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

If you like to get up close and personal with lions, elephants, zebras, cheetas, giraffes, etc., then this safari camp is right up your alley. The experience was eye opening and went beyond my expectations: From the great customer service and friendly nature of the Massai staff to the intense closeness to the lions, elephants and other animals.

Gamewatchers look after guests as though they are family. The adventure camps in Selenkay and Ol Kinyei conservancies offer a perfect way for a family to have a privately guided experience of Africa's wildlife from people who know the land and its animals. The conservancies are growing from strength to strength and it is great to support an enterprise that... More

We booked this trip with Gamewatchers Safaris, and their attention to detail, professionalism, and courtesy were outstanding. Julie helped me to book the trip, and we were not disappointed. The adventure camp was in a lovely location. Once we arrived at the airstrip, we were greeted by our guides Daniel and Richard, who served us coffee, tea, and cake, and... More

I spent two nights here in August and loved every minute of it, although as it happened I was the only person in camp I felt safe the whole time and entertained by the stories from the guides in the evenings. During the day the safaris were amazing, with Wilson and driver finding the best of the wildlife due to... More

Selenkay was our first stop in Kenya, therefore it was our (my Father & I's) first experience of Africa and what camping in the bush has to offer. First impressions were amazing, we loved every moment which not only was due to amazing animal sightings but also our intelligent and funny guide Daniel. Our highlights were the big herd of... More

I visited to the camp in late July and love everything there! From excellent game drive, impressive conservation work on elephants and lions, great people, superb foods and drinks, attentive services, welcoming smiles to clean and comfortable camp accommodations! Wilson, Richard, Chef and team, please keep the good work up! I will definitely visit Kenya again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp, Selenkay, is sited in the Selenkay Wildife Conservancy in the Amboseli eco-system. For those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags with an element of “roughing it”, this gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a much lower price than expensive up-market safari lodges. ... more   less
