Porini Camps - The Exclusive Kenya Safari Experience

"What a marvellous example of how people and wildlife can live alongside one another. Thank you all." - Sir David Attenborough

A Kenya safari holiday at one of the award winning Porini Camps is unlike any other.

The eco-friendly safari camps are small and authentic with rustic charm combined with creature comforts, such as private bathrooms with flush toilets in all Kenya camps.

Each Kenya camp is situated within a private wildlife conservancy for an intimate and private safari holiday experience away from hordes of minibuses and crowds of tourists.

A Porini safari holiday is perfect for the true wildlife enthusiast who wishes to get close to nature and enjoy an undisturbed personal adventure with a knowledgeable and qualified safari guide.  Guided walks with Maasai warriors allow you to become engrossed in the African wilderness and track the footprints of the big cats and their prey.  Night safari game drives in safari jeeps provide an opportunity to spot the nocturnal civet cat and caracal. Discover our Kenya camps. The camps welcome children aged 8 years and over (child reductions apply to children aged 8 to 16 years).

Various measures are in place based on their recommended protocols, including temperature screening of guests on arrival, regular health checks of staff, social distancing, deep cleaning of camp / vehicles and more.

The Porini safari camps are traditional bush camps with spacious guest tents and mobile tented structures minimising environmental impact but still providing comfortable accommodation with solar powered electricity and eco-friendly amenities.

The Porini camps within the Amboseli and Maasai Mara conservancies within Kenya give maximum benefit to the Maasai community who own the conservancies. The community not only benefits from tourism but this also ensures an added conservation incentive.
