Amazing!
This is the most amazing place! We only stayed for one night and we should have stayed for so many more. The rooms are gorgeous and the attention to detail is incredible. The food is delicious, the view from the pool is spectacular and the staff is so kind and helpful.

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!!!

"An incredible lifetime experience"
My husband organized a 4 nights dream trip thru Hotel.com to celebrate my birthday. We had a full board meals and daily activities. "Maasai Lodge" is a traditional lodge set amidst the wild nature of the Maasai, beautifully decorated with handcrafted furniture with wonderful views on Mount Kilimanjaro. A special place for couples and family to rest, to experience their festivals and dances, where you will truly immerse in their culture. We were treated like their friends and family. The bungalow we had was quiet and the view was amazing !!! All the equipment in the room reaches the level of international comfort. (Do not forget to arrange an early coffee in your room so you can enjoy the sunrise over the Kilimanjaro from your bed). The food was delicious and carefully prepared by the young Chef, Elias. He is very creative and has made the fusion between international and traditional local cuisines. Its BEST vegetables filled with many local flavors (even if the meat portion is tiny ...). Overall, throughout our experience, we find the staff are very friendly, helpful and professional like Unambwe, Elia, Chef Elias, Ellegear, Vicktoria, Irene, Samuel, Emmanuel and other we do not remember their name? And of course Naki who help us thru succesfully our reservation from the begining... We would like to thank everyone for making our stay so enjoyable. We will not forget this "incredible lifetime experience". We definately will return someday!!!

Wonderful stay at the Lodge
Staying at the lodge was such a peaceful yet spectacular experience. It was so beautiful all around us, full of clean air, interesting geography, and lots of interesting landscape to hike around and explore. The food was first class and delicious. Our hosts made us very comfortable and always were willing to help if we needed anything.
