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

This trip exceeded all our expectations!!! We have been saving for Safari for almost 3 years. We wanted to go with a company that gave money back to the people of Africa and was highly rated in ecotourism so after lots of research we decided on gamewatchers. . Selenkay was top top notch!! I don't usually camp or like camping... 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

We recommend the Selenkey Adeventure camp to anyone who wants to see lots of animals, experience being close to nature without the crowds. We loved this camp, our guide Daniel was knowledgeable and very friendly. We liked getting to know our fellow travelers who we ate delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner with at the same table. We saw tons 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!

Mini vans, particularly crowded minivans lead to mediocre viewing with the best of guides. Gamewatchers / Porini has developed a way to pair the best of game viewing with supported 'camping' to provide a remarkable value. Buy the 6-day package: private flights, two amazing areas, and all details organized and included in the remarkably low price. Open vehicles and top... More

The staff are warm and welcoming and you feel like you are one of the family by the time you leave. The opportunity to drive off road is priceless and something that can't be done in the national parks. Saw lots of elephants and lions. The food is top notch so you don't need to worry about going hungry. Don't... More

Sorry about the delay in writing my review....
