Porini Camp is a semi-permanent mobile camp an hour from Amboseli on Maasai land. It has the feel of a true mobile camp with six dark green tents situated under acacia trees in the deep bush.
The camp is surrounded by trees and dense bush — arriving you feel as if you're really out in the wilds, which indeed you are. Small paths, lined with dry branches lead to six tents, spaced around the clearing.
Each tent is very spacious and has beds, simple canvas wardrobes and en suite bathrooms with hot bucket showers and flushed WC. In the center of camp the main dining and living area is under canvas and is simple with a few wicker chairs and dining table. Meals are served by the light of lanterns and food is simple but good.
The camp is perhaps at its most delightful in the early morning when large flocks of guineafowl and francolins come to the small bird bath to drink. With the sun shining through the trees you can sit and enjoy breakfast and the birds together.
Morning and afternoon activities include nature walks with the Maasai and game drives into Amboseli.

Where possible, we like to offer a range of accommodation for each stop of your trip, chosen by our specialists as some of their favorite places to stay. To help you make the right choice, we give each property a rating based on its facilities and service, but we also look for hotels with distinct character or a location that can’t be bettered.
Tortilis Camp has, in our opinion, the best location in Amboseli. The waterhole is quite busy and in the dry season you can often see elephant come to drink in the heat of the day.
