The thing about the adventure camps is not only all the tons of animals you see right there on the conservancy where you are one of maybe three vehicles but the very wonderful people who take care of you. I can not say enough about what a life changing experience this was. Camping is the way to go when you... More

We spent 14 days on safari with Gamewatchers (Selenkay-->Ol Kinyei-->Rwanda), They took excellent care of us and I couldn't recommend them more highly! The Adventure camp was well run and clean. Jackson, our guide, gave us so many wonderful facts about the animals. You could tell he has had years of intensive training and education within the conservancy and parks.... More

We stayed for three nights at the Ol Kinyei Adventure camp in October 2014, where we were greeted warmly by the staff. Wildlife viewing was fantastic with a huge variety of wild animals on the conservancy. The guides were well informed and worked hard to ensure that we had a great experience. The scenery is spectacular at the conservancy with... More

The warm welcome from the staff, continued throughout the stay with everyone taking great care to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable, also educational. Richard and Sylvester did a... More

I stayed at the Adventure Camp for 5 nights in October 2014 and it was by far the best safari experience I have had so far! The staff always went above and beyond - they were fantastic! Jackson (guide) and David (spotter) make a great team; their knowledge of the Mara ecosystem is unmatchable. They were enthused and interesting, managing... More

Having been born in Nairobi to parents that reluctantly returned to the UK when I was one year old, I had Kenya on my list of must see places. Finally 56 years later a group of friends invited me on the trip of a lifetime . I really did not know what to expect despite most of our group having... More

Gamewatchers is excellent. The food is amazing. The camp is relaxed. The people are lovely! The wildlife is very good and at times amazing. This year it was harder to find where things were but still saw cheetahs...old cubs...eating a kill, saw them at first light for great pics. I was by myself in the vehicle for 2 days which... More

Thank you so much for taking great care of us in August 2~6! I had a great time and have learnt a lot. Big thanks to the team, Jackson, Wilson, Isaac, etc. The camp was clean, comfortable and the hot swift shower was my favourite after a day's "African Massage". Though we woke up everyday at 4am hoping to see... More

Ol Kinyei was our last stop of our Kenya tour, we'd previously been to two other Porini Camps which had set the bar high, but they did not disappoint. Here we managed to finally tick off the last on our 'Big 5'/ 'Super 7' List, the Leopard! Our guides were Wilson and David who were a lot of fun and... More

We spent 3 nights at Gamewatchers Adventure Camp in August 2014. We were expecting fairly basic camping, and were surprised by how comfortable we were. The sleeping tents were cosy with proper mattresses, and each had a bathroom with loo and shower (you have to give the staff a few minutes warning for a shower so that they can heat... More
