Amboseli Porini Camp is an intimate safari camp in the private 6000-hectare Selenkay Conservancy, on the northern borders of Amboseli National Reserve. The small, traditional bush camp is set in an acacia grove, in an unspoilt wildlife area. To preserve the wilderness, visitors are limited to twelve, so this is a place to both enjoy the scenic beauty and abundant wildlife of Amboseli and escape the crowds.

The Selenkay Conservancy is an ecotourism project that provides the Maasai community with income and employment and protects this important wildlife dispersal area. The conservancy contains a greater diversity of wildlife than the national reserve and enables game to move in and out of the reserve.


Nine spacious tents accommodate a maximum of 18 people. Each has a single and a double bed, large netted windows and is comfortably furnished. Tents are equipped with solar-powered lighting and private en suite facilities.

The main camp area provides comfortable dining and lounge tents. After a good dinner, you can have a drink around the campfire, watch the bright stars and listen to the sounds of the bush.


Morning game drives take place both in the conservancy and in the national reserve. Game drives are in open-side 4WD Landrover safari vehicles and there are no other vehicles within the conservancy. Late afternoon game drives are in the conservancy where after a sundowner, you can look for the nocturnal species on a night drive.  Elephant, Thompson's and Grant's gazelles, gerenuk, impala, oryx, lesser kudu, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, and warthog are among the wildlife seen in the conservancy. Carnivores include lion, leopard, cheetah, striped hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox, caracal, African wild cat, serval, and genet. Birds of prey are notably prolific.

You can get a deeper understanding of the bush on a guided walk with Maasai trackers. Visit a village and learn something about the Maasai way of life. (Village crafts are sold in the camp shop.) 


The income earned from the conservancy has financed community projects including a school and a water supply. Almost all of the camp and conservancy staff comes from the local community. Local labour built the roads in the conservancy.
