“amazing - no other words”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

we spend 2 nights at the Maji Moto camp, but really would have loved to stay longer. The experience was one in only. Close to the Mara national park (about 1 hour from the gate), set in Masai land, we were able to have a really experience the local life and traditions, without feeling an intruder, but more a welcome guest. The conversation with Sengale and Roman were great, the stories turned into great memories. We were traveling with 2 kids (5 and 8) and this was by far their favorite place they have been to. the warrior training, making their own bow and error and just roaming around making their own little camps.

the camp is simple but comfortable and in line with what is offered. tastefully decorated, keeping masai style.
I would recommend to this to anyone, who is not looking for luxury, but unique experiences and an opportunity to see how the masai live and what their culture is about.

The couple of days I spent at the Maji moto eco camp was so incredibly peaceful and genuine. It was such a great opportunity to learn and see so much into the maasai culuture and the masai hosts are so open and welcoming to allow you to do that. The location is like no other, and you can completely absorb your Kenyan experience there. I was able to take a cycling safari through the masai villages and through the loita plains, as well as a late, hot spring bath. There were so many activities available to you and you're masai warriors were more than willing to guide you through them. It was a wonderful stay with beautiful food and beautiful people. I wish the stay was longer and hope to be back on day.

We took our 7 year old daughter. All great. I did my early morning bird walk and late evening hot spring wash. There are new tents and comfortable mattresses. Food simple but good. We used their bicycles for a short ride while our daughter stayed in the camp with the Masai. They carved a bow and arrow for her and taught her to shoot. Lots of animals to see just walking around and driving near by, We live in Nairobi, so it is only a three hour drive for us... great for a long weekend.

My friend Alex and I visited there last October.
We did not know what to expect so had no preconceived ideas. The camp was small, in amazing position looking out across the Loita plain. Our guide (Ledama/Ben) introduced us to the 5 Masai warriors who were our minders/guides and cooks who were friendly and helpful. walking with Kisea to Hippo and crocodile rocks gave a chance to see and understand the surroundings and some wildlife. The night drive was great fun and we saw lots of animals we never expected to see and the chance to bathe in the hot springs at night was amazing. Some of them spoke very good English and so we were able to learn a lot about their beliefs and culture. The food was good there was plenty of time for relaxation and talking round the camp fire. The warrior training was hilarious. The people were friendly and really nice. I wish them every success with this camp which was quite different to anywhere else we went in Kenya or Tanzania.

Room Tip: sleeping in a tent with maasai warriors nearby to protect you from wildlife was exciting!

I spent over 4 months traveling thru Africa, and Maji Moto was definitely one of the highlights of it all. a sensational place, one of the warmest welcomes ever, amazing food, interesting safaris, night trips to termal water, talks over the bong fire...and the most important - people there became my family in a short time. miss you guys, hope to see you some other time. asante sana!

Maji Moto was the best thing during our whole trip, I stayed only 2 days,
if I can I will stay forever in Maji Moto. Massai are so nice people so friendly.
The whole area around the camp was wonderful, the food is excellent,
the Massai have really worked hard to make us feel at home.
Best of all is the hot spring.I hope to come again soon in Maji Moto,
and I'll stay a little longer.

I recommend Maji Moto everyone.

Maji Moto was the best thing during our whole trip (well, safaris were also awesome! :) We spent 5 nights here. Camp has everything you need, it's clean, there is hot water, comfy beds in the tents, the food is delicious and there are no mosquitos!!! The staff is wonderful, friendly, the Masai are the best people we've met. We truly felt at home. Walks were sometimes a lot to handle, but we loved every minute we spent around the camp, in the camp and with the Masai people.
Sankale and the rest of the guys - asante sana for everything, we'll never forget you!
Huge thanks to Eyes on Africa team also for making a perfect trip for us! :)
