After a long flight, or to unwind at the end of a safari, arriving to this seemingly secret spot is a delight for all your senses. As you drive into the entrance you are warmly welcomed by Maasai singing, wide smiles and a refreshing hibiscus flower juice. Maasai Lodge is named after the most colourful and famous tribe in East Africa. In the evening you share stories around a fire with members of this iconic tribe or watch a traditional dance at a point between Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro.
After a delicious three course meal in the restaurant, you retire to your earth house room for the night. Although these rooms are made in the traditional way, they are extremely comfortable and all have ensuite bathrooms (with the best view from the toilet!)
Early in the morning a tea tray arrives to your room, so you can enjoy the view before heading to breakfast. A wide variety of activities are available including nature walks with a Maasai warrior, spending a day in a real Maasai village or simply enjoying the space, having a massage, a swim and a relax in the mirror cave. Spear throwing is always on the agenda - where you can either observe the warriors showing you their talents or have a go yourself! For children there are donkey rides and a playroom.
Have we tempted you??! If so, get in touch and lets start planning your trip of a lifetime!
