A small and intimate camp designed along the lines of a traditional tented safari camp, with added luxuries.
Within striking distance of Mount Kilimanjaro, Porini Amboseli Camp is located within the exclusive Selenkay Conservancy, in the Amboseli eco-system - an important wildlife dispersal area and range for game moving out of Amboseli National Park.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp has nine spacious guest tents, shaded by Acacia Tortilis trees. Each solar-powered tent is comfortably furnished and includes an en-suite bathroom, with a shower, wash-basin and flush toilet.
Set up as a traditional hunting safari bush camp, Porini Amboseli Camp has no permanent structures, and evening meals are taken around the camp fire, listening to the sounds of the African night. The camp is staffed by members of the local Masai Community
A full day's game viewing includes a packed picnic lunch in the park, with evening sundowners enjoyed at a scenic viewpoint. Tasty evening meals are served around the campfire.
Day and night-time game drives operate in custom designed, open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles. Sundowners with views of Mt Kilimanjaro are all part of the experience and bird-watching excursions are also on offer.
Wildlife and cultural walks escorted by Masai guides are offered, teaching about the Masai tribes’ relationship with their natural surroundings. Guests are also taken to a local Masai village to experience traditional Masai village life.
Porini Amboseli Camp does not accept children under 8 years.
The aim of Porini camps is to assist local communities in the sustainable use of the land and wildlife; communities receive economic benefits, such as income and employment opportunities, in return for conserving the wildlife and natural habitat.
