The game drives in the National Park as well...

Because Porini hires local Masai as guides they knew the animals we saw--they could tell us about their kin. They loved the animals and as we were snapping away taking photos of the animals., the guides often joined in and would share the photos with...

This was my first visit to the Amboseli area and I was excited to see all the elephants! The camp itself is quite a distance from the park, which I wasn't prepared for, but was a great way to view the landscape. The crew was very friendly and kind as I was the only guest at the camp. The food...

This was our 4th safari trip to Africa, and our first time staying at Porini Amboseli camp in the Selenkay Conservancy. We spent 4 nights at the camp in early September. We certainly enjoyed our stay, but we have liked other camps better. The food was excellent, but somewhat plain for our tastes. The tent was very nice, a comfortable...

This was my 7th visit to this camp in the same number of years, and I reflect on some of the changes I've seen there. The camp remains pretty much the same - located in true acacia wilderness - no swimming pool, no television, no daily papers, no high security fence - so animals wander around inside the camp at...
