Our Twiga Safari offers an excellent chance of seeing the Big Five by combining stays at the Porini Camps and game drives in Selenkay Conservancy, Amboseli National Park, Nairobi National Park and Ol Kinyei & Naboisho Conservancies in the Mara Eco-system.  

Twiga means "giraffe" in the Swahili language, and the professional safari guides will take you on day and night game drives and guided walks to show you these as well as Africa's other iconic animals such as rhinos, elephants, the big cats and much more. A fun and educational visit to a Maasai village is a highlight of the tour, giving an insight into the Maasai culture and way of life.
