About Us

About Us CampGamewatchers Safaris is one of Kenya’s leading tour operators and has been creating tailor-made adventures for over 25 years. We specialise in Africa – it is our passion – and we offer a wide range of safari and beach options to most camps, lodges and hotels across East Africa, South Africa and the Indian Ocean.

We own and operate the highly successful Porini Safari Camps – small high-quality tented camps on exclusive wildlife conservancies in some of the finest Big Game areas in Africa.

Our Owner-Directors are passionate about sustainable and responsible tourism and have had much involvement in the creation of Kenya’s wildlife conservancy concept – where wildlife is protected and preserved and income is generated for the local communities.
