Meet Jui and Nirmalya Banerjee, our hosts at Porini Cheetah Camp, as they describe how the camp was conceived and developed, and what makes a stay at the camp so special.
Porini Cheetah Camp is one of our accommodation choices in Ol Kinyei Conservancy in the Masai Mara. The conservancy is a vast area of pristine habitat that has been set aside for wildlife, and only our Porini guests have access to this area.
The camp opened in June 2017 and, like all the other Porini camps, it is a small-tented camp designed to maximise your wildlife experience.
The conservancy, which is part of the wider Masai Mara ecosystem, is considered a hotspot for big cats, especially cheetahs which are regularly seen with cubs. It is also home to large herds of elephants, apart from the plains game for which the Maasai Mara eco-system is justly famous. Safari drives can also be taken in the nearby Maasai Mara National Reserve and the adjacent Naboisho Conservancy.
The Porini Cheetah Camp is located close to the Olare Lemunyi watercourse, between the White Rock feature on the one hand and a marsh fed by a permanent underground spring that is a magnet for the antelopes and zebras, especially in the dry season. The White Rock is an excellent location for sun downers because of the view from the top.
A stay at Porini Camps directly supports conservation by protecting habitat and also supports local communities through land leases and employment.
