Amazing experience not only on safari, but with the Maasai tribe members. We were made to feel welcome and part of the wonderful people. Visited both a national park and the local conservancy. Great experience all round.
Amazing Wildlife Viewing
As Porini Amboseli Camp is located in the Selenkay Conservancy very close to Amboseli National Park, there a two separate and very different places to observe a wide variety of wildlife. The elephants are in both areas were amazing. At the camp there is a platform overlooking a waterhole one of several which Porini fills when there is not sufficient water in the area. The waterhole is an excellent place for nightly sundowners. The tents are well appointed and comfortable. Bush showers are the norm at many Porini camps; but once one gets the hang of it, all works well. Food was plentiful and good. Our Driver/guide, Julius, and Spotter, Wilson, worked tirelessly to educate us and to find a wide variety of animals and birds knowing that we were bird lovers as well. We are looking forward to returning to Porini Amboseli Camp.
I don't know if we got extremely lucky or this place is really just this great all the time, but the animal viewing was unsurpassed. Every day, every drive we were amazed. Amboseli and Selenkay are gorgeous and must see places if you are visiting Kenya. The Camp staff and guides were lovely people. We particularly loved Edison and Melita as our guides. Extremely personable and incredibly smart and well versed on every single animal, not just the animals found in Kenya! The accommodations exceeded my expectations. The food was good, and there was always a cold Tusker available when we wanted it! Someone we ate dinner with was gluten free and they were always accommodated. I asked for no fish, and had no problem.
A Fabulous Start
Upon landing at the Selenkay airstrip we headed out directly on an all-day game drive where we probably saw 90% of the animals that we would see throughout the entire trip. We commented that if we had to leave Kenya at the end of this day, we would leave happy. It was an incredible day. Nicholas and all the Maasai were very friendly and informative. Seeing dozens of elephants at the watering hole for our sundowner and the sociability and humor of the Maasai on our nature walk were highlights of our stay here.
Best trip ever
We highly recommend the Porini camps in Kenya for several reasons. First, we felt safe & welcomed. Secondly, their ability to trek the animals and go off road, was amazing and fun. Third, the staff & food is amazing. Lastly, the highly campfires, just gazing at the stars and meet new people far surpassed our expectations.
