Activities at Porini Lion Camp
There is a somewhat almost primal joy about eating a meal in the raw wilderness of the African savannah, more so if the setting happens to be Masai Mara where it is quite possible that your views are framed by stunning landscapes and magnificent wildlife. Special meals are for this reason a popular activity during a safari in Masai Mara and are pre - included in your stay at the Porini Lion Camp
Guided Nature Walks
A walking adventure in the bush provides a new perspective on the African landscape and its many residents. Tread across the vast plains of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, accompanied by an authentic Maasai warrior, with tribal knowledge that spans over centuries. Learn the traditional Maasai way of life and discover how they live in harmony alongside Africa’s mighty wildlife. The perfect setting to appreciate nature, the slow pace of the walk combined with the interpretative skills of the guides will open your eyes to a fascinating world.
Night Game drives
If the wilderness is magical by day, by night it promises nocturnal theatre on a magnificent scale. Above you sparkles an unbelievable spangled canopy of stars, and around you wraps the soft velvet of the African night, punctuated by the rough, dry coughs of the lion, the cackling and whoop-whooping of the hyena, and the symphony of birdsong. Adventure indeed.
The night belongs to the hunters: the lions and the leopards. It’s also the only time when you may catch a glimpse of such elusive nocturnal creatures as aardvarks, cape hares and bush babies. Best of all, your vehicle will be equipped with a powerful hand-held lamp, which can be used to sweep the bush for sightings of creeping shadows and gleaming eyes. The light is filtered thus does not blind the animals.
Unique to the conservancy experience, night game drives are not permitted within the boundaries of the national parks and reserves. So they’re the ultimate safari luxury, game-viewing extravaganza and photo-opportunity
Optional Balloon Safaris
Hot Air Balloon rides are exhilarating in any setting. A hot air balloon safari over Masai Mara National Reserve, though, is a once in a lifetime experience!
Though this comes at an extra cost, we highly recommend it. Experience the thrilling "hot air balloon safari over the remarkable lands of Africa Maasai Mara. Glide your eyes over the panoramic plains and explore the fantastical features of the valleys, the sparkling rivers and the lush grasslands before you.
In between, the heads of gentle giraffe forging leafy trees, sleeping elephants sweeping in the cool wind, elegant gazelles sprinkling in the vast expanse, and the hippos pots sprinkle in the water can be seen.
