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.

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.

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.
