|Amboseli Porini Camp|
Selenkay Conservation Area is well off the beaten track and has not
been visited by tourists until now. It lies in the heart of Maasailand
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 twelve per day to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the
area and to minimize the impact on the environment.
Within the conservation area the following animals have been seen recently: elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, Thompson's and Grant's gazelles, gerenuk, impala, oryx, lesser kudu, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, striped hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox, caracal, African wild cat, serval cat, genet cat, honey badger, mongoose and ostrich. Birdlife is prolific, especially birds of prey.
Accommodation while on safari is at Porini Camp, within the conservation area. The facilities include 06 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!
Activities: At camp guests enjoy morning, evening and night game drives in custom built 4x4's. Sundowners at scenic viewing points, from where you can enjoy a drink watching the sun set over Amboseli. And escorted bush walks with Maasai warriors and safari guide, where you can get an insight into the Maasai people, their way of life and also learn more about the animals, birds and plants of Amboseli.
