Overview
More
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 two small permanent camps, the Porini Mara Camp and Porini Cheetah which between them accommodate a maximum of only 24 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.

Different in Many Ways. Stay at the main Porini Camp there. The terrain and the animals (especially the birds) are a good bet.

Beautiful area, full of amazing wildlife, and set apart as a conservation owned by the local Maasai people. It is a perfect place to visit while doing your part for conservation as well.

Conservancies are the way to go...by protecting wildlife and providing them with viable habitat. Only people who stay at camps in the conservancy can go in there for game drives - so not crowded. Wonderful wildlife sightings...lions, cheetah , many antelopes and birds.
