The brand-new Porini Cheetah Camp is the latest in the Porini portfolio of small tented camps, designed to maximize your wildlife experience. It is hosted by Jui and Nirmalya Banerjee who are avid wildlife enthusiasts themselves.
Like all the other camps, 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 is entirely solar-powered and the comfortable tents have 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.
The Ol Kinyei conservancy, where this 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 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. Game 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.
Fully Inclusive Accommodation
Porini Cheetah Camp is fully-inclusive of meals, drinks- gin & tonics, wine, beer, soft drinks and mineral water- and activities including day and night game drives, sundowners and escorted walks. There is also the option of booking a hot air balloon safari. Game drives (shared) are in 4×4 safari vehicles with expert safari guides and you will experience the wilderness without the presence of many other tourist vehicles.
