Ol Pejeta: Porini Rhino Camp

Porini Rhino Camp is located in Ol Pejeta Conservancy a 90,000 acre wildlife conservancy situated between the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snowcapped Mount Kenya The camp is hidden in a secluded valley and set amongst shady acacia trees on the banks of a seasonal river.

Porini Rhino Camp offers just six spacious guest tents, each comfortably furnished with en suite bathrooms. The camp is extremely environmentally-friendly with solar powered lighting and no generator. Game drives are taken in the camp's traditional 4x4 safari vehicles with qualified safari guides. Porini Rhino Camp was a finalist in the Good Safari Guide Best Safari Guiding Team in Africa 2010. Guided walks are taken on the open plains escorted by Maasai warriors. Night drives are also taken to see the nocturnal animals. All the Big Five (the endangered black rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion) have been spotted on game drives from the camp.

Outfitters who have clients looking to get even further off the beaten path should consider the 2 or 3 night camel-supported, Samburu walking safari that starts and ends at Porini Rhino Camp. The safari takes travelers deep into the Kenyan bush, provides excellent game viewing in a completely intimate setting and exposes visitors to the traditional Samburu culture.
