About
Description
Maasai Simba Camp is in the heart of the Maasai country. The camp is 100% owned and managed by the Maasai tribe. The camp is built by hand, authentic with a rustic charm unlike any other average safari More camp or lodge in Kenya. The camp has been designed to give guests the feel that it is part of the Maasai homestead. The camp offers 10 cottages and 2 Hemingway style tents - each with its own private veranda. Each tent is beautifully furnished with all the usual amenities; it's simple and elegant at the same time. The camp offers clients the most authentic cultural and safari experience in Kenya. Activities include daily walking safari lead by the Maasai warriors, excursion to Amboseli National Park, meeting with Maasai elders and the women cooperative. Your stay at the camp brings tangible benefits to the Maasai community. The camp operates a local school, health center, and clean water project for the village. This is one of the most remarkable-and unique-journeys you'll ever take to Kenya. Less
