"You're chance to see one of the last Northern White Rhino's (at the time of writing) which highlights the danger of extinction to such a beautiful animal!"
Once a species that roamed far across central Africa, there are - at time of writing - just three Northern White Rhinos left in the world. Victims of poaching, intensive farming and civil war, their numbers have been decimated until only this tiny herd remains, safe – for now – in Ol Pejeta Conservancy. There are some experiences in life that cannot be missed, rare opportunities that have to be grabbed with both hands before they are gone forever. A visit to Porini Rhino Camp to see the last of these magnificent animals has got to be one of them.
Found within the vast 90,000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Porini Rhino Camp is located between the dramatic Aberdare mountain range and the soaring peak of Mount Kenya. With only seven tents it offers true seclusion and an authentic safari experience whilst retaining all the comforts of home with beautiful furnishings and ensuite facilities. The varied landscape is home to some of Kenya’s most striking wildlife, including the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhino. With day and night game drives, visits to the conservancy’s chimpanzee sanctuary, the option of an exclusive lion tracking excursion and, of course, the chance to see the world’s last Northern White Rhinos, this is a truly exceptional safari experience.
Sustainability, conservation and an eco-friendly lifestyle are the foundations on which Porini Rhino Camp is built. The camp is designed to have as low an environmental footprint as possible. Semi- permanent tents blend into the surroundings, unfenced areas allow wildlife to move freely and solar energy is used extensively. The entire camp adheres to strict environmental policies for water, solid waste and sewage and all staff and guests are encouraged to conserve as much energy as possible through initiatives such as “towel talks” to encourage a reusable attitude.
As part of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Porini Rhino Camp plays a significant role in conservancy operations and profits from camp are channelled straight back into vital conservation and community development projects. As all Porini Camps believe that ongoing conservation depends on harmonious relationships between wildlife and man, the camp also engages in ongoing community education in the importance and benefits of conservation. By providing jobs for local people, supporting local schools and healthcare and developing community infrastructure, Porini Rhino Camp is part of an organisation that is paving the way for grassroot-level conservation. Guests to Porini Rhino Camp can be assured that their visit is supporting these ground-breaking initiatives.
