The Porini Camps in Kenya are situated within exclusive wildlife conservancies in Selenkay, Laikipia and the Mara.
Each of our Porini Camps offer an intimate safari experience away from the crowds of tourists in minibuses.
A Porini Safari is the ideal safari for the true wildlife enthusiast who wishes to get close to nature to enjoy an undisturbed personal adventure with a knowledgeable and qualified safari guide, using customised open-sided 4×4 safari vehicles and escorted nature walks in private Conservancy areas.
When you visit any of the Porini Camps, you are directly supporting the country’s biodiversity— and Kenya is one of the leading African countries in making efforts to achieve success in the conservation of the iconic African wildlife and the natural environment.
Africa's wildlife is under threat from loss of habitat due to ever-increasing demands on land. As the human population grows, natural habitat is being lost to housing, agriculture and industry.
For over three decades we have been working with local communities in Kenya to increase habitat for wildlife through our conservancy concept. It is the income of low-impact eco-tourism from our small Porini Safari Camps and our "Adopt An Acre" plan that pays for the land to be kept for wildlife.
With a severe downturn in tourism due to the Covid-19 pandemic, funds raised through our Adopt An Acre plan are vital for the future of our wildlife conservancies.
Please Adopt An Acre (from just $35) to help us ensure wildlife stays protected. Adopt 30 acres or more and you will receive a credit for the exact amount donated to be used towards payment for a stay at any Porini Camp – so it's like a downpayment on a future safari, with crucial conservation benefits thrown in for free!
The Porini Camps are environmentally-friendly Eco-Camps which have been established in exclusive Wildlife Conservancies and are carefully managed to ensure that local communities, the environment and visitors benefit from our Conservancy concept.
