Overview
More
Masai-owned conservancy and safari camp near the Amboseli National Park.Selenkay Conservancy shares the same eco-system as Amboseli National Park and is established on land leased from the local Maasai by Gamewatchers Safaris & Porini Camps with the aim of protecting the wildlife habitat and encouraging wildlife conservation as an alternative to farming as a means for the local population to earn a living. Migrating species from Amboseli previously killed or driven off land set aside for farming are now able to make the conservancy their home. Recent years have witnessed a significant increase in wildlife numbers with elephants returning to Selenkay after a 20 year absence.

Lovely land with wildlife near the Amboseli National Park - stayed with Porini Amboseli. Saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, cheetah, lions, and there are waterholes where the wildlife gather.

Our camp, Porini Amboseli is set in the Selenkay conservancy. It really felt like we had a private place that was secret from the rest of the world visiting Amboseli. Fantastic!

We loved our game drives through Selankay and were pleased to have contributed to its continued efforts to preserve a safe space for wildlife. The views of Kilimanjaro were phenomenal.

It was great to be in the conservancy. We got to go on wildlife walks and night drives. The guides went the extra mile to teach us about tracking, insect life, bird life, etc. not just the large mammals.

Sitting in the midst of a couple of hundred elephants as the calm giants walk all around you, coming close but never touching your vehicle, is pure bliss. We saw many, many elephants on the conservancy and also a pride of ten lions. We also...More
