Porini Amboseli Safari Camp is small – with just 9 spacious guest tents – and retains all the charm and feel of the traditional luxury camps of days gone by. Tents are tastefully furnished and have solar powered electric lighting with en suite bathrooms including shower, wash basin and flush toilet. 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 shared game drives, guided walks and sundowners). Game drives are in specially-designed, open-sided off-road (4x4) safari vehicles with expert safari guides.
Shared game drives with excellent guides in the Selenkay Conservancy and in the Amboseli National Park. (Private vehicles available at a supplement).
A full day (with picnic lunch) spent in the National Park to get close to the elephants and other wildlife.
An escorted walk with Maasai warriors to visit an authentic Maasai village.
Night game drives in the Selenkay Conservancy to seek out the nocturnal animals.
Gamewatchers Safaris is supporting the conservation of wildlife through the community at Selenkay and is involved in managing the Selenkay Conservancy and operating the Amboseli Porini Camp. This generates an income for the community and employment opportunities for them within the Selenkay Conservancy and at the Amboseli Porini Camp. The community is receiving a rent for the lease of the area by Porini Safari Camps, plus an entry fee for each tourist visitor. All roads have been constructed using local labour so that the members of the community gain employment from the Conservancy. In addition to the road maintenance team, Game Scouts have been employed to carry out patrols to see that the wildlife is protected.
