An eco-camp belonging to a Masai community, who recently set aside this wilderness area as a wildlife sanctuary.
With spectacular views across the Masai Mara, the camp is located within the savannah plains, forests and hills of the Ol Kinyei Conservancy. The conservancy holds a wide variety of the animal species for which the Masai Mara is famous, including a large resident pride of lions.
Accommodation & Facilities
Shaded by yellow-barked acacia trees, the six tents are set along the banks of the Laetoli - a permanent spring within Ol Kinyei. Each spacious tent has an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and safari shower.
The camp accommodates a maximum of 12 guests and gives the experience of real bush camping in an exclusive private wilderness, but with all the comforts required by discerning travellers. Guests can relax in the lounge area, enjoying a drink as the sun sets over the Masai Mara.
Food is excellent, with home-baked bread, fresh salads and high quality meals prepared by the Chef.
Morning, evening and night-time game drives operate in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles; sundowners at scenic viewing points are all part of the experience. Bird-watching excursions and escorted walks with Masai guides are also on offer.

The aim of Porini camps is to assist local communities in utilising the land and wildlife as a resource; communities receiving economic benefits, such as income and employment opportunities, in return for conserving the wildlife and natural habitat.
