Activities: Amboseli Porini is all about experiencing the wildlife, wilderness and local culture of Amboseli. Morning, evening and night game drives in Selenkay Conservancy are taken in open-sided 4x4 vehicles; bush walks with the Maasai are an great way to get to see some of the smaller things of the African wilderness and see the landscape through the eyes of the Maasai; game viewing in Amboseli National Park; and don't miss a Maasai village visit.

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.
