Peace in the Wilderness
The peaceful surroundings of our property makes you want to pause, take a deep breath and enjoy the tranquility of this peaceful retreat. The camp was built with nature in mind. The native trees and vegetation are left intact, making it a perfect foraging garden for giraffes, velvet monkeys, and an estimated 400 species of birds.
The camp is a symphony of African birds. The songs of weavers, go-away-birds, starlings, African hoopoe, the franklins, lilac-breasted roller, woodland king fisher, red and yellow barbet, and woodpeckers filled the air, all under the canopy of indigenous acacia trees. There’s no better place to see African birds than right here at Maasai Simba Camp.
