We had a two night stay at Amboseli Porini Camp. Having done a brief stay at Nairobi Tented Camp it was our first introduction to rural Kenya. The Selenkay conservancy is fantastic both as a concept and a location - we felt so privileged to be observing these animals up close in what is essentially your own private game reserve, guided by the Maasai who are not only brilliant at locating the animals but also at explaining their behaviour. They also provide a great gin and tonic sundowner!
We read of previous guests driving to Selenkay - we flew which was a very quick and comfortable route in to Amboseli. We were immediately met off the plane, given refreshments and taken on a drive before heading in to camp. The manager of the camp (Tony) has assembled a great team who could not have made our stay more comfortable. A day trip into Amboseli National Park was fantastic for seeing the vast plains of wildlife, in particular the elephants, but also highlighted to us how much better the Porini conservancies are for safari by not being restricted to roads or surrounded by lots of other tourist vehicles.
The whole stay at Amboseli was wonderful - we were asked how it could be improved and couldn't think of anything.
