Meet the Lions
Guides at Porini Lion Camp and Mara Porini Camp who guide our guests during our PORINI WILDLIFE SAFARI have completed training on predator ecology and identification which will provide invaluable information on the lion and cheetah populations in the Olare Orok and Ol Kinyei Conservancies adjacent to the Maasai Mara. Within the safety of the conservancies, lion numbers have increased to 51 in Olare Orok and 19 in Ol Kinyei. These healthy prides of lions with their many cubs appear to have taken up permanent residency within the conservancies. Their food supply is plentiful and they are often seen hunting and socializing a short distance from the Porini Camps.
Profiles on the cheetah families and the individual lions and their prides are available in camp and in each vehicle. PORINI WILDLIFE SAFARI guests now have the opportunity to practice their lion identification skills and gather data regarding the health and habits of these magnificent animals.
Adding an extra dimension to what is a very varied and interesting safari which uses some very comfortable and traditional safari camps.
Have a look at the safari in more detail on our website. These are small camps and so numbers are limited,book early!
