Ol Kinyei Conservancy is 18,700 acres of wilderness which belongs to a Maasai community who leased it to Gamewatchers Safaris and Porini Camps for it to be set aside for the purposes of wildlife conservation. Ol Kinyei Conservancy is home to only one permanent camp, the Porini Mara Camp which accommodates a maximum of only 12 guests at any given time - making this not only an exclusive experience but one that respects the principles of eco-tourism. Located within the Serengeti-Mara eco-system, Ol Kinyei is renowned for its unspoilt and breathtaking scenery with diverse terrain offering on one hand open savannah plains and rolling hills on the other.

TIP: Pick a conservancy over the Mara itself. The guides and drivers can go off track and take you very close to the game. Brilliant experience.

Nothing could prepare us for the amazing experiences that we had here from wildlife encounters - and there were many, to the personal interaction we had with the Maasai people who staffed the Gamewatchers Adventure Camp where we stayed. This was our first visit and...More

Porini Mara Camp is small, just six comfortable tents, great guides, good food and attentive staff. Wildlife in the area is plentiful, and at the time we were there, many wildebeest had given birth. Lots of young animals around, including lions.
