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.
