Porini Adventure camp in Selenkay was wonderful! It is billed as a rustic camp with dome tents and private bathroom facilities around the back of the tents. I was a bit hesitant but decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did. The cost was very reasonable, especially compared to other camps in conservancies. The food, staff,... More

Gamewatchers (Julie Roggow) organized an incredible trip to Kenya and Zanzibar. We stayed at the Nairobi Tented Camp, the Selenkay and Ol Kinyei Adventure Camps, Il Keliani Camp (for a bit of luxury) and finished off with a stay in Zanzibar - at Stone Town Coffee House and the Breezes Beach Resort. Everything went seamlessly. A Gamewatchers representative awaited us... More

Extraordinary!, Superb!, Beyond my dreams! The wildlife was beyond belief. The rustic camp had the very best of game drives and food service. It’s been over 40 years since I last slept in a sleeping bag, but I was comfortable and it was so great to hear lions roar almost every night. I appreciated the way the tent was protected... More

Our tour guides were Amos and Daniel and THEY WERE FABULOUS! I would highly recommend this camp. I slept better at the Adventure camps then any other camps we stayed at. The food was fabulous but the best part was how amazing our guides were and the fact that my husband and I had the camp to ourselves. Amos and... More

None of our group had done a safari before so we didn’t know what to expect – and the entire holiday was above all our expectations. Our guides (Daniel and Amos) were absolutely fantastic and their knowledge of the wildlife was second to none. Everything from the open air jeeps to the campsite and the food was ten out of... 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

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp, Selenkay, is sited in the Selenkay Wildife Conservancy in the Amboseli eco-system.
