With exclusive Porini camps providing the accommodation and spectacular game viewing on offer at no fewer than three of Kenya's prime game reserves, a deserved sense of excitement runs through this well-balanced safari.
Tucked away in private concessions far from the safari crowds, Kenya's Porini camps have long been a brand synonymous with consistent excellence and personalised service. Blending into their surroundings with minimal environmental impact, these eco-camps allow you to experience the raw drama of a safari under canvas but with all the creature comforts.
Begin in the game-rich Selenkay Conservancy, a private conservation area set just a few miles from famous Amboseli National Park. The emphasis is on spotting the region's big game but you will have time to stretch your legs on nature walks with a Maasai warrior and armed tracker, the best way to discover the secrets of the savannah.
Next, you will head for the slopes of Mount Kenya and the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. This diverse reserve of wooded grasslands, acacia thickets and evergreen forests is quite simply a wildlife paradise. Home not just to the Big 5, Ol Pejeta is also East Africa's largest stronghold for the highly endangered black rhino and even rarer northern white rhino - there is even a sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees!
Wrap up this extraordinary journey in what is often rated as Africa's greatest reserve - the Masai Mara. Game viewing is excellent all year round but little can beat the magical sight of migrating wildebeest and zebra between July and October as they pour nervously onto the Mara plains, followed closely by hungry predators. The tension increases as the migration crosses the Mara River where lurking hungry crocodiles await their next meal - this is an Africa safari at its most dramatic.
