Porini Lion Camp: picture gallery


Porini Lion Camp has very good game-drive vehicles, with excellent vantage points.
All the staff at Porini Lion Camp are from the local Maasai community.
The camp is tucked into deep bush…
…on the banks of the Ntiakatek river.
All the guest tents are large and well-spaced, either close to the river in the open…
…or pitched under shady trees…
…further upstream.
The central areas of Porini Lion Camp consist of a large lounge and dining tent…
…with comfy and convivial seating at one end, close to the bush through the screen windows…
…and a mix of individual and larger group dining tables at the other.
Coffee and tea, and filtered water, are always available. But the lack of style is evident.
Inside the spacious tents, furnishings are contemporary and comfortable.
if you prefer to keep some distance between yourself and the bush, curtains pull across the screens.
The vinyl floor is softened with vibrant rugs…
…and there's a useful writing table next to the flap through to the bathroom.
The bathrooms are a good size, and again combine vinyl floors with rugs and wooden furnishings.
The family tent consists of two interconnecting bedrooms and a central lounge.
