You want to discover the culture of the Maasa and see how the Maasai people live?
Then you have the opportunity to visit accompanied by one of our guides a Maasai village (Manyatta) – authentic and traditional. A typical Maasai village is surrounded by a circular wall. It consists of thorns. So, people and also the valuable herd animals of the Maasai are protected inside from wind and wild animals.
The huts of the Maasai are made of wood and clay. They are built very low, that you can barely stand inside.
During your visit to Manyatta you can watch Maasai women making crafts. Without a commitment, you can buy souvenirs.
Even the traditional Maasai dance with vocals by Maasai warriors and Maasai women you will be able to admire. It is a special opportunity for photographers to take great photos of the high jumping Maasai warriors.
The visit of the village takes about 1 to 1.5 hours and costs 20 US dollars. The majority of the fees goes to the Maasai Manyatta village and their members. Driving time to the village is on our Jeep approximately 30 minutes.
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.

“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.”
