GUIDE ON PORINI RHINO CAMP IN KENYA
Nestled in a grove of acacia trees, in a quiet vale, within the 90,000 acres of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in south Laikipia, Porini Rhino Camp is a mid-level bush accommodation. The lofty, snow-tipped Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains form boundaries for the conservancy that is known to host the famous Big Five of Africa. Guests traveling in Kenya will be delighted to see that the camp makes good effort to make sure that human impact on the fragile ecosystem is at the minimum. Accordingly, you will see that the entire camp has structures made solely of canvas and other materials that can be dismantled and removed completely at any time if need be. Solar panels light the camp and heat water and only ecofriendly fuels are used. Waste is also disposed of carefully. The mess tent houses the casual reception welcome area, lounge and dining area. The 6 guest tents are all erected on platforms with spacious patios in front of them where AfricanMecca travelers vacationing in Laikipia can relax in lightweight safari furniture to the tranquility of their surroundings. A seasonal river flows close by and the calls of birds in the trees add to the serenity. Each of the tents is comfortable and roomy with a double bed, writing desk and a small wardrobe for your things. Ethnic rugs adorn the floors and subtle rhino artifact adds to the charm of the simple tents. The attached bathroom comes with a collapsible shower stall and deluxe amenities. Some of the tents have an added single bed for a family or group of three. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is one of the largest reserves in Laikipia wilderness for the sighting of rare black rhino, and while you are touring this part of Kenya, you must visit Baraka the rhino (means blessing), who is the face of conservation efforts for his kind. Blind in both eyes, a 100-acre fenced area has been set aside for him so he is protected and guests can visit and feed him. You could also visit the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary endorsed by Jane Goodall Institute. Located on a small island and accessible by boat, the sanctuary houses 40 chimpanzees that have been rescued or orphaned and relocated here for safety. They are provided with an environment enclosed in a mesh for its own protection. Some guests do not like the idea of fencing wildlife on the basis of restricted movement so Ol Pejeta Conservancy would not be an ideal wilderness for unrestricted guided explorations though it is a popular conservancy for families with young kids due to its pioneering conservation efforts. To learn more about the rare animals of Ol Pejeta and to see them at closer quarters, you could stop by at the Ol Pejeta Endangered Species Boma. Here you will see the last remaining seven Northern White Rhinos in the world. On your drive through the boma, you might also see some of the six southern white rhinos, Jackson’s hartebeest, Grevy’s zebra and their resident two black rhinos. But your trip to Laikipia with AfricanMecca would not be complete without the customary game drives. These exciting excursions are organized three times a day if you prefer, once in the early morning, in the late afternoon and at night. Special safari vehicles are assigned to you and the expert guide on board will help you spot the many fascinating creatures of the conservancy. You might see the Big Five, lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and rhinos. Look out for reticulated giraffes, zebras, impalas and warthogs. And you might see wild dogs, cheetahs, or jackals lurking in the grasses, looking for an easy meal. You could also go on bush walks under the direction of a Maasai guide who might show you how to track a rhino but at a safe distance because these animals have an advanced sense of hearing and smell and do not like to be startled. You will end your day’s activity with a sundowner. It might interest you to be informed that some of the proceeds from tourism that the camp and conservancy receive are redirected towards their preservation programs and for the betterment of the communities living there. So visit Porini Rhino Camp for a rewarding and memorable vacation in East Africa.
