This was the first of three Porini camps we stayed at during a 10-day safari and everything about it was amazing. The tents and facilities are awesome. You fly in and land on a dirt airstrip and it has a solar-powered loo with flush toilet! Everything about our time there was so wonderful, and we saw so many animals that...

Our stay at Selengay was absolutely wonderful! The usual fabulous Porini service which is really impressive made the two nights there simply fab! Your manager Tony couldn’t have been more accommodating ( and what a nice chap!!) - he even sent the car to meet us (we would have surely got terribly lost otherwise as driving in from Taveta). Anyhow...

We had a great experience at the camp - living in the tents with the unique shower arrangements, the warm hospitality of the staff, food catered to suit your tastes and of course the local knowledge and expertise of the Masai guides; all made it an extremely interesting and different experience. The game drives in the National Park as well...

What I liked: where to begin? Staying on the Selenkay Conservancy was a wonderful experience. 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...
