Porini Cheetah Camp opened in June 2017 and like all the other Porini camps, the camp is a small-tented camp designed to maximize your wildlife experience. It is hosted by Jui and Nirmalya Banerjee who are avid wildlife enthusiasts themselves.
The Porini Cheetah Camp is unfenced and located inside a private conservancy far from the usual safari crowds. It has just six spacious guest tents. The camp offers Wifi Internet in the public areas . The camp is entirely solar-powered and the comfortable tents have fans and charging points for use in the day. Also ensuite bathrooms with hot shower, flush toilet and water on tap. The chef uses fresh ingredients to prepare high quality meals and even home-baked bread. Indian cuisine is available on request.
For guests staying at Porini Cheetah Camp, we can arrange to book return flights from Nairobi to the nearby Naboisho Ol Seki airstrip using the daily scheduled services of Safarilink, one of Kenya’s leading safari airlines, at the applicable air fares.
The Ol Kinyei conservancy, where this African camp is located, is exclusive to Porini Camps and plays host to just one other non-seasonal camp which makes for an extraordinarily intimate wildlife experience, with very few other cars sharing your sightings. The conservancy safari is a recognized hotspot for the big cats and especially cheetahs, which are seen regularly, often 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.

The camp was a perfect place to stay. The hosts, the staff & the drivers were exceptional. They went above & beyond what we received at other camps. The hosts ” attention to detail” is evident throughout the camp. We saw 4 of the ” Big 5” . the food was excellent. we loved everything. (Donna Smith via Porini Cheetah Camp Guest Comments Book)
Great Camp, great staff & numerous & varied animals. We will have visited many camps on this trip but our stay here would have by itself fulfilled our expectations of Kenya. (Kathy Brown via Porini Cheetah Camp Guest Comments Book)
Conservation & Responsible Tourism
The Porini Safari Camps are environmentally-friendly Eco-Camps that have been established in exclusive Wildlife Conservancies and are carefully managed to ensure that local communities, the environment and visitors benefit from our Conservancy concept. We ensure that the communities living alongside national parks and reserves derive tangible benefits from conserving the indigenous habitat for wildlife. Visitors gain a superior safari experience in pristine, game-filled areas where the wildlife is safe and protected. Read more about Responsible Tourism here.
We own and operate Porini Cheetah Camp within Ol Kinyei Conservancy, generating an income and employment opportunities for local people. The community is receiving a rent for the lease of the area by Porini Safari Camps, plus an entry fee for each tourist visitor. All roads have been constructed using local labour so that the members of the community gain employment from the Conservancy. In addition to the road maintenance team, Game Scouts have been employed to carry out patrols to see that the wildlife is protected.
