Maji Moto Camp is a great place to stay. I stayed there for two nights during a tour of Kenya/Tanzania in Aug/Sep 2010. It's in a terrific location, sitting on a hillside looking out across miles open country, and a good place to camp en route to the Masai Mara game reserve. Bearing in mind that this is camping in a remote location, the food and facilities were both good enough, and far better than in the public camp-sites, and the camp is well designed. This is not luxury camping, but somewhere in the middle. The Masai Mara team that run Maji Moto were so much fun and the experience is authentic (the Masai are one of only two tribes in the region that continue to live their traditional way of life, and they are very welcoming to tourists). We took a guided walk up the hill behind the camp, learnt about the different plants and the Masai culture, enjoyed terrific views across the plains, saw many small animals on our walks, took a 3 hour guided walk across the plains, learnt some archery and spear-throwing!, bathed in the hot springs, did a night game drive, did some traditional dancing and generally had a really fun time. Maji Moto was a great experience and a highlight of my trip.
