What can I say that hasn't been said by all the previous reviewers. I travelled with my husband and two friends to the Selenkay Conservancy and arrived after a short plane trip from Nairobi. We were warmly greeted by our Masai driver and guide with a cup of tea/coffee and cake then taken on a game drive before checking in to our tented camp. Our tent was delightful with a kingsize and single bed, flush toilet and a hot shower when needed. The camp is set in a ring of tents with a community lounge/dining area.
The conservancy concept was great and we appreciated the peace and quiet of the few 4WDs that were owned by Porini compared with the dozens and dozens that descended on an animal sighting when we were in the Serengeti.
We also loved the contact with the local Masai Village and the enthusiasm of our driver and guide Daniel 1 and Shadrack and their amazing ability to find animals so up close and personal.
You could spend your hole Safari time between the different Porini Camps and it would be the perfect Kenya experience.
