For generations Maasai warriors came to simba camp to gain a wide range of skills for animal husbandry, hunting, wildlife tracking, and how to bond with peers.

Habitat & Wildlife Conservation
"The survival of our wildlife is a matter of grave concern to all of us in Africa. These wild creatures amid the wild places they inhabit are not only important as a source of wonder and inspiration, but are an integral part of our natural resources and our future livelihood and well being. In accepting the trusteeship of our wildlife we solemnly declare that we will do everything in our power to make sure that our children's grand-children will be able to enjoy this rich and precious inheritance."
Dr. Julius Kambarage Nyerere
Building from Nyerere's words of wisdom and inspiration, Maasai Simba Camp is dedicated to wildlife and habitat conservation in Amboseli ecosystem. We are working in partnership with Maasai ranchers to insure that local wildlife is protected. Maasai Simba Camp is involved in human-wildlife conflict and insures that the land owners are compensated fairly for cows and goats lost to lions. We also work in partnership with other conservation groups such as the Big Life Foundation with a Game Scout Unit to patrol, monitor, and protect wildlife in the area. Our work has been a significant compliment to habitat and wildlife conservation in the Amboseli ecosystem.
Meeting with partners, Merrueshi Ranchers Association and Community Game Scout Unit.
There is intricate relationship between the Maasai and Africa’s wildlife. The Maasai have coexisted with lions and elephants since time immemorial. Maasai Simba Camp inspires the local Maasai landowners to care and protect their land and wildlife for generations to come.
