Detailed description

This 6 night, 7 day Safari combines three of Kenya's finest wildlife areas:
Amboseli, the best place in Kenya to see elephants at close range and wonderful views of Kilimanjaro.


Selenkay Conservancy, walk with Maasai warriors, night game drive, exclusive wilderness area with no other tourist vehicles .


Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest rhino conservancy in East Africa in a vast tract of wilderness within the Laikipia area, overlooking snow-capped Mount Kenya. Elephant, rhino, lion and leopard all present.


The Mara, famous for the spectacular wildebeest migration between June and October every year and excellent for lion and cheetah.


Accommodation is in three camps that complement each other perfectly - staying first at Amboseli Porini Camp in the Selenkay Conservancy, then Porini Rhino Camp in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, followed by Porini Lion Camp in the Olare Orok Conservancy adjacent to the Mara Reserve. The Safari Camps are small and exclusive and run on the same environmentally sound principles - working closely with the local communities.
