When my wife and I chose to book a safari in Kenya for our honeymoon, we decided that we also wanted to experience Maasai culture beyond the 3-hour staged tour of a Maasai village that many of the other tour companies offered. The Maasai Simba Camp seemed to be the perfect fit -- and in the end, our trip with... More

This location is a wonderful place for people to learn about Kenya Massai people, to meet them as great friendly persons and to have an intercultural contact. We visited the Massai Simba Camp for three days and with all the experiences we had there it seemed to us as if these days where three weeks. Hiking with them through the... More

What an unforgettable experience! We stayed at the camp for only a short time but we managed to fit so much in: a bush walk in the morning with Kwenia, the chief, and his warriors (was great to be on the ground with the animals after two weeks of safari vans!), a visit to the local school and the clinic,...

If you are tired of typical lodges, full of guests, modern and only pretending to be a real African place you must visit the Maasai Simba Camp. This place is truly unique! Located in bush, surrounded by Massai villages and filled with a pure nature. The camp is ideal for families with kids (plenty space for walking, running, playing) or... More

Lodges and game drives cannot compare to spending 3 days in the company of these Maasai people. We visited with the women, the elders, spent time with the warriors. We visited the primary & high school as well as the clinic. We walked the land in full view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, saw many beautiful Maasai giraffe and even some Gerenuk.... More

Everything in this gorgeous lodge was amazing!! Loved the Maasai people, staff were very friendly and informative. We felt like royalty in a small maasai village, thanks to the ever smiling receptionist on Saturday morning.

Dance with the Maasai, Walk with the Giraffes, Learn to throw a spear. Visit a school, meet the Medicine Man, learn how to bead. There is no other place to have this type of opportunity.

My partner and I recently had 3 months travelling through Africa and were very fortunate to have had our final week at Simba Camp. To be honest, as we were travelling we came across different 'Maasai cultural experiences' so we were expecting the worst, something setup just for tourists. Simba Camp couldn't be further from this, it is pure Maasai... More
