Comfort and eco-friendly principles go hand in hand here. Spacious tents shaded by yellow bark acacia trees are furnished with comfortable natural wood beds and lit by solar lighting. The ensuite bathrooms have flush toilets and safari bucket showers. Having only six tents minimizes the environmental impact of the camp and it is closed for two months of the year to allow the site to regenerate.
The camp chef produces fresh and delicious meals, bush breakfasts overlooking the plains, picnic lunches for all day game drives, dinners served under the canopy of stars with the sounds of the plains animals providing the background music. A lounge tent and dining area provides a comfortable refuge in wetter weather and the impeccable and friendly service makes guests feel right at home.
It is the game viewing that sets Mara Porini apart. With the whole of the conservancy at their sole disposal and a resident pride of lions as well as abundant game large and small, guests can spend their days tracking and viewing game without seeing another vehicle.
All day game drives can be taken into the National Masai Mara Reserve too, but many guests choose to remain inside the conservancy and enjoy the privacy of exclusive game drives and unique sightings in the beautiful landscapes of savannah, riverine forest and rolling hills. Night drives to view nocturnal animals and game walks to look at the smaller fauna and flora, allow guests to get an understanding of the bigger picture. And game viewing continues in the unfenced camp where zebra, giraffe and elephants are happy to wander close, browsing and grazing.
Mara Porini excels in providing comfort, great personal service, fantastic game viewing and a responsible, eco-friendly approach for an authentic safari in Africa.
