A unique “home away from home” with stunning views across the Mara in the only IUCN Green List Protected area in the Mara eco-system with some of the highest big cat densities and the location of the annual Loita wildebeest calving every year in February and March, with the local community members who know this land intimately as your hosts.
The 4 four-bedroom safari high end safari cottages are on a hillside location with spectacular views over the open plains below. There is a large wildlife dam down from the cottages which is a big draw for wildlife including lions and elephants. The cottages are designed to maximize on these views whilst minimizing the visual impact from the plains. Each Cottage has four spacious bedrooms, all with private bathrooms en-suite. A common lounge with a fireplace for the cold evenings and media room for kids to have a place to unwind, remote working, reviewing and editing the days photographers and so much more.
The design is open where practical – to ‘fit in’ with the surrounds and ethos of a conservation minded development, giving a closeness to nature but without compromising comfort and functionality.

Ol Kinyei Conservancy
This 18,700 acre Kenyan wildlife conservancy is on a tranche of land belonging to a Maasai community who leased it to Porini Camps to be set aside for the purposes of wildlife conservation.
Ol Kinyei Conservancy is home to two safari camps, the Porini Mara Camp and Porini Cheetah Camp and the Ol Kinyei Safari Cottages. The is also one small mobile camp called the Porini Bush Camp (high season only). Apart from our eco-camps, no other tourist vehicles are allowed into the Conservancy so our guests have the thousands of acres in the conservancy to themselves but we are also able to have game drives in the neighbouring Naboisho Conservancy which we also support by contributing to the land lease payments to the local Maasai community.
Maasai Mara Ecosystem
The Maasai Mara ecosystem is home to approximately 25% of Kenya’s wildlife. It hosts more than 95 mammal species besides being a recognized Important Bird Area (IBA) with 550 bird species.
Presently, about 70 per cent of this wildlife is living outside the gazetted conservation area -the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Adjacent land owned by local communities form key dispersal and diversity areas.
