Maasai Simba Camp

Maasai Simba Camp is in the heart of the Maasai country, Amboseli eco-system. The camp is 100% owned and managed by the Maasai tribe. The camp is built by hand, authentic with a rustic charm unique from any other average safari camp or lodge in Kenya. The camp has been designed to give guests the feel that it is part of the Maasai homestead.

Maasai Simba Camp is commited to empower the Maasai community. A portion of your safari expense will support the local Maasai school, Merrueshi Village Health Center, Maasai Women Cooperative, wildlife and habitat conservation projects. The local primary school, high school, and heath center have been build and sustained using funding generated from Maasai Simba Camp. The camp is an eco-camp using solar as the main source of energy. Employment – our hardworking team of staff is made of locals only. At the end of the day, Maasai men and women employed by the camp will walk back home with a hot meal on hand for their family.

The camp offers 10 cottages and 2 Hemingway style Safari 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.

Our hardworking team of staff is made of locals only. At the end of the day, Maasai men and women employed by the camp will walk back home with a hot meal on hand for their family. We have scholarship fund set aside to support young people from the community seeking to further their studies in the country’s higher learning institutions. Many teachers in our local primary and high school were beneficiaries of the scholarship fund funded in part by guests who visited Maasai Simba Camp. 

Through the camp we have commissioned the restoration of 31 waterholes used by wildlife. We have worked in partnership with other conservation partners to mitigate human wildlife conflict in the area. We have, on regular basis, compensated the local community for crop and livestock damage caused by wildlife. Our camp is eco-friendly and uses solar power as a source of energy. During the rainy season we have harvest rain water and use it throughout our property.
