This morning you are transferred back to Selenkay Airstrip where you board a flight back to Wilson Airport. From Nairobi you connect with a flight to Ol Seki Airstrip where you are met by your driver-guide and transferred to Ol Kinyei Porini Camp within the Ol Kinyei Conservancy. This tented camp – set idyllically under the shade of acacia trees – accommodates only 12 guests for an exclusive safari experience that respects the core principles of eco-tourism in a completely unspoilt wilderness area. This magnificent conservancy offers visitors breath-taking of open savannah plains and forests as well as an abundance of springs, streams and rivers inhabited by an immense diversity of animals.
Like at Selenkay Adventure Camp, your accommodation within the Ol Kinyei Conservancy comprises a 2-person dome tent. Morning and evening 4x4 game drives with local Maasai guides, informative walking safaris and Maasai village visits are all part of the programme. Ol Kinyei Porini Camp – the only accommodation within the conservancy – also belongs to a Maasai community who have set aside the land as a sanctuary for the animals, which includes a large lion and leopard population. A resident lion pride of over 20 individuals and several leopards have their territories here, while cheetahs are frequently spotted on drives within the reserve. It is also not uncommon to come across vast numbers of elephant as well as Cape buffalo and giraffe. First prize, however, is to witness the Wildebeest Migration that passes through Ol Kinyei between May and October, when herds from the eastern plains of Loita join the Migration to the Mara Reserve.
The untamed Kenyan wilderness in its simplest and most adventurous form, Porini Camp preserves all the winning elements of the perfect safari: a superb wilderness setting, plenty of wildlife, expert guiding and low vehicle density. Staying on a private conservancy, you are able to genuinely connect with the landscape while your Maasai hosts ensure the camp runs like clockwork. Within the conservancy you also have the ability to drive off-road, as well as at night – ideal for seeing big cats when they are most active – which means your wildlife sightings are superb. At the end of each day, enjoy a sundowner in a scenic spot, savour the joy of sitting around the campfire below a starlit sky, and relish that very real sense of adventure you feel when sleeping out in the bush.
