Amboseli Porini Camp is in the Selenkay Conservation Area, a 15,000-acre private game reserve bordering the northern boundary of Amboseli National Park. This is a vast tract of land owned by the Kisonko clan of the Maasai people. The Conservation Area is an important dispersal area for wildlife moving in and out of Amboseli and actually holds a wider diversity of species than is found inside the park!

Amboseli Porini is a small and exclusive camp sited among shady acacia trees in a spot once favoured by big game hunters. It is a traditional safari bush camp, with no permanent structures such as bar, restaurant or swimming pool. This is real camping in the bush, but with much more comfortable bathroom arrangements than were available to the hunters of earlier years!

Guests are accommodated in the 10 spacious tents which are large and comfortably furnished. Each has a double and a single bed, solar lights, and en suite bathroom with shower, washbasin and flush toilet.

Meals are taken under the shade of an acacia tree and after dinner you can sit around the campfire and listen to the sounds of the African night. The camp is staffed mainly by members of the local Maasai community.

All transport is in specially designed open-sided 4-wheel drive vehicles. As there are no other vehicles in the conservancy, guests here enjoy an exclusive game-viewing experience. Amboseli Porini offers escorted walks with Maasai trackers and guides. You can also visit a local Maasai village to learn about the traditional way of life.

Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Our first introduction to safari bush camping - 12 tents widely sited and a sense of privacy and closeness to the bush. Not luxurious (thankfully) but quite as comfortable as we could have wished. Enjoyed the sundowners in the bush and the pre-dinner gatherings around the camp fire. All very atmospheric.
