Porini Lion Camp - situated in the exclusive Olare Motorogi Conservancy

Porini Lion Camp is located in the exclusive 33,000 acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy. This expansive conservancy, which borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve is home to an abundance of animals including the Big Cats for which the Mara is famous.



The camp is situated only a few kilometers from the Mara Game Reserve and a 30-minute drive from the Talek Gate.

The Ol Kiombo airstrip used by the daily scheduled flights to Mara from Nairobi is a short 25-minute drive from camp.

See the Porini Camps Map for the exact location.


The Camp
The eco-friendly camp has no permanent construction and is situated along the Ntiakatiak River, a seasonal river with permanent hippo pools near camp.

With 10 guest tents the camp is very exclusive and giving you a real in the bush experience. The tents are very spacious and have private verandahs along the length of the tent, providing a secluded and private 'space' for you to relax and enjoy the beauty of this African wilderness. Each tent has en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers.

Food is excellent with fresh baked bread and high quality meals prepared by the camp chef.
The Experience
Qualified safari guides enhance the experience by educating the guests about the flora, fauna and people of the surrounding areas. Guests are taken on day and night game drives in our custom built open-sided 4x4's.

In the evening they are taken to a scenic spot, to enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down. A night game drive is taken on the way back to camp, giving guests the opportunity to see many of the elusive nocturnal animals. Maasai warriors escort guests on a walk in the conservancy where they can learn about how the various indigenous animals and plants are used by the community and how their way of life is intertwined with their surroundings.

The new Porini Lion Camp, located in the vast 33,000 acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy is the ideal base from which to experience the million strong wildebeest migration.
Daily Programme
During your stay, clients will normally have a programme as follows, but of course we're flexible and there to cater to what you'd like:

Day 1
Depart Nairobi Wilson Airport at 10 am for your 50 minute flight into the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve. You'll be met at the airstrip by your safari guide from Lion Camp in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicle and will immediately be "on safari" in the Mara. Enjoy the day in the Mara with a picnic lunch on the look out for the Big Cats. Then drive to Lion Camp and settle into your tent. Afternoon game drive, followed by a sundowner at a scenic point. Return to camp for a shower, dinner and overnight.

Day 2
Awake at dawn to the natural sounds of Masai Mara's birdlife. After early morning tea you will have a game drive in the conservancy on the lookout for the Big Five! Return to camp for breakfast followed by a morning nature walk across the plains escorted by Maasai warriors returning for lunch. In the afternoon you will go on a game drive in Olare Orok Conservancy, stopping for a sundowner at a scenic viewpoint, followed by a night game drive to look for nocturnal animals. Return to camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 3
Early morning walk in the Conservancy with Maasai warriors, followed by breakfast. Then depart on the flight back to Nairobi, arriving around 12.15 pm.
Local Maasai community members own the Olare Orok Conservancy and are receiving a direct benefit from wildlife, seeing wildlife as a valuable resource which belongs to them. They earn a direct income from each guest in the conservancy and also much needed employment for their members. Other than the head chef, camp manager and head guide all the other camp staff are from the surrounding communities.

Porini Lion Camp is run and maintained with the conservation of the environment at the forefront. The numbers of tourist visitors in the conservancy are being limited to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimize the impact on the environment.

During their stay our guests have various opportunities to learn about the local Maasai people and how the Olare Orok Conservancy and Lion Camps' goals are aligned with theirs. We have a written environmental policy in regards to water, land, energy, solid waste and sewage which is adhered to by the camp management.

Our Kenya safari was such a memorable experience and we wanted to let you know how our stay at the Porini Camps made all the difference! We read about the crowds in places like the Masai Mara and almost decided to go elsewhere.
