Porini Camp is in the Selenkay Conservation area - a few miles north of Amboseli National Park. It is an important dispersal area and rangeland for wildlife migrating out of Amboseli. Selenkay Conservation Area is well off the beaten track and has not been much visited by tourists. It lies in the heart of Maasai land and the animals are truly wild and not yet habituated to the presence of vehicles. The numbers of tourist visitors are being limited to a maximum of eight per day to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimise the impact on the environment.
Accommodation at Porini Camp is within the conservation area. The facilities include 6 spacious guest tents, comfortably furnished and with en suite bathrooms including shower, wash basin and flush toilet. Tents have solar-powered electric lighting. The camp is small and is on the lines of the traditional luxury safari camp but with more comfortable bathroom arrangements than were available to the big game hunters of earlier years! The camp is private and only available to clients on the escorted safari itinerary.
