Porini Rhino Camp - Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Laikipia

Visit Porini Rhino Camp

This small and intimate safari eco- 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 Kenyan safari camp in Ol Pejeta consists of just nine 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 newest tents are the family units that are H shaped and made of high quality canvas,  they are very spacious, each wing measuring 64 square metres and the lounge is 16 square metres. Each of the 2 units consists of two rooms with a lounge in between. Each of the two rooms has a king size bed and a single bed, The high-quality, spacious tents are tastefully furnished and have solar-powered lighting, ensuite facilities (with hot shower and flush toilet) and a private veranda. The family units are ideal for families or group of friends traveling together and are at the same price per person as our other tents. The camp welcomes children aged 8 years and over (see Prices Information for more details).

The camp has the benefit of a wildlife viewing hide which enables guests to observe and photograph wildlife safely, yet in close proximity. The hide has been carefully placed to enhance wildlife-viewing right in front of camp, and with the peaceful setting and the animals freely strolling in, guests can really immerse themselves in the surroundings and feel part of nature.

The safari camp is fully inclusive of meals, drinks (gin & tonics, beer, wine, sodas and mineral water) as well as day and night shared game drives, escorted walks, sundowners, a visit to Baraka the Black Rhino & Information Centre and a visit to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The Conservancy ensures excellent game-viewing and safari game drives – with “proper” open-sided, off-road (4×4) safari vehicles and expert safari guides.

In addition to the activities mentioned above (game drives, walks, sundowners, visit to Baraka the Black Rhino & Information Centre and visit to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary) there are a number of other optional activities which can be booked, with the income contributing to the Conservancy’s running costs: The Endangered Species Boma, Lion Tracking, Riding with Rhinos and Junior Rangers.

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 staff is drawn from different Kenyan communities including members of the Maasai community from our conservancy projects at Selenkay in Amboseli and Olkinyei and Olare Motorogi in the Mara. The camp adheres to strict eco-friendly and responsible eco tourism principles.

Limited laundry is available at no charge. Laundry is done by hand and dried outdoors, therefore turnaround time is dependent on the weather. Out of respect to local culture and customs, we do not wash underwear. Washing powder is provided in all of our guest rooms should guests wish to wash their own.

Our guest's comments

  • "Enjoyed the wonderful diversity of animals - the highlights being the rhino and the cheetah with her cub. We loved the long morning game drives, with breakfast out, and the waterhole at the camp (despite the visits from lion at night). Best bucket shower in Africa! thanks to everyone for making it a special stay. Asante sane."

  • "Wonderful time! So many rhinos, we couldn’t believe how lucky we were. Every one was so  great!"

  • "Here for 3 days at the beginning of a Kenyan odyssey and the place will always be the most special because this is where we got engaged in front of elephants at the waterhole. Thank you …. Everything was perfect -all the animals, our tent, the delicious food and refreshing drinks and our excellent guides. Thank you to the entire team."
