Porini Kenya Private Flying Safari

This special 12 night fly-in safari is designed for a group of 10 people travelling together, with a private aircraft to transfer between camps. Ideal for those wishing to enjoy an authentic safari experience with family and friends, away from crowds and other travellers. Accommodation is in comfortable tented camps in Selenkay Conservancy (Amboseli), Ol Pejeta Conservancy (Laikipia), Meru National Park and the Masai Mara’s award-winning Ol Kinyei Conservancy.

Observe Africa’s “Big Five” and much more with day & night game drives (by 4×4), guided walks and sundowners in vast areas of private conservancy land. 

Your African adventure will start from Nairobi with a flight to Selenkay Conservancy (Amboseli), then continues to Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia, Meru National Park and then to Ol Kinyei & Naboisho Conservancies and the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve.

Selenkay and Amboseli are renowned for good populations of elephants, Ol Pejeta is the largest rhino sanctuary in East Africa and the Mara conservancies have the highest density of free-roaming lions in Africa. The conservancies are also home to leopards, cheetahs, giraffe, zebra, Cape buffalo and much more.

Meru is famous as the area where Joy & George Adamson raised and released their pet lioness “Elsa”, the subject of the international best-selling book ‘Born Free’ and the Academy Award-winning film of the same name. Despite this claim to fame, the Park does not attract a great number of visitors, so it is ideal for safari enthusiasts who want to enjoy a quieter yet still exceptionally good wildlife experience

At the camps all meals, drinks (wine, gin & tonic, beer, sodas, mineral water), day and night game drives by 4×4, guided walks and sundowners are included in the price which represents a huge saving on normal rates.

The safari itinerary for 12 days includes:

(Extra nights can be added at any camp, and accommodation can be arranged in Nairobi at the start or end of your safari depending on your international flight times).

Wildlife and Safari Highlights:

  • This is an authentic safari experience staying in small exclusive camps with spacious guest tents, comfortably furnished with private bathrooms, solar lights and located in attractive unspoiled natural settings.
  • Private flights are included between the camps to get you straight to the wildlife without spending hours travelling between the parks over rough roads.
  • Game drives from the camps are in shared 4×4 safari vehicles (not vans) with professional safari guides. (Private vehicles available at a supplement).
  • Walks with Maasai warriors, visit to authentic Maasai village, opportunity for night game drives, exclusive wilderness areas with no tourist minibuses.
  • The Porini Safari Camps are small and exclusive and run on the same environmentally sound principles – working closely with the local communities. All camps are specially designed to have minimum impact with no permanent structures.
  • The Rhino River Camp, is designed with its own private “meditation” area. Here one can unwind, meditate, read a novel or simply sit back and listen to the sounds of the river. Designed in contemporary style with subtle hints of Africa, the rooms are very pleasant yet unobtrusive and elegant.
