Amboseli Porini Camp

Selenkay Conservancy, Kenya

Amboseli Porini Camp

Amboseli Porini Camp is situated in the Selenkay Conservancy, 15,000-acres of private game reserve in the Amboseli, Kenya's second great safari territory.

Amboseli Porini Camp is situated in the Selenkay Conservancy, a 6,000-hectare wildlife reserve adjoining Amboseli National Park that is owned and managed by the Kisonko Maasai clan. The Selenkay is a habitat for an array of species, including several less common mammals such as the African wildcat, striped hyena and civet, as well as the usual big game (lion and even cheetah are present in good numbers). Porini operate the only camp in the conservancy, allowing for undisturbed game-viewing. Guided Maasai walks with sundowners and evening game drives are offered at the camp, whereas they are not possible in the main National Park.

Amboseli Porini is an intimate, exclusive camp, accommodating up to 18 guests in its nine spacious tents. Very much a traditional bush camp, there are no permanent structures at Amboseli Porini - this is real bush camping. Dining is under canvas. There is no pool.


The tents are spacious and comfortably furnished, each with double and single bed, solar-powered electricity, and en-suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet.


Meals are taken outdoors under the shade of an Acacia tree, or in the open-air mess tent.

Environmental Policy

The camp is staffed by members of the local Maasai community, and is very much focused on protecting the local environment. One of the reason the number of visitors is so limited is to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimise any damage caused to the environment.
