Open: Porini Rhino Camp is open from June to mid-April.

Location: Porini Rhino Camp is in the 90,000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia, of which 60,000 acres are reserved for safaris and eco-camps. It is in a peaceful valley shaded by acacia trees. The nearest airstrip is a 10 minute drive away and is used by private charters. The Nanyuki airstrip which is used by scheduled flights is 45 minutes away.

Rooms: There are 7 spacious guest tents, all with en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and safari (bucket) showers. You'll have a double and a single bed and solar-powered lighting. From your private veranda you'll have views of the waterhole and surrounding wilderness. Staff provide hot water bottles for your bed on cool nights.

Activities: The camp offers 4x4 game drives by day and night and Maasai-guided bush walks. There is a hide for wildlife watching and photography. You can round off an afternoon safari with sundowners in a specially selected location. Visits to the Northern White Rhino Breeding Centre and the Chimpanzee Sanctuary are also available.

Facilities: The mess tent has dining and sitting areas. Food is good, nourishing home cooking including freshly-baked bread. Lunch is often eaten outdoors within sight of the waterhole. Dinner is served by candlelight and is preceded by sundowners around the camp fire.

Dining: Meals are generally eaten at the same time but at separate tables in the dining tent or outside.

Children: Children aged 8 years and over are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is a limited email service for emergency use. The mobile phone coverage is patchy.

Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Great chef! We saw the kitchens. Immaculate! Again, the tents were so comfortable, it was difficult to get out of bed for the six thirty game drive, but soooo worth it when you did.
