Porini Mara Camp
Ol Kinyei Conservancy was the first community conservancy of it’s kind set up in 2005 and every tent pays to secure 700 acres with the vehicles being limited to no more than 1 vehicle to 1400 acres. The guests staying at the Porini Camps have exclusive access to this conservancy. There is a resident lion pride of over 20 animals and several leopards also have their territories within the Ol Kinyei conservancy and are often sighted by guests from Porini Mara Camp on evening or early morning drives. Cheetahs are frequently seen and it is not rare to come across large numbers of giraffe as well as Cape buffalo and elephants. This is a great location from which to observe the Great Wildebeest Migration (generally July to October), and there is another Wildebeest Migration from Kenya’s Loita Plains to the Mara which moves into Ol Kinyei Conservancy earlier, usually by January. The calving takes place there during February and March when the plains of the conservancy are teeming with wildebeest and a lot of “predator action”.
