Dear ATCNews Readers,

Greetings from us all at Gamewatchers Safaris & Porini Camps!

Here in Kenya, the conservancies and parks are brimming with wildlife right now and guests at our Porini Safari Camps in particular have had some wonderful game-viewing in the past few weeks.

Our guests and safari guides have been sharing their images from the daily game-drives and guided walks.
