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 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.

Abundance of animals in a lush landscape of rolling hills and green pastures. The wildebeest had migrated into this conservancy from the Masai Mara reserve in February so we had everything on our doorstep. Wonderful trip

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.

This conservancy is another example of the exceptional efforts being made to conserve the wildlife of Africa and it's habitat. They are working side by side with the Maasai people to sustain the land. Their efforts are to be commended.
