Amboseli Porini Camp
The Selenkay Conservation Area lies a few miles north of the Amboseli National Park and is an important dispersal area for wildlife migrating out of Amboseli. Porini Camp
is the only one in this conservation area, and guests can enjoy game viewings, privacy and interesting conservation work in the reserve, as well as the famous big herds of elephant, buffalo, antelope, giraffe and cats which inhabit the Amboseli, with its famous views of the snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro.
Selenkay is a remote area in the heart of Maasai land and the animals are truly wild and not yet habituated to the presence of vehicles. The numbers of tourist visitors are limited to those staying at Porini to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimise the impact on the environment. Within the conservation area you will encounter a variety of plains game including elephant, gerenuk and giraffe, as well as some of the well known predators lion, leopard and cheetah. Some lesser known predators include bat-eared fox, caracal and African wild cat. Birdlife is prolific, especially birds of prey.
Porini is a delightful camp with six spacious tents, comfortably furnished and with en-suite bathrooms including shower, wash basin and flush toilet. Tents have solar-powered electric lighting. There is also a dining lodge and campfire where you can chat to your Maasai guides as the moon rises into a star-filled African sky.
