Similar to its sister camps in the Mara, Amboseli Porini Camp has kept to the basics of safari and is a real find in what is a growingly expensive marketplace. With simple, but clean and tidy tents, all featuring fully flush loos and spacious dressing and sleeping areas, the accommodation is comfortable. The only apparent drawback to the lodge is its location outside the park…but we actually think that this is its main benefit! Outside the park avoids Amboseli's crowds. The game in the concession is actually very good and a stay just here will definitely give you all that you need without needing to join the mêlée going on nearby. Again, a great choice for those on a limited budget.
Amboseli Porini Camp - The Detail
Amboseli Porini Camp lies in the heart of Masailand in the exclusive 15,000 acre community-owned Selenkay Conservancy, well away from the crowds, so that you can experience a classic East African Safari, similar to the bygone days of Ernest Hemingway & Teddy Roosevelt.
Nine spacious tents have been sited among shady Acacia Tortilis trees, in a spot once favored by big game hunters. The tents are large and comfortably furnished, with solar-powered electric lights, and en suite bathrooms with safari shower, washbasin and flush toilet. Similar to an Africa Safari set back in time many many years ago, Amboseli Porini will remain a firm favourite of ours for long to come.
Being in a private conservancy comes with the rare advantages of allowing you to experience night game drives, guided walks and sundowners with views of snow-capped Mt Kilimanjaro, to get you closer to nature and the beauty of Africa. For those who are wanting to visit the nearby Amboseli National Park to see its famous elephants, the park is not far away and can be easily visited in a day.
