to none and simply not to be missed. This Safari we stayed at Porini Mara Camp and Porini Cheetah Camp.
The huge advantage of the Porini Camps is being able to go off road and get so close to the animals courtesy of the fantastic and oh so knowledgeable guides. This time however we had a magnificent male leopard who decided he would join us on a track and walk down the side of the vehicle close enough to touch on the way to his nearby kill in a tree.
There is something for everyone with Porini from all the animals to the simply amazing birdlife and you don't have to be a professional photographer to capture your amazing experience.
The tents are great, the food fantastic, the sundowners unbelievable and not to be missed and all the staff are just wonderful.”

“A return trip to Porini for 10 nights with stops at Amboseli, Mara and of course Lion Camp. Made new friends and saw old friends. Very pleased with the diversity of those camps and the sightings! Feels like family and goes without saying that I will be back. To our guides: Julius and Amos and Amboseli Camp, Bill and James at Mara Camp and my old friends Jackson and Julius at Lion Camp: Ashe Oleng Pi !

“I have just spent 10 wonderful days at various Porini camps in Kenya. Nairobi tented, Amboseli, Mara and Lion. Wow! What an amazing experience. Each camp was unique. Fantastic staff and awesome guides who showed us so many wonderful sightings. I have just left but will definitely be planning a return trip. And definitely only with Porini Camps and Gamewatchers. Everything was perfect an it started with my first contact with Kristy Thompson who is the Australian representative for Gamewatchers. She was so helpful in planning my perfect trip."
