Porini Rhino Camp excellent safari

Highlights were seeing cheetah and her cub, 2 day old giraffe, hyena and her cub, and black backed jackal families one with 4 and one with 6 pups. In addition seeing the 2 types of rhino.

The water hole in front of our tent in camp was very special and we spent all our time whilst in camp watching bush TV!!

The camp was excellent and like the Porini Amboseli was unfenced, simple but comfortable just as we love.

Michael, our driver/guide, was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about animal behaviour.

Porini Rhino Camp review

Great place for seeing rhino of course. We woke to see a rhino out by the waterhole one morning, as well as lots of other animals, but also lots of rhino on the game drives. Again saw lots of birds just from our tent. The usual lovely Porini staff and service. One of the real pluses of the trip was meeting the Masai staff and learning something about them and their lives. We had some really interesting conversations and feel very privileged to have had that opportunity.

Again liked having a view from the tent.

Porini Rhino Camp review

Stayed in August and it was out of this world for people wanting to experience a small camp and where seeing wildlife has to be worked for and therefore really enjoyed. (ie there are no other vans radioing each other) Stayed with another family (4 adults and 4 teenagers in total) We occupied 4 tents - all very tastefully decorated and very private. There is a water hole in front of the main tent - this was frequented by lots of animals.
Service was truly outstanding - bent over backwards to make this a very memorable safari. They made the most beautiful birthday cake for our son and sang and danced for him! Very touching.
The camp prides itself of it's low impact on the surrounding environment - and does a good job at using solar power and hot 'bucket' showers.
Kids were taken in their own safari truck and adults in another. The highlights have to be that when ever we saw any game we were the only trucks to see it. We were able to meet Sudan - the last remaining male Northern Rhino and his few female friends. Also visited the chimp sanctuary - this does feel a little out of place in this part of Africa - but does good work in rehabilitating chimps. We also had the "pleasure" of seeing Max the chimp work his "magic" on the crowd!! You have been WARNED!
Special touches (surprises) were added to each safari.
I could not recommend this place highly enough - go before there are no Northern Rhinos left in the world!

Porini Rhino Camp

I was the only guest in the camp which was both good and bad - I had the game drives all to myself with Driver Daniel and Spotter Little John. I had a wonderful time spending hours following the wild dogs, we saw so many rhinos and even spotted a Zorilla on an evening drive.

The visit to the endangered species boma was sad to see that there are so few northern white rhinos left. However, the manager seemed to think that I needed his company at every meal until I firmly advised him this was not required.

The location of the main tent overlooking the waterhole is lovely, you can sit and have a delicious meal whilst watching the animals go by. The tents are also very large and comfortable with hot water bottles provided to keep you warm on a chilly night. Safari style showers with water heated on demand but enough pressure to wash your hair.
