In February I met Susan when she was visiting San Francisco. I learned that she ran Nariku Travel, and since I was already planning a trip to Kenya I gave her a ring as soon as I arrived. The next thing you know, I was staying in the beautiful countryside in Kenya with Susan and her husband Salaton. The experience...

Our hostess, Susan, arranged our 3.5 hours car ride from Nairobi to Maji Moto Maasai Cultural Camp. Once we arrived at the campsite, we were welcomed with traditional dance and supa greetings. I felt an instant connection to the warriors and the camp grounds. The greeting brought tears to my eyes, it felt as if I had returned from a...

One of the most moving moments of my trip to Africa was when I arrived in Maji Moto Maasai Cultural Camp. We were welcomed by the tribe with dances. In the end we got a traditional blanket from the warriors as a gift! We stayed 1 day here, got to visit the village, spoke with the locals, enjoyed the nature....

The experience is simply amazing! The camp is clean with nice food, and you have water from the hot spring for shower. We stayed 1 day here, got to visit the village, the plantation field, and the widow' s village. We were welcomed by the maasai chief and tribe with dances and got to mingle with them. Then we walked...

I have mixed emotions/feelings about Maji Moto. It offered a very unique experience (manyatta accommodation and hot springs, evening bonfires) in the wild. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the camp and the treks/walks with Koila, Meeri and Fosti. They were most welcoming and accommodating. I however feel that more can and should be done about the meals. The...

We stayed at Maji Moto from December 27th thru January 2nd of 2016/17. My wife and I can't say enough incredible things about this stay. It started with Salaton and his best friend Chris picking us up themselves in Nairobi and driving us back to the Maji Moto village. After the very warm welcome from some of the village people...

Great experience and gives a great feel to be close to the people. All very clean and sleeping in the local huts is amazing. The shower with water from a hot water well is also special. Food is good and all the walks is really special. Making fire, sitting around the fire talking. Not sure everybody will enjoy it so...

My fiance and I recently spent a couple days at Maji Moto and actually had a wedding ceremony with Salaton and some of the local community. This was our first trip to Africa and spending time here was one of our major highlights. If you want an authentic experience, this is a MUST! There are a lot of fake Maasai...

A very warm welcome- good food- nice and comfy rustic rooms built with local materials- eco-friendly- amazing hospitality and great walking, hiking opportunities! The hosts were all very nice - and Chief Salaton leading by wonderful example- the singing and chanting around the fireplace at night are unforgettable.
