Amboseli Porini Camp is located in the Selenkay Conservation Area, a 15,000-acre private game reserve within a vast tract of land owned by the Kisonko clan of the Maasai people.
The Conservancy is an important dispersal area for wildlife moving in and out of Amboseli and holds a wide diversity of species.
In addition to the better-known big game like elephant, lion, cheetah, giraffe and zebra, there are several less common species such as caracal, African wildcat, civet, gerenuk, lesser kudu and striped hyena.
The lodge's private four-wheel-drive track links the Selenkay Conservancy to the Amboseli National Park so that they have the bonus of game drives in the park as well as in our own exclusive reserve.
The Camp consists of nine spacious tents, sited among shady Acacia Tortilis trees. The camp is small and exclusive, accommodating a maximum of 18 guests.
It is set up along the lines of the traditional safari bush camp - there are no permanent structures like bar or restaurant or swimming pool – this is real camping in the bush, but with comfortable en suite bathrooms.
The tents are large and comfortably furnished, each with a double and a single bed, solar-powered electric lights, and en suite bathroom with safari 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 entirely by members of the local Maasai community apart from the manager and head chef.
