Porini Mara Camp is the only safari camp set in Ol Kinyei Conservancy– an exclusive 17,500 acre wilderness set aside as a wildlife sanctuary with a wide variety of species including big cats. The area has open plains, forests, rivers and stunning views.
The camp has just 6 guest tents sited in the shade of Yellow-barked Acacia trees along the banks of the Laetoli, a permanent spring within Ol Kinyei. The tents are spacious and each has an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and safari shower. With no more than 12 guests in camp, one gets the experience of real camping in the bush in an exclusive private wilderness, but with all the comforts required by discerning travellers. Food is excellent with home baked bread, fresh salads and high quality meals prepared by the camp chef.
Qualified safari guides enhance the experience by educating guests about the flora, fauna and people of the surrounding areas. Guests are taken on day and night game drives in custom built open-sided 4x4s. In the evening guests are taken to a scenic spot to enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down. A night game drive is taken on the way back to camp, giving guests the opportunity to see many of the elusive nocturnal animals. Maasai warriors escort guests on a walk in the conservancy where they can learn about how the various indigenous animals and plants are used by the community and how their way of life is intertwined with their surroundings.
