The Maasai Simba Camp has a true and natural environment and the staff go beyond their expectations to make one feel really appreciated personally. What's more amazing than having your meal in a well secured bush with Maasai morans in your company!! Kakuta treats each and every guest with all the attention they require and goes out of his way...

We, as a group of 20 students, spent seven nights at Maasai Simba Camp and have only good things to say. This is a wonderful camp, friendly managers and staff to greet you everyday with coffee and hot chocolate as an early morning call. It offers many and varied activities, one of them is the bush breakfast – a fantastic,... More

Rooms were nice and cozy. The staff went beyond what was required from them to provide the best experience in the savana settings! You can go for morning walks and hikes to the nearby Chyulu hills. Also an amazing breakfast in the bush can be arranged on request! The camp also is highly involved with the local communities. All staff... More

We came here with a group of 20 students with varying cultural backgrounds and were catered to in an exemplary fashion. The camp is idyllically quaint, hidden slightly off the beaten path, meaning that you are really able to experience the untouched traditional Maasai culture, be it through morning bush walks, spear throwing workshops or traditional warrior dinners (all included...

The Maasai Simba Camp was fantastic. It is a bit out of the park and hard to find if you're coming on your own, but aside from wishing I had brought my own pillow, the place was wonderful. The staff was incredible and they spent all of their time making sure that we had a good stay and that we... More

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
