“Authentic and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Staying here was the best way to have an authentic Maasai experience in a way that is comfortable for a western traveler. We could have stayed for so much longer! Great location between Nairobi and Maasai Mara.

Accommodations are traditional, natural-construction huts with stone floors, wooden beds, and mosquito nets. Bathrooms are shared and a short outdoor walk from the huts. You don't feel like you are totally roughing it, and don't feel any friction between being overly-pampered among the rustic beauty and simplicity of the local area. The special treatment comes through in the great care of the staff and unique access to authentic local culture

Food is delicious and our cook served us local specialties at the outdoor dining table with such warm hospitality that we felt like family.

We filled our days with short hikes up the hill for great views of the valley. Visiting the women's village a short walk away was a great way to experience real village life (rather than a Disneyland version you can run into on group tours). Campfire chats with our local guides were unforgettable.

This place is so much more than just a place to stay - it's a total cultural experience that made our entire Kenya trip.

The Maji Moto camp was so amazing! The rustic lodging, great food, and electricity-free hot showers (it's right next to a boiling hot spring!) combined to make a truly amazing week away that I will never forget! The nearby women's village simply cannot be missed. Although most of the women don't speak English, there is no mistaking their incredibly warm welcome as you enter the camp. If you're looking for an authentic and beautiful experience in the Masai Mara then this is the place for you. *Please note: the fitness center I rated is really the savannah and starter warrior training, and the swimming pool is the beautiful hit spring!
