Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Ol Kinyei Conservancy’s wildlife is exciting and diverse, with all the usual suspects from the Mara plains present here. There is one very large pride of lions in the conservancy as well as other, smaller groups of lions ousted from this and other prides. Local leopards are often seen on game drives as occasionally are aardwolves and wild dogs. According to Porini’s owners, Ol Kinyei is becoming a popular area for females to have their cubs away from the busy areas of the reserve itself. Big herds of elephants, sometimes numbering more than 100, are also a common sight. For birdwatchers,
