Adventure Tours with the Maasai!

Recreational Activities

At Simba Camp the challenge is not what to do - it's figuring out how to do it all. Walk with giraffes, go on Safari, learn to throw a spear, shoot some arrows, try your archery skills, discover your beading talent, play volleyball and soccer on a sandy river bed, hike Chyulu hills, watch the sunset, explore the galaxy at night, or you can just relax at the camp. Your comfort is our top priority.

Safari / Nature Walk with Maasai warriors

Mornings typically begin with a bush walking safari lead by the Maasai warriors. This is your opportunity to get up close and personal with wildlife such as giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, gazelles and over 400 species of birds that roam freely in this unspoiled land of the Maasai. The Maasai know the African savanna in a way no one else does and the warriors will interpret everything from footprints, animal droppings, animal noises, and more. Leave your fears at home and experience Africa the Maasai way. Absolute security is guaranteed with our professional and knowledgeable guides! Returning from the hike, we’ll enjoy homemade breakfast together.

Maasai Village Experience

Shortly after breakfast immerse yourselves into the Maasai culture. This is your chance to visit a traditional Maasai tribal village. Meet and interact with village women and elders. See what a traditional Maasai village looks and feels like, and learn how the family social structure works. Some time you maybe invited to milk a cow or sip a cup of Maasai chai with the villagers. The village experience is absolutely authentic and pleasant; a much different experience from the usual 2-hour hokey village experience set up for hundreds of tourists near the wildlife park. No commercial angle whatsoever. We offer you the real deal.

Make beads with local women

Intricate beadwork has been an art form of Maasai women for centuries. You'll have the opportunity to participate in the bead making sessions facilitated by the Maasai Women Cooperative. Meet and interact with Maasai women and learn techniques and the meaning of bead making in the Maasai tribe. You might be surprised to discover your beading talent!

Visit the local school children

One of the days we will visit a local primary school and high school to interact with students and teachers. Visitors are welcome to play soccer or volleyball match with local sport teams. You are also welcome to volunteer and tutor or teach English or any other subject of your interest. We will also visit the village health center and meet the nurses. Meeting with village leaders, herbalists, teachers, nurses will allow you to learn just about every aspect of the Maasai community and its way of life.

Full day Safari to Amboseli National Park

Shortly after an early breakfast we will drive to Amboseli National Park, which covers 150 square miles in southern Kenya, not far from the Tanzanian border. Amboseli is at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa standing 19,340 feet above sea level. In addition to over 1000 elephants there are zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, impala, leopards, lions, hippos, antelope, warthogs, hyenas, cheetah, and buffalos all gather in the haven of the park.

Sundowners

There is no better way to enjoy African sunset than at Maasai Simba Camp. The Maasai warriors will walk you to an epic observation point where you can get a panoramic view of the African savannah with Mt. Kilimanjaro in the south and the big orange sunset as it slips away from the wide African sky.

Are you an Astronomy enthusiast?

If the answer is yes, then Maasai Simba Camp is the place for you. Explore the galaxy with millions of stars glowing across the night African sky. Bring your own telescope or borrow one from us. We will provide all the other comfort that you might need.

Bird Walk

Amboseli eco-system is home to over 400 species of birds many of which live in and around the park. During your stay at Maasai Simba Camp you’ll meet a wide range of colorful birds that surrounds the Kiboko River. Common birds in the camp includes Sunbirds, Flycatchers, White-bellied Go-away-bird, weavers, Kingfishers, superb starlings, hoopoe bird, Lilac-breasted Roller, Ibis, Awl, and lots of birds of prey.
