A rare chance to live one day the Masai way
Few people will ever join Masai herdsmen on their cattle drive, build a manyatta or learn to throw a spear, cook, dance and make jewellery the Masai way... but you'll do all this and more as you bond with Masai people whom you'll come to call friends. Not many travellers have a chance to visit this special place. Our programs are part of the lives of the Masai clan who call it home. There are 1.2 million Masai in Kenya.Book Now Enquire Now

The day starts with a fascinating drive to spectacular Masai country.
Here we're met by Masai herdsman who’ll invite you to join them on their daily cattle drive. It's a great way to connect and the downhill stroll is as easy as the banter. Along the way they'll share cultural insights including the time-honoured Masai tradition of blooding the cow.
A warm song and dance welcome awaits you at the village - and, you can join in the fun as a warrior leads you in a Masai dance class.
After the energetic start to the day an Elder invites you to share tea at his home. This experience brings more insights as he chats candidly with you about Masai life, including rites of passage and the roles of men and women in traditional Masai society.
The women's role is all about caring for the family and that includes building the home - as they construct a new manyatta from sticks and mud, they'll invite you to help out and teach you their skills.
Time for lunch and more memorable moments with Masai mothers as you join them to cook up a traditional Kenyan meal over a three-stone fire.
As the afternoon unfolds, they'll share more stories as they guide you in making your own piece of traditional Masai jewellery to keep as a memento of your one day living the Masai way.
We call this experience Masai Magic because we're constantly astonished by the magical moments that unfold as our guests and the villagers connect throughout the day - from Masai warriors throwing a surprise birthday party to an acacia tree stealing the limelight and the 'running of the Masai bulls'.
- Air conditioned hotel transfers - we'll collect you at 9am from your Nairobi hotel and drop you back at about 5pm. Along the way we’ll show you some amazing sights and magnificent countryside.
- A light lunch.
- Unlimited fruit, tea, coffee and water.
A life affirming tour that definitely should not be missed. My heart is full. Sitting with a Masai woman and learning the art of beadwork with her capable hands (in Maasai enkirina enkaina), while hearing her story... and how she overcame it ALL is so amazing. She is my shujaa (Maasai for hero). I am overwhelmed. Her Story Matters. I also picked up amazing pieces at unbelievable prices to add to the Kenya collection. I am recommending this to everyone I possibly can. I left feeling like family.
Amazing day with inspiring Masai... Spending a day with them dancing, making jewellery and sharing experiences from our different cultures was wonderful. Thanks OneHorizon.net! Our guides were excellent; very welcoming and punctual. Their warm personality allowed for great conversation, particularly on the importance of empowering women. I strongly recommend booking this tour, which will contribute to the One Horizon Programs that have strong positive impacts in supporting women and young children.
