What we do at Maji Moto Eco Camp



Maji Moto Eco Camp is nestled on the outskirts of the Masai Mara National Park, Kenya's most visited park. It epitomizes eco-friendliness, operating entirely off-grid with solar power for electricity, complemented by lanterns and a fireplace in the evenings, fostering a warm and homely atmosphere. Perched atop a hill, it commands breathtaking vistas of the Loita plains, providing the perfect setting for sundowners and serene relaxation amidst the beauty of Africa.



Rooted in Maasai culture, our camp embodies our profound admiration for this heritage. Our decision to establish the camp and relocate to Kenya was driven by our deep appreciation for the Maasai culture. Reflecting this commitment, all our staff hail from the nearby village of Maji Moto and are Maasai by birth and upbringing. We are dedicated to immersing our guests in the essence of Maasai life, offering insights into nature and sharing captivating stories.



At Maji Moto Eco Camp, our mission is to ensure unparalleled comfort, facilitate engaging activities, and cultivate a tranquil, eco-conscious environment conducive to rejuvenation. Join us to experience the essence of Maasai hospitality, forge unforgettable memories, and contribute to sustainable tourism in the heart of Kenya.

To enhance the ambiance of the camp, lanterns line the footpaths, guiding guests to the dispersed bathrooms and showers. These facilities are thoughtfully designed to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings, imbuing a sense of adventure and aesthetic allure. Our showers, affectionately termed "bush showers," feature water cascading through wooden logs resembling trees. The open-top design allows guests to shower under the sky, with floral accents and branches adding to the picturesque setting.



We source our water from a natural hot spring located beneath the camp's hill, providing warm and mineral-rich water beneficial for the skin. The camp's name, Maji Moto, meaning "hot water" in Swahili, pays homage to these rejuvenating springs.

 

For dining and relaxation, our main area is situated atop the hill, offering panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
