Maji Moto Eco Camp blends beautifully with the natural environment. All the facilities are built in a local Masai style with natural materials. There is no generator in the camp. We kept the thinks simple and traditional, with candles, lanterns and camp fire in the evening. Fresh food supplies are broth from Narok town with every arrival including fresh locally grown vegetables and fruits. All meals are prepared simply but delicious by a camp cook, blending traditional Kenyan and international cuisine.

Now we are already the second day in Eco Maji Moto Camp and it is just a dream. Everyone is very friendly and we have learned a lot about the Maasai tribe. It is also very nice to sit around the fire in the evening and listen to the stories of the Maasai. Also the view is just beautiful. Highly recommended.

I’m still in touch with the Maasai guys at Maj Moto : Ben, Sam, Hilary and James, way after leaving the camp. That’s what happens there. You learn the intricacies of Maasai life, the ways and customs, but moreover the people. The way there are, think and act. I think there one of the finest, balanced, genuine, interesting and interested people on earth. So much to willingly give and the camp plays a perfect host to this. The food is great (Ben’s a fine chef with naturally brilliant knife skillls) and a great bottle of stellenbosch claret for a very reasonable price was the perfect way to finish a day gazing across the Rift Valley floor in total tranquility. Days were spent bushwalking high in the hills with perfect views, visiting local villages and chatting with Sam the main guide whose perfect English put mine to shame sometimes! His father had passed on all the stories of the land and culture and over a couple of days I was learning how the Maasai thrive learn by living in harmony and with nature. Something we need to learn more about. Sam’s tales of the warrior training for 3 years living in the bush and caves were jaw-dropping, and I’m not going to spoil them here. Safe to say, you won’t be disappointed! I learned how to throw and shoot the Maasai spear and bow and had a mock battle with the locals (using plant stems!), great fun well as the most fascinating cultural experience. The camp fire each night and the songs, stories and dance around it enriched the experience perfectly and leaves memories of a lifetime. Thank you guys, I appreciate your time and friendship enormously.

A must-stay if you are looking to inject some culture into your time on Safari. The dining/ relaxing area has many places to relax with a book; shaded sofas, view point seating on the cliff rocks, a double day bed around the corner for quiet, a charging point for electronics, free teas and coffees and a good value simple drinks menu topped off with an amazing view. The tents were clean and kept cool in the day under the heat and were impressed with the memory foam mattresses inside. Each tent was tucked away in the trees and lanterns were laid out each night outside each tent. Outdoor showers use water from the nearby hot spring. Plenty of shower cubicles available. The food is also just perfect. Simple, wholesome and AMAZINGLY delicious! We've looked forward to every meal. James and our guide Hillary have been really friendly and eager to share everything about being a Masaai. We got to visit a Masaai Home and the school the camp supports. If you want to feel more connected to the cultural side of Kenya, you can't miss this!

Most incredible experience , not only was it a great learning journey but it allowed me to take a peak into the amazing and completely different life of a massai warrior. The massai people who ran the camp were extremely welcoming and inviting as we embarked on our 2 day stay at the electronic free eco camp. As a young person who’s life revolves around the blaring screens it was a breath of fresh air to take a step out of the fast paced living and into the wild . I would highly recommend to anyone who wants an escape from city life and to experience a completely different culture .

I loved this awesome experience in the camp.Lots of really fun activities you can experience. I think this is the best way to connect with a different environment.yearly morning trainings with archery and spear fighting with nature walks.Tents with shelter in case of rain and beds giving the camping vibe for everyone weather it be friends or family.Not only was it an exciting setting you get to feel fully emerged in the Kenya.Fully family friendly and we walked with the Masai people and got to learn about the different plants and what they are used for.

We stayed here with the Masai for 2 nights and I’m so glad we did! I felt like we got to connect more with the people and learn more about the culture than if we had just stayed one night. The Masai people were so kind and had so much fun showing us some of their culture. My son also brought a soccer ball with him and they played a game - they’ve got some ballers! Chef and Sam are especially good 😊 Thank you so much for a wonderful peaceful time. The tents are cozy and the view (especially at sunset) is amazing!

I spent 2 days in Maji Moto Eco Camp and enjoyed every second. The Loita Hills are beautiful. The food is delicious. The tent and facilities are comfortable and at the same time eco friendly. The Masai hosts are welcoming and very professional. We took walks during which they talked about their culture and I could ask all the questions I wanted. They also explained what the different trees and plants are good for. I could participate in a warrior training and also saw how they make fire. I highly recommend this place and hope to be back one day.

We arrived in time for a late lunch with spectacular views of the mountains and plains below. Our bags which were offload when we arrived were taken to our tents which were clean and comfortable. The tents all have traditional roof coverings which help protect the tents during the day (Hot) and night (more windy). The food was simple, nutritious and delicious. The staff were professional and very welcoming. We also got to experience some of their culture which was very interesting and unique. Would highly recommend staying at this cultural eco camp and will definitely be a place to stay again in the future!

Such a 1 of a kind experience learning about the Maasai and seeing the hot spring. The staff was extremely kind and helpful and shared all kinds of information about their culture! We were able to see the surrounding nature as well as learn beading and warrior training.

The most unique accommodation we have ever stayed in. Amazing hospitality, friendly Masai hosts sharing their life stories with the guests. Wonderful nature around, stunning views, comfortable tents, lovely showers with the view and delicious food prepared by Ben!! We are truly grateful to Sam who looked after us ever day, Hillary who made sure we are taken care of at the restaurant and Nash who shared with us some Masai crafts making our own bracelets. School visit is a must- very eye opening experience! Thank you!!!!
