My July 2017 Trip

Kenya between 22 Jul 2017 and 30 Jul 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"Overall a really great trip. Porini Camp was not great , but maybe I have been a little spoilt in recent years having stayed at some amazing spots, Elephant Bedroom being one of the best.

As I mentioned I really loved the Samburu area, and would love to go back next year."

Porini Amboseli Camp

Porini Amboseli Camp

"Porini Amboseli"

3 nights Arrived 23 Jul 2017
"Not one of the better camps I've stayed at ! I found the camp a bit disorganised, we were asked to be ready for game drives at a certain time, but our guide was always 15-20 minutes late.

I had chosen this camp because of my love of elephants, very few in the conservancy, and we only went into Amboseli one day for a few hours.

I presume that you passed onto the camp that I was vegetarian, very embarrassing when I asked for a vegetarian meal, it finally arrived when all the other guests had finished eating, and was the same meal they all had, minus the chicken.On the last night the meal was good, so they finally got things right.

I was in the furthest away tent, which is ok, but they would forget about me in the evenings, and I would need to walk to dinner unescorted-- I was ok with this, but for other guests who have not had much bush experience it would have been a frightening experience, especially after they had emphasised the dangers of walking alone after dark.

A small thing, but I never got a clean towel in the 3 days I was there. The second day I purposely left it on the floor, but it still wasn't replaced, just folded and put back on the rack, dirty .

The staff were lovely, I just don't think the management skills were there, things seemed a bit disorganised. This all sounds quite picky when I read back over it, but I have stayed in many different camps over the years, and have very rarely been disappointed."

Elephant Bedroom

Elephant Bedroom

"the Magnificent Elephant Bedroom"

3 nights Arrived 26 Jul 2017
"I realise this camp was a lot more expensive than the first, but the contrast was amazing, can't praise Elephant Bedroom enough.
My guide James was fantastic, really went out of his way to make sure you saw as much as possible, and very knowledgable.
Beautiful food, lots of choice, and the rooms were lovely.

I really enjoyed my stay here so much that I am thinking of returning next year.

Heaps of beautiful elephants !"
