Overview

This unique cultural tour in Kenya is conducted in a village and in a traditional Maasai home (manyatta) under the tutelage of Masai women who support their families through making jewellery. The Masai community that you become part of is not a tourist attraction. It is a community that goes about its days doing what the Maasai do every day, herding animals. That's why it is one of the most intimate cultural tours which provides insights into Maasai life. The mementos of this experience is in the form of bracelets, an image and video gallery provided to you and your memories will be treasured for life.

Maasai jewellery, which is a distinctive part of the adornment of the Maasai, is an art form in terms of its colour and design. For the Maasai every colour and the arrangement of colours in jewellery has a meaning. Members of your host Maasai family and other tribe members have been skilled in the art of making jewellery by their parents and grandparents. It is an integral part of the life of the Maasai and they will take every opportunity to adorn themselves.

Jewellery pieces are an important aspect of the rites of passage from transitions into adulthood, to marriage proposals, dowry negotiations, birth and death. It’s the vibrancy of colour and design that are the hallmarks of Maasai jewellery. And during your day at the village, you will also get to witness some of the skills of the Maasai from those to do with learning how to protect oneself from predatory animals that stalk their herd to the plants and herbs which they use for medicinal purposes. It is a total cultural tour and immersion in all things Maasai.

On this cultural tour you will also see how song and dance is part of the Masai's everyday life. You will see a rich and wonderful culture that is maintaining its traditions. And with your Maasai host leading the way your day will be punctuated by the songs and dance of the Maasai.

The village is less than 60 minutes from Nairobi and in the Maasai homelands. It’s a great place to take a break from bustling Nairobi and the serenity of the magnificent valley will also help refresh your energies. A master class in all things Maasai and a day you will remember forever.
