Located in the 15,000 acre Selenkay Conservation Area, Amboseli Porini Camp promises an excellent wildlife experience with a huge diversity of game, ranging from cheetah and giraffe to lion and elephant. Guests are not confined to the Selenkay Conservation Area, the Amboseli National Park is also waiting to be explored. There are no permanent structures in camp, with the experience on offer reminiscent of that held by hunters of old. While the camp may reflect this kind of old world ambience accommodation is much more comfortable than that experienced by the big game hunters of years ago.
The camp, which was once a spot frequented by hunters, rests under the shade of Acacia Tortilis trees and is very small and intimate with only 9 tents. The tents are spacious and are nicely furnished. Guests can expect either a double or single bed, and an en suite bathroom that features a flush toilet and safari shower.
As there are no permanent structures in camp guests take their meals al fresco, enjoying the delicious cuisine under an Acacia tree or under the African night's stars while sitting around the campfire and reliving the adventures of the day. Lighting in camp and tents is provided by solar power and aside from the head chef and camp manager all staff are from the local Maasai community.

Activities at Porini Amboseli Safari Camp
Cultural interaction as well as day and night game drives.
That was great to start with this camp because we didn't get to compare it with Mahali Mazuri. The camp was kind of far from the Amboseli park but the reserve was still great thanks to the water well right next to the camp. Our guides were really nice and we had a really good time there.Read full trip review
