Our guests’ favorite reasons for staying with us
1. Exceptional wildlife-viewing in private conservancies and protected wildlife areas across the country
Our conservancies are brimming with wildlife year-round. The truly wild animals freely wander in to our reserves, attracted by the tranquil, protected habitat, away from the crowds of tourists and minivans in other areas.
2. Porini Safari listed in Kenya’s Top 15 Experiences
The Kenya Tourist Board recently pronounced one of our Porini Safaris – the “Paka Kubwa Safari” – as one of the 15 best signature experiences in Kenya.
Paka Kubwa means “Big Cat” in Swahili and this eight day tour offers an excellent chance of seeing the big cats – and much more – by combining Nairobi National Park, Selenkay Conservancy, Amboseli National Park, Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the Maasai Mara National Reserve & Conservancies.
3. Your Visit Will Contribute to Sustainable Wildlife & Biodiversity Conservation
As a pioneer of conservation through community partnerships, we are committed to helping preserve East Africa’s unique wildlife and natural landscapes in close co-operation with local communities.
We believe that the best way to do this is to partner with communities to establish wildlife conservancies. Like this, local communities directly benefit from the expansion of protected wildlife areas while our guests can enjoy a rewarding wildlife watching experience.
4. Guided Wildlife Experiences with Maasai Warriors
Who better to guide you on your African safari than the Maasai people, whose presence has helped shape Kenya’s history for centuries?
Some of our safari guides and spotters descend from generations of Maasai warriors who have made their home on East Africa’s savannah plains near the most important game reserves in Africa. Walk with them through the vast conservancies and learn the secrets of the savannah without crowds of visitors and noisy vehicles interrupting your journey.
5. Family Tents now available at 4 Porini Camps – ideal for families and groups alike
The Family Tents are comprised of two Twin / Double Tents each having its own separate bathroom, with an additional lounge area between them, giving a large private space which is ideal for any family or group travelling together. They are simply priced as two tents, but have the advantage of the extra space.
6. Over the past 30 years, Porini Camps have been awarded countless times for our success in conservation and hospitality standards
Year after year, Porini Camps continue to impress, nationally and internationally not only with its high hospitality standards but most of all with the success of its ground-breaking community based wildlife conservation projects.
