Our Community Outreach Projects

Over the years, we at Gamewatchers Safaris and Porini Camps have participated in various projects within our partner communities and the conservancies.

We support a number of life-changing initiatives to which our clients are invited to make contributions.

    Porini Boma Programme

    Porini Boma Strengthening Programme

    We aid the local Maasai in reinforcing their traditionally constructed bomas to help prevent predators from entering the Maasai village and livestock enclosures. The reinforced bomas ensure that predators that target their natural prey are no longer threats to the community.

    Porini Conservancies Rangers

    Porini Conservancies Rangers Programme

    Rangers are the backbone in ensuring wildlife and habitat security in Kenya's Parks, Reserves and Conservancies. As our conservancies have grown, so has the need for more rangers. We ensure that our partner communities see a direct benefit from this initiative as we employ 100% of our rangers from within the local villages.
