Day to Day Itinerary

Days 1-2

Escape the hoardes

Arrive eagerly in Nairobi, where your welcoming guide transfers you to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Porini Amboseli. Escape the hoardes of tourists when you settle into Porini’s tented camp in this private conservancy.

Awake to the pleasing aroma of coffee and biscuits before setting off on your safari activity. Back at camp, enjoy a delicious meal under an Acacia tree while marvelling at the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The afternoon game drive stops at a stunning viewpoint for sundowners before continuing as night drive. A thrilling opportunity to see nocturnal predators on the prowl for dinner. Return to camp where your delightful dinner awaits  in the charming mess tent.

Days 3-4

Explore the Ol Kinyei

After an expertly prepared bush breakfast, transfer to your next gameviewing springboard - Porini Mara. This modest camp is situated in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy surrounded by thriving savannah plains, riverine forests, rolling hills and tranquil rivers.

Encounter Maasai in traditional garb, who share their incredible knowledge about the land and wildlife on up-close and intimate nature walks.  Enhance your game viewing experience in Porini’s classic safari vehicle (not a minibus) or soar above the plains in a hot air-balloon.

Return to camp and a warm welcome from the camp manager before freshening up in your en suite tent. Enjoy a delicious sundowner on the bank of the Laetoli River before tucking into a delicious meal prepared with the freshest ingredients, served by friendly staff.  

Days 5-6

Experience excellent big cat sightings

Today, you drive to Olare Orok Conservancy where  Porini Lion Camp awaits you on the banks of the Ntiakatiek River. The area is renowned for extensive predator and big game sightings, including elusive leopard and a variety of graceful antelope.

Visit during the dry months of August and September to witness the annual spectacle of wildebeest migrating to the dryer areas of Kenya in search of tender new grass shoots. After a day of exploring Kenya's jewel, the neighbouring Masai Mara, swop campfire tales with your fellow adventurers in the traditional boma.

Day 7

Say goodbye to new friends

It is time to say farewell to the friendly staff and fellow travellers who have shared your adventure. Head back to Nairobi Airport to begin your journey home, carrying with you the precious memories of the sights and sounds of Amboseli. Close your eyes and recall the stories shared beside a crackling campfire underneath the vast African sky.

"These fantastic eco camps offer so much more than just game drives – explore the African bush on foot, meet the local Masai and get right up close to the wildlife on off road game drives. One of my favourite tours for the migration."
