Trip Advisor puts Porini Mara Camp into their ‘top ten’ for Africa 31 Jan 2012 | By Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Thome
The hotel review site has just published their recommendations for 2012 and Mara Porini Camp, one of four outstanding properties in Kenya, is amongst the places recommended for a visit. Mr. Mohanjeet Brar, one of the Directors of Porini / Gamewatchers, expressed his delight with the TripAdvisor findings and the recommendations made through the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Hotel Awards and said: ‘We really appreciate your support at the Porini Camps as your stay goes directly to supporting the community with over 140 Maasai employed at our camps and over 500 families benefiting directly, in addition to over 115,000 acres of wilderness area and wildlife being protected for future generations!’
This correspondent has firsthand experience with Gamewatchers / Porini and has in the past rated all four of their properties, the Amboseli Porini Camp on their Selenkay Conservancy, the Porini Rhino Camp on Ol Pejeta, the Porini Lion Camp and the Porini Mara Camp, both of these located on their adjoining conservancies outside the Masai Mara Game Reserve. See the latest comments on any of the Porini Camps by visiting TripAdvisor and to see this correspondent’s ratings, check out ‘Safariafficionado’s comments on these fine examples of the best tradition in tented safari camps and other properties visited.
Congratulations to the Porini / Gamewatchers staff on once again making it into the top rankings.
