Porini Equator Safari


4 to 6 nights safaris combining Amboseli & Laikipia
This Safari combines two of Kenya's finest wildlife areas:

Accommodation is first at Amboseli Porini Camp in the Selenkay Conservancy, then Porini Rhino Camp in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The Safari Camps are small and exclusive and run on the same environmentally sound principles. All camps are specially designed to have minimum impact with no permanent structures.
