Porini Mara Camp

About Porini Mara Camp

Porini Mara Camp is located within the Ol Kinyei conservancy which belongs to a Masai community, who recently set aside this wilderness area as a sanctuary for wildlife. Mara Porini Camp is set within a pristine area of open savannah plains, riverine forest and rolling hills, and affords spectacular views across the Masai Mara.

The Mara Porini camp has six, en-suite guest tents, accommodating a maximum of 12 guests. Sited in the shade of yellow-barked acacia trees, the camp gives the experience of real camping in the bush in an exclusive private wilderness, with added comforts. 

The food at Mara Porini Camp is a highlight, offering delicious meals, home-bread baked and fresh salads.
