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

My husband and I booked with Maasai Simba camp because of the great reviews and the authentic cultural experience offered by Kakuta and the staff at the camp. My trip was both a desired personal interest to visit other cultures and also academic in an effort to study and learn about the Maasai people to enrich the courses I teach... More

I have to say that, as an opportunity to get to know Maasai people and as a way to interchange cultures and to get a lot of really interesting knowledge about wildlife and the Maasai life and culture, getting here may have probably been one of the best choices we could have made. The people in the camp are purely... More

We stayed in a group of 4 friends at the Maasai Simba Camp for 4 nights and enjoyed every moment we spent there. As agricultural development students, we found fascinating to learn from a culture that has relied on livestock and pastoralism -not agriculture- as their main livelihood from age-old times. We started our trip with a very good time... More

If you are looking for a truly authentic cultural experience, jam-packed with local activities and hikes with the Maasai - this is the place for you. Don't expect to stay at a fancy lodge with A/C and other luxurious amenities because this camp is for adventurers who want to get a real taste of living amongst the Maasai. The food... More

I visited Maasai Simba Camp by chance while looking for a nice and good place to have breakfast, and guess what I was greatly impressed by the natural environs and good accommodation it has. It is quite cool and the atmosphere is most refreshing, if you really want to feel the real rich natural African adventure then visit the camp,... More

I stayed in Simba camp for 5 days in late September 2013. This is not about the accommodation but the entire experience! The accommodations are very clean, simple and give a true sense of authentic. It's like being in a countryside cottage. All beds have mosquito nets. In the trees surrounding the rooms there are curious monkeys jumping around in... More

It already start wit the arrival, away from the busy Nairobi Mombassa road the first beautiful giraffes can be spotted from the road in the direction of Amboselli Park. This was a unique journey. If you go for an authentic local cultural and safari experience, go for staying with the amazing friendly people of the Merrueshi Group Ranch. dont expect... More

Visited in June 2013 with a business associate and friend. The entire experience was amazing. We didn't feel like we were given a "packaged experience"... instead, we were given the opportunity to reach across cultures and spend time with some really exceptional people in an exceptional part of the world. Animals of all kinds everywhere, and the camp itself was... More

We were a group of 14 of family members and friends who had the good fortune to stay at the Maasai Simba Camp as our last stop on a 2 week tour of Rwanda,Tanzania and Kenya. The driving force behind this effort is a Maasai named Kakuta Ole Maimai, who went to Evergreen College in Olympia, WA, on a scholarship,... More
