kicheche compared to porini

Jump to last reply

well the safari bug definitely bit us hard! we went on our first family safari with 2 teens end of june/early july and we all loved it! my husband was so apprehensive about the trip and he was perhaps bitten the hardest! I knew it would be amazing, but just not how amazing

we did sanctuary at ol lenttile for 4 nights (luxurious soft spot to land with amazing cultural interactions and activities) and then 3 nights kicheche lakipia and final 4 nights at kicheche mara. we were very happy with guides, private vehicle, accomodations, level of service, comfort and food. unfortunately, kicheche is not offering any deals for next summer (we had a 3 for 4 and some kids discounts) so our safari planner is suggesting ol lentille again (we want this) and then porini lion and cheetah, the new camp. these are different locations from mara north where kicheche mara is located.

we never did get to see a leopard last trip so that is high on our list. kicheche set a high standard. how does it compare to porini?

we spent to little time in our tent as we went out at 6:15, were back 12:30 for lunch and then back out from 4-7 ish. I do want comfortable.

kicheche had warm ponchos in the jeeps. food was excellent as was service. will I get this at porini?

thanks all.
