Staying here is different from any other place we've visited in Kenya(and we've tried all ranges of accommodation from self-catering to luxury camping). We love how we are able to get close to the land and to the people in this camp. We stayed three nights and enjoyed the down-to-earth vibe, fantastic meals, how there was a nice balance between activities and downtime to be by ourselves; we had already visited Amboseli on our own steam so we were looking for a different kind of experience for our children. I think it's important to understand that when you visit the Maasai Simba Camp, you are not just a paying tourist but a guest of the community. This is not like Disneyland where you pay an entry fee and then try to get on as many rides as possible to get your money's worth. If that's your mentality, then this place is probably not a good fit for you. The staff here makes every effort to see that you are welcomed, comfortable and that your experience is as rich and interesting as possible. But the people you meet here are real people with family, chores and responsibilities; they are not here to entertain the tourists. Our family of four(children ages 12 and 15) was pleasantly surprised at all the diverse experiences offered to us--the daily nature walks, meeting the Maasai elders, buying beadwork from women's cooperative, local school visit, touring a Maasai home, fire pits in the evenings. Everyone was friendly and genuine; our encounters felt more like cultural exchanges rather than a "cultural show"(which I find disrespectful to the people being put on display for the entertainment of visitors) The whole experience was authentic and special. Both Tom and Kwenia took us on nature walks and these were probably our favorite activities of all because we love being able to hear the birds, smell the wild basil, and see animals as part of their world. I think of all our excursions here in Kenya, this camp will remain in our memory the most.

We spent 3 nights at the Camp around the New year and really enjoyed as a family (with a boy of 9 years). We did some walks with Quenia (excellent!), visited the school (very interesting), met the Elders and spent time with Masaaia women (very real and interesting experience). It was amazing and very memorable and helped us get some understanding of Maasaia people and their interaction with nature. The camp is very well run, the experience is very private and certainly memorable.

It's the worst quality/ price experience I have ever had. You pay 180$/ night to sleep in a room where you can't even flush the toilet (you need to use a bucket in order to do that) and where you have mouses inside. We bought the 4 days - 3 nights package with them. We really loved the walking safaris, one of the best experiences we had in kenya. On day no 2 we had "cultural activities" which included 1-hour meeting with the elder. We were supposed to meet the women association, which I was really excited about, but they canceled it, because supposedly it was a market day for woman. We stayed on more night so we could have done it the next day but when we asked about that, they said it wasn't possible. We were also supposed to visit the school, but they didn't offer us that. Onlty after I claimed that we were supposed to have a day full of cultural activities and we only had a meeting with elders, they agreed to take us to the school. So you have to be pushing for them to make the program you are paying for. On our last day we went for a safari. We were promised to have a safari in a jeep, but they brought a van, which is a worse experience. After reminding them 9again) that we were promised a jeep safari they brought a very dirty (with a lot of dust inside) and old vehicle. It was so noisy that it was our worst day of safari out of our entire trip (we visited 3 more parks after that). Moreover, the jeep's motor engine stopped working IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK, VERY CLOSE TO SOME ELEPHANTS, which are quite dangerous in Kenya. We had to LEAVE THE VEHICLE AND PUSH IT in order to make the engine run, while the driver stayed inside. Of course for this game drive we paid extra. Of course, the Maasai Camp is prety far from Amboselli - almost 1 hour. I don't reccomend this place, the Maasai people sit all day long and don't really interact with you. From the bright side: the food was delicious and the cook was a good man. In total: don't stay here, you can find much better places for this price.

I loved Simba Camp and I fell in love with the Maasai people! The Maasai people are extremely friendly and courteous. I had the privilege to have Kwenia take me on morning and evening walks. He is the most knowledgeable and attentive Maasai Warrior. The campsite is a very nice campsite. The cottage I stayed in was perfect for me. It had a separate bath area and two twin beds. The bed was comfortable, I slept really well.. WiFi worked most of the time, sometimes at night it was a little slow. But it was fine in the morning. I also used WhatsAPP and it worked well. The food was healthy and plentiful with plenty of veggies and fruit. The walks with Kwenia were breathtaking From seeing up close giraffes with babies, to Kwenia showing me how they make toothbrushes and toothpaste, the walks were fantastic. The sunsets were phenomenal. I was privileged to have a sit down with three "Elders" who shared their wisdom with me. Very special. I went to Amboseli on a safari with Tom from, Maasai Simba Camp, as my guide. ABSOLUTELY breathtaking and Tom was extremely knowledgeable. I could write a book on this experience.

Our 3 night stay in Maasai Simba was probably the best trip I've ever had, and wish we could have stayed for longer. Kakuta, Tom, Kwenia, Brian and Sam were so welcoming and accommodating from the minute we arrived. Although we only had 2 full days, we were able to fit in lots of activities. A morning safari walk with Kwenia, two school visits, a meeting with the elders, a village visit and a full day safari in Amboseli national park. The highlights were meeting the Elders, visiting the local school and the morning walks. Meeting the elders was very interesting, and with Tom's help translating we were able to learn a lot about the Maasai way of life. I will also not forget the school visit, the teachers and students were so happy and proud of their school. And don't think you can beat going for a morning walk and bumping into giraffes and zebras! Probably the best thing about Maasai Simba is that it just feels like an extension of the Merrueshi village. We got a real insight into the way the Maasai live, and it's nice to see how much Kakuta and the camp help the local people and school. If you are visiting, definitely bring some supplies for the village people and the school, we were very glad that we did as they really appreciated it. Also when on safari, make sure to make use of Tom because as well as being an excellent driver he is also very good at photography of the animals! Could not recommend this camp and the people who run it highly enough, would love to come back again in the future. Will never forget this visit!
