Where better to experience local culture than an authentic Maasai village?
Experience the culture
Nestled on a hilltop deep in Masai lands and overlooking vast savannah plains, Maji Moto Eco Camp is a small, environmentally-sensitive retreat.
Operated by Masai people from the nearby village of Maji Moto, a stay here will immerse you not only in the intense natural beauty of the Loita Hills, but also in the ancient culture and knowledge of the Masai.
maji moto location
Maji Moto, in the Loita Hills of southwest Kenya, is a 3-hour drive from Nairobi and on the way to the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve.
The drive from Nairobi includes the stunning views from and descent down the Great Rift Valley Escarpment. For travelers intending to visit the Masai Mara, Maji Moto is a perfect place to rest and acclimate yourself to the region, and its only one hour from the Sekenani Gate.
Sankale Ole Ntutu is your chief host here at Maji Moto Eco Camp. He is a Masai tribesman from the Purko clan.
Born in Maji Moto, his grandmother nurtured a passion in him for knowledge of the natural world, its plants and animals, and their ways and uses. The Masai staff are quick to share their world, and visits to their compounds, school or the village happen as easily as walking a path, listening to Sankale as he leads you through his homeland.
