Kenya & Zanzibar Eco-safari

Kenya      Zanzibar

This wonderful East Africa escape combines the safari experience in two contrasting ecosystems in Kenya, followed by exploration of Stone Town and ending with down time by the beach on lovely Chumbe Island.

On safari you'll stay at classic, small and tastefully designed bush camps and you'll be taken care of by expert guides. Amboseli Porini Camp offers both the enormous elephant herds of the national reserve and a private bush experience.

At Porini Mara Camp, you can watch the abundant game of  the legendary Masai Mara.

In Zanzibar explore the ancient streets and alleys of historic Stone Town and then relax on the highly-praised Chumbe Island Lodge.

Day 1
Take to the skies!
Depart from London Heathrow on the Kenya Airways overnight flight to Nairobi.
Day 2
Day 2
Nairobi - Selenkay Conservancy
On arrival into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport early this morning, you will be welcomed and transferred in a comfortably 4-wheel drive vehicle to the Selenkay Conservation Area.
 
Arrive at Porini Camp before lunch and check in for your 2-night stay with all meals, game activities and park fees included.
 
Selenkay Conservancy is located 10 miles to the north of the boundary of Amboseli National Park, with which it shares the same eco-system/habitat types. Selenkay covers 14,000 acres of land within the nearly 200,000- acre Eselenkei Group Rancht, leased from the local Maasai by Gamewatchers Safaris. The project's aim is to protect the original habitats and to encourage wildlife conservation as a means for the resident communities to earn a living, instead of farming.
 
Porini Amboseli Camp, deep in the heart of Selenkay Conservancy, is part of the the Porini group of camps set up by Gamewatchers Safaris in some of the conservancies in Kenya which Gamewatchers were instrumental in establishing. The camp’s remote location off the main tourist trail means that the the wildlife sees less vehicle traffic and therefore, behaves in a more natural manner. What's very appealing is that the camp accommodates only 18 guests at a time, who are able to benefit from the knowledge and experience of the Maasai employed as game rangers; trackers and camp staff.
 
Accommodation: Amboseli Porini Camp

Selenkay Conservancy and Amboseli National Park

Migrating species from Amboseli that had previously been killed or driven off land which was set aside for farming, have been encouraged to find sanctuary in the conservancy: recent years have witnessed a marvellous increase in wildlife numbers, with African elephants having returned after a 20-year absence. Expect to see African lions, Cheetahs and Leopards, along with Bat- eared fox, Mongooses and Porcupine at night. There are Giraffe, Thomson and Grant’s gazelles; Lesser kudu, Gerenuk and many more interesting mammals.
 
Birdlife is prolific, particularly in the marshy and swampy areas. Over 420 species have been counted within the region as a whole including an incredible 6 species of Vulture.

The Wildebeest are not the only tenants of the land - the Mara is also the home to among others, Zebra, Elephants, and to the big cats; Cheetahs, Lions and Leopards. Cape buffalo, Eland, Topi, Impala, Gazelle,Warthog and Spotted hyena, among others, add to the huge diversity of wildlife present.
