Porini Maasai Safari

This 5 night recommended Safari combines two properties that complement each other perfectly - Amboseli Porini Camp in the 'private' Selenkay Conservancy and Mara Porini Camp in the private Ol Kinyei conservancy, part of the famous Masai Mara ecosystem.

Both Safari camps are small and exclusive and run on the same principles - working closely with the local communities.
