Porini Amboseli Camp is located within the private and almost exclusive Selenkay Conservancy that lies a few kilometres north of the famed Amboseli National Park.
The Selenkay Conservancy offers guests a true safari experience away from all the minibuses and tourists of the Amboseli. If excellent guiding, fantastic wildlife sightings and an authentic safari experience are what you are looking for, look no further. Porini Amboseli is fantastic and comes highly recommended.
Wildlife that can be spotted and photographed includes; elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, Thompson's and Grant's gazelles, gerenuk, impala, oryx, lesser kudu, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, striped hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox, caracal, African wild cat, serval cat, genet cat, honey badger and mongoose.
Birdlife is prolific, especially birds of prey for those of us out there that enjoy birding as a hobby.
Porini Amboseli Camp offers guests just 10 large and authentic tented safari suites with private verandahs, twin/king-sized bedding and en-suite bathrooms.
The decor is more of a rustic affair but well suited for a safari camp of this nature.
Note: there are charging facilities in-room.
The cuisine is based around a set menu experience with hearty breakfasts, light lunches and three-course dinners all served in and around the central guest area.
Porini Amboseli is a fully inclusive camp and includes all meals and local drinks (gin, vodka, wine, beer, sodas and mineral water).
Most dietary requirements for with advanced notice.
The central guest area is a basic yet functional affair; a tented mess area offers guests an indoor dining area and a small lounge. Outdoors, a firepit awaits for those after-dinner stories.
The camp runs purely off solar energy, there are no electrical outlets in the guest tents whatsoever, and all battery charging for cameras and phones is done in the manager's office.
There are no permanent structures in camp, and therefore no swimming pool. Instead, Porini Amboseli offers guests as pure a safari experience as one can get in Africa.
Expert safari guides and trackers lead game drives in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles; game drives are the main safari attraction when staying at Porini Amboseli Camp in the Selenkay Conservancy.
Morning, afternoon and full-day (with picnic lunch) game drives are available, as are night drives as Porini Amboseli Camp is located in a private concession.
For those interested in stretching their legs, an escorted safari/cultural walk is an option during the course of the day.
