Porini Bush Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Mid-range    

Porini Bush Camp overview

Porini Bush Camp is set up from mid-July to mid-October each year to capitalise on the amazing migration when it is in the Mara eco-system. It gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the spectacle in an area where you will see few other tourists, it's an authentic mobile safari, that stays in one place. A stay a Porini Bush Camp promises to be an eco-friendly experience, there are no permanent structures and there is minimal impact on the environment. At the end of the season, the camp is dismantled and the site reverts back to its natural state.

There are just 8 guest tents in the camp so you are assured of personal service away from the crowds. Based on traditional mobile tents, these are spacious and comfortably furnished. The beds have quality linen, duvets and soft pillows, no sleeping bags here!  Bathrooms are en-suite and have a shower, basin and flush toilet. Lighting is provided by gas lamps and solar power.

The separate dining tent is the location for mingling with other guests. Each day starts with a full breakfast and ends with a scrumptious 3 course dinner. Afterwards, many will take the opportunity of congregating by the campfire to have a night-cap and chat about the events of the day. We like to call it bush TV. Bush breakfasts and sundowners are arranged at scenic points in the conservancy too.

Day and night drives are the main activity here, you can explore the Ol Kinyei Conservancy as well as the 50,000 acre adjacent Naboisho Conservancy. The Masai Mara Reserve is also at your disposal - so no two game drives are the same. In complete contrast to game drives you can experience nature on another level, up close and personal on an educational bush walk with Maasai guides.

Location: Porini Bush Camp is in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy. The Ol Seki airstrip, which is used by scheduled flights between Nairobi and Mara,services the camp.

Facilities: There is a central mess and lounge tent. In this relaxed space you'll spend time between drives and walks, chatting to guests, catching up with reading and enjoying fine food and drink. The camp manager has facilities for re-charging batteries and will do so on request.
