The Maasai are known as herdsmen and warriors. Historically, they have a nomadic way of life.
Everything revolves around their livestock, mainly cattle. The drinking of cow’s blood, partly mixed with milk, is part of life and the ceremonies of proud people. Around the huts in which even small animals sleep, a thorn hedge is established. At night the cattle, sheep and goats come in this save area. So they are protected from wild animals.
Today, the Maasai almost no longer hunt. They mainly feed on the flesh of their sheep and goats.
If you are interested, during your stay you can visit a traditional Maasai village (Manyatta) with us. You will meet the friendly people and learn about their customs. Dancing and singing guarantee striking impressions.
The Maasai live in harmony with nature and wildlife. Today, they are peaceful guardian of the Maasai Mara.
Even today their rites and traditional ceremonies play an important role. The elders enjoy a high reputation in the community of the Maasai.
In the evening you will certainly have interesting conversations in English language sitting at the campfire with our Maasai team members.
In the Masai families, John specifically targeted the small children of families who could not afford the school fees and the school clothes (100 US Dollar per year). As a result of our help, the number of students grew from 170 to over 400.
An incredible step in the support of the school was achieved by visiting the Hüsges family from Germany. They were guests in our Malaika Camp in the spring of 2018. While visiting the school they were very touched by the friendliness of the pupils and teachers despite the very difficult conditions.
Education for all e.V.
“The camp, the friendly service and the food are great, the location can not be beat. We have counted every day up to 68 hippos while having breakfast at Malaika Hippo Pool. A unique panoramic views right on the Mara River. John, Jo and their team are very friendly hosts. Next time we definitely stay longer in Malaika Camp!”
“Thank you for 4 unforgettable days in Malaika Camp! Everything was perfect. The kindness, the incredibly beautiful location of the camp and in the evening barbecue at the campfire. The game drives with John were grandiose. We will be back!”
“A small, fine private camp with a great location right on the Mara River. Tents with very good beds, hot showers and flush toilets. Food and service were great. Breakfast and lunch overlooking hippos and crocodiles. We have seen on our game drives with John incredibly many animals up close.”
