Traditional Maasai Village Day Tour Experience 8 hours

  • Shared tour
  • Solo friendly

Visit a traditional Masai homestead where the Masai family will welcome you to their home. You will be shown a traditional Masai house, being introduced to the family members and shared their stories about daily living. Normally the family would also prepare a small “bazaar” of traditional Masai beadwork. Manyata visit fee, which is already taken care of by the camp and any beadwork purchase goes directly to the family which hosts you. During times of drought, this revenue helps the community enormously.

Immerse yourself in authentic Maasai culture as you visit a traditional village, accompanied by an English-speaking guide who lives there himself.

Find yourself in the daily hustle and bustle of local life as you witness the daily rituals of the Maasai. Once you have drunk your fill of this authentic cultural experience, you can choose to browse through the Maasai Craft Centre and purchase artefacts made by the people you encountered. All proceeds from this go directly to the community.

Living a semi-nomadic lifestyle, the Maasai tribe has modernised in some ways but still adheres to many aspects of their traditional culture. Established as fierce warriors, their lively cultural dance, vibrant clothing and beautifully crafted handiwork are recognised worldwide.

The Maasai used to move nomadically with their herds to abundant lush pastures but these days they have built permanent huts or bomas and prefer to stay in one place. They are pastoralists and cattle are essential to their way of life. A man's success is measured by the number of cattle and offspring he has. As great a status and show of wealth as the cattle are, they are also a vital food source. This glimpse of authentic Maasai culture is a fascinating experience of an ancient way of life that still flourishes today.
