Through the Eyes of the Maasai ™
Experience rich wildlife safaris, by foot or by car, knowing that your trip is also providing support to the local community through employment and funding of projects for education, health, and conservation.
When you are with us, you are with your Maasai family living an authentic traditional life, rather than seeing a commercial camp set up strictly for entertainment. You will get to know the Maasai people living and working in the camp, visit their traditional homes, and get insight to their daily lives.
Warrior Training: Try your skill at spear throwing, close up warrior battle, fire making, and much more. Village Life: Experience the homes, cooking, water fetching, and other daily life activities. Cultural Activities: Hear the songs and stories of the warriors around the camp fire, or plan for a ceremony of blessing and celebration. Walking with the Maasai: Experience the hills and plains as the Maasai do, on foot. Learn about how they survive in the wildness, and use holy and medicinal plants from nature.
