Amboseli Porini Camp
Amboseli Porini Camp is in the Selenkay Conservation area which lies a few miles north of Amboseli National Park. This is an important area for migrating wildlife. The area is leased from the Maasai community, who also receive an entry fee for each visitor. Selenkay Conservation Area is well off the beaten track and has only recently been set up as a tourism destination. It lies in the heart of Maasai land where the animals are truly wild and not yet habituated to the presence of vehicles.
The number of visitors is limited to a maximum of 12 per day so as to minimize the environmental impact, as well as to preserve the unspoilt wilderness. Amboseli Porini Camp is a small camp with 6 spacious tents, comfortably furnished and equipped with en suite bathrooms including shower, wash basin and flush toilet. All the tents have solar-powered electric lighting. Visit a local village with your Maasai guide who will not only share his knowledge of the land with you, but who will provide you with an insight into the Maasai traditions and culture of this proud nation.
Daily safari activities include game drives in specially designed 4×4 vehicles and guided walks, including night drives in the conservancy. You can see a wide variety of wildlife in the area including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog and many species of buck. Birdlife is also prolific, especially birds of prey.
