Porini Mara Camp can be found in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, an 18,700 acre Maasai-owned wilderness of open plains, forests, rivers and stunning vistas.
The camp itself sits under shaded of yellow-barked acacia trees along the banks of the Laetoli River and is comprised of just six spacious guest tents, each comfortably furnished and with en suite facilities. One is a family unit that has a central lounge connecting the sleeping areas. The mess tent is the heart of the camp and is where you’ll enjoy hearty breakfasts, light lunches and, after drinks around the fire, home cooked three-course dinners.
Being in a private conservancy, there is a limit of one vehicle for every 1400 acres, meaning exclusive game drives where you can see the local lion pride, cheetah, giraffe, buffalo and elephants. It’s also a great location from which to observe the Great Wildebeest Migration (generally from July to October), plus a smaller movement of wildebeest from Kenya’s Loita Plains to the Mara which moves into Ol Kinyei Conservancy earlier, usually by January. The calving takes place here during February and March when the plains of the conservancy are teeming with wildebeest and following predators. Its also possible to explore area on bush walks guided by Maasai warriors and drive in the nearby Maasai Mara National Reserve and the adjacent Naboisho Conservancy.
