Porini Amboseli Safari Camp is small â?? with just 9 spacious guest tents â?? and retains all the charm and feel of the traditional luxury camps of days gone by.

This award-winning safari camp is set in the Amboseli eco-system within the exclusive Selenkay Conservancy- an important wildlife dispersal area for wildlife moving out of Amboseli National Park. The private conservation area ensures the best possible game viewing in proper off-road safari vehicles, off the beaten track and away from other tourist vans and minibuses.

The Selenkay Conservation Area, a 15,000-acre private game reserve within a vast tract of land owned by the Kisonko clan of the Maasai people. The Conservancy is an important dispersal area for wildlife moving in and out of Amboseli and holds a wide diversity of species. In addition to the better-known big game like elephant, lion, cheetah, giraffe and zebra, there are several less common species such as caracal, African wildcat, civet, gerenuk, lesser kudu and striped hyena. The private four-wheel-drive track links the Selenkay Conservancy to the Amboseli National Park so guests have the advantage of game drives in the park as well as in the exclusive reserve.

Porini Amboseli Camp consists of nine spacious tents, sited among shady Acacia Tortilis trees, in a spot once favoured by big game hunters.

The camp is small and exclusive, accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. It is set up along the lines of the traditional hunting safari bush camp, so there are no permanent structures like bar or restaurant or swimming pool – this is real camping in the bush, but with much more comfortable bathroom arrangements than were available to the hunters of earlier years!

The tents are large and comfortably furnished, each with a double and a single bed, solar-powered electric lights, and en suite bathroom with safari shower, washbasin and flush toilet. Meals are taken under the shade of an Acacia tree and after dinner we can sit around the campfire and listen to the sounds of the African night.

The camp provides an exclusive yet friendly experience with a maximum of 18 guests at a time and it is fully-inclusive of all meals, drinks (wine, gin & tonics, beer, sodas and mineral water) and activities (including day and night game drives, guided walks and sundowners).

The camp is staffed entirely by members of the local Maasai community apart from the manager and head chef.

This is a great little spot, very charming and away from the masses.
