      THIS IS THE PLACE! We are so lucky we found it and fell in love with the pictures and reviews. This was undoubtedly the highlight of our 12 days trip. If you want a place to experience a real Maasai experience that doesn’t feel like a sketch for tourist, if you want beautiful rooms and views, delicious food and a lot of fun, THIS IS THE PLACE. It has been of the best experiences we have had while traveling and we feel so lucky we found it. Thanks to all the staff for sharing with us your culture, your space and your love. We really miss you from Puerto Rico!

      I traveled to Africa to celebrate my boyfriends 40th birthday. We spent two weeks traveling from Kenya to Zanzibar to Tanzania. Our last two nights of the trip were spent at the Original Maasai Lodge. This was truly the highlight of our trip. Every single person in the staff are AMAZING. My boyfriend and I now considers everyone a friend. Joshua (our walking guide) is more like family. Thank you and we cannot wait to return!!!

      Masai Culture

      Excellent experience of the Masai culture. The rooms are very unique and cleverly crafted.

      Pros: The inclusion of Masai activities, such as spear throwing, dance, nature walk, masai food, etc. The staff is well trained with great customer service

      Cons: The menu for dinner and lunch could be improved, as we found the food very bland and mediocre.

      Location: It is 2.5hrs away from Arusha and 1.5hrs away from Kilimanjaro. So, plan accordingly. You will be relying on the hotel for all activities.
