We are starting to plan our next trip though it will probably be in 2019. We've been to South Africa and Botswana, and think we'd like to go to Kenya. I have been looking at reviews of Porini camps and trip reports of stays at Porini Mara and Lion, and they look great (aside from recent controversy over a guide and a phone and one taking a video). Moreover, the price is affordable for us. What I can't understand is why ATR, which many safaritalk members love, give it such a low rating. Also, when I talked to a representative at a well-respected African travel agency about Porini, he wrote, "Porini camps are really rather basic and I’d suggest that while their prices are marginally cheaper, you’d probably be better off looking at companies like Asilia /Kicheche. Porini is almost the “next step up” from a back-packing, overland trip." He also told me that I should take the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor with a grain of salt! We don't want luxury though we do want comfort, and above all we want great guides and sightings. So I would love your thoughts.
bettel posted a topic in KenyaI am back from my 10 nights safari in Maasai Mara: 3 nights in Naboisho (Porini Mara) and 7 nights in OMC (Porini Lion) Warning #1: it was a little bit different type of safari so I guess this trip report will have a very limited audience. I spent 80% of my time with cheetahs. I sat with them almost from sunrise till sunset. We visited other animals only when cheetahs were sleeping (e.g. early morning or after cheetahs seemed to be settled for the night) or if we could not find our "victims". Saying this we still had some very very nice leopard and lion sightings but there will be a LOT of cheetah pictures. Please don't complain , I warned you. Warning #2: Please don't shoot the pianist, he is playing the best he can ©. While I was trying to do all my best to have good pictures, due to the lack of light, a lot of action, and lack of photography skills some photos are not that good (or better to say " not good at all") but I will post them anyway as they are part of the story
