The Conservancy is one of the pioneers of community conservation in Kenya. It's great to see the elephants (and many other animals)in their national environment living among the local community without fear.

We had three days in the Selenkay Conservancy and saw lions, giraffes, mongooses, zebras, ostriches to name a few! It is a beautiful place with very few other vehicles around.

This is exactly the sort of understated camp we like. It was comfortable - large en-suite tents with bucket showers and really comfortable beds. The wildlife viewing was exceptional not just in the park, but also just around camp - as we sank a beer...More

Masai giraffe, elephants, and a pride of 12 lions were the animal highlights we saw here. Many other animals as well.

As a private conservancy next to the Amboseli, with only one small bushcamp, it is the perfect place to have the Amboseli game to yourself, without the crowd of Minivans etc.
