Within 30 minutes of being picked up from our Safarilink flight we watched a cheetah hunt, chase down and catch a gazelle! It was action packed from start to finish. Our guide Jackson and spotter Dominic were very knowledgable and very accomodating, making it a unique experience we will never forget. We were even lucky enough to see a river... More

I was here on safari in Sept 2015 and it was AMAZING!!! I did a lot of research and chose Gamewatchers/Porini Camps over all the other outfitters. The guides were great, the food was top notch (I'm a little bit of a foodie....), and the service impeccable. I loved the idea of staying in a tent because it seemed a... More

This is not a review on a trip but on the customer service. I had booked a safari more than 1 year in advance. Unfortunately, I had to cancel a couple of weeks later - also more than one year in advance. I was able to communicate with my booking agent and Jake in Kenya. Due to my unusual circumstances...

The conditions are excellent, it's like a 5 stars service in the middle of the Savannah. The Maasai are very helpful and polite and don't worry about staying in tents, they are larger and more comfortable that many hotel rooms. The guides are very good and they do everything possible to bring you very close to wild life. Many thanks... More

Its marketed as a "adventure camping" but its definitely luxurious camping. There are white butterflies that flutter around the food tent and common area (there are hammocks). The tents are set up for you and come with your own private toilet and shower. Food is excellent, three course meals for lunch and dinner and buffet breakfast (pancakes and omlet were... More

Our trip to Kenya was fantastic thanks to the care given to the 5 members in our family group by the camp staff and our drivers and guides in the conservancies. All the trained Gamewatchers staff know the land and its animals intimately and ensured we had a rich safari experience with few other vehicles around. The food was fantastic... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp, Ol Kinyei is sited in Ol Kinyei Wildife Conservancy in the Maasai Mara.
