Porini Amboseli Camp

About Porini Amboseli Camp

Porini Amboseli Camp is located within the exclusive Selenkay Conservancy, in the Amboseli eco-system. This is an intimate camp, designed along the lines of a traditional tented safari camp - but offers many more luxuries than were available to the pioneering safari goers of earlier years! The camp has nine spacious guest tents, sited amongst shady, acacia tortilis trees.

Whilst in the conservancy, guests can spot all of the better-known big game such as elephant, lion, cheetah, giraffe and zebra, as well as several less common species such as caracal, African wildcat, civet, gerenuk, lesser kudu and striped hyena.

The camp has striking views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
