In the main mess tent, a lounge and dining area is equipped with comfy sofas, armchairs and beanbags for guests to relax in, where throughout the day, with tea, coffee and water provided for.

Additionally, the bathrooms are at the back of the tent, separated with a large zipped flap. Inside, sits a flushing toilet, a wash basin and a classic ‘bucket shower’ with hot water at your disposable after an exciting day on safari.
Situated in the Selenkay conservancy, Porini Amboseli Camp offers a range of alternative activities to camps inside the park.
