Overview

Maji Moto eco camp is a wonderful experience set in the heart of a Masai Village on the Loita Hills. The Camp is sensitively managed by the local community and strikes just the right balance offering a reasonable level of comfort, a friendly welcome and an insight into the Masai way of life. This is a cultural experience and by its nature, it is not for everyone. Some of our clients love it and others less so. Generally it suits those of a more outgoing nature who are very interested in learning about different cultures.

Structures in camp (kitchen, dining area, showers and toilets) are built Masai-style using only local materials such as branches and stalks, grass, cow dung and stone.

We tend to provide our own camping setup here to guarantee a consistent level of comfort and service, but this is still a basic trekking style camping setup rather than a luxury safari camping setup.

There is no generator in the camp. Candles, lanterns and camp fire are used for light in the evening. Small solar panels provide electricity for recharging cameras and mobile phones.

Careful water usage in this dry ecosystem is very important. Toilets are long-drop design to minimize waste water. Water for showers is brought by donkey from the natural hot spring in the village, so water heaters are not needed.

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.

    Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!

    We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.

    Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
