This high-quality camp is located within Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a vast 90000-acre wildlife area between the Aberdares and the majestic Mount Kenya. The conservancy is home to a variety of animals including the “Big Five”. It is the largest sanctuary in East Africa for the endangered Black Rhino and is also a sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees.
Porini Rhino Camp is in a secluded valley, on the banks of a seasonal river and under the shade of acacia trees. The camp consists of just six spacious and comfortable guest tents, each having been carefully sited to take advantage of the wonderful surrounding views. Each tent is tastefully furnished and has solar-power lighting and ensuite hot shower and flush toilet. The camp is specially designed to have minimum environmental impact (with no permanent structures and using eco-friendly fuel).
The camp is fully inclusive of meals, drinks (gin & tonics, beer, wine, sodas and mineral water) as well as all activities (day and night shared game drives, escorted walks and sundowners). The Conservancy ensures excellent game-viewing and game drives - with “proper” open-sided, off-road (4x4) safari vehicles and expert safari guides.
Porini Rhino Camp is helping accomplish the Conservancy’s aims of generating profits from wildlife tourism for reinvesting into community development in the local area. The camp is staffed from the local Maasai population and the camp adheres to strict eco-friendly and responsible eco tourism principles.
Prices include flights to Nanyuki from (and back to) Nairobi and transfers from Nanyuki to camp.
Our Walking Safari is the perfect excursion from Porini Rhino Camp and can be added to any of our itineraries.

Baraka was one of the first rhinos born on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. After losing an eye to an infection following a fight he unfortunately developed a cataract in the other eye and subsequently became completely blind. With a low chance of survival on his own, Baraka was moved from the wild to a 100 acre enclosure in order to ensure his safety.
Baraka is now an ambassador for his species – and a popular attraction at Ol Pejeta. There is a feeding platform from which visitors can get up close to view and feed him, an experience not to be missed. Baraka receives visitors daily from 9.30am to 6.00pm, with feeding times three times per day.
Formed in 1993 as a joint alliance between The Jane Goodall Institute and Kenyan Wildlife Services this sanctuary was established as a refuge for orphaned and confiscated chimpanzees and is the only place in Kenya where non-indigenous chimpanzees can be seen.
The Sanctuary provides a permanent refuge in as natural environment as possible – the 40 or so chimpanzees are protected on an island and access to see them is by boat.
The cost of a visit to Baraka and to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary is already included within the Conservancy fee.
The Endangered Species Boma is a must-see for any trip to Ol Pejeta. Here visitors can meet and learn about the Northern White Rhinos which are critically endangered with only seven left in the world. Four of them are here and visitors can have the unique experience of seeing these majestic creatures up close. The boma also has six southern white rhinos, two black rhinos and numerous Grevy’s zebras and Jackson’s hartebeest.
Visitors are limited and only two vehicles per day have access – so pre-booking is recommended.
Price: US $15 per person for 3 or more people, or a total fee of $35 is charged for 1 or 2 people. All funds raised go directly towards the care of the four Northern White Rhinos.
