AMAZING DAY with a Masai Family. We were greeted by one of the village elders by the name of Daniel. We spent the first hour with Daniel who showed us the huts {houses} the village family stays in that the women built. We had an amazing discussion about the Masai culture and ways of life. Coming from the US, hearing things that are so far from what our life experiences in the States are was an eye opening experience. Daniel introduced us to his sister who had a very powerful story of her life as a young Masai girl growing into becoming a woman. Within the day leading to her story we were entertained by village songs, we were shown how to create beaded bracelets with the women. They closed the day spent with them with coffee and snacks. It was a day well spent. If you are in Nairobi you absolutely have to take time out to do something completely different and become exposed to a different culture and see all of the similarities we humans share. SO worth the time and effort. Our tour guide and our translator were great to spend the day with and gain such valuable insight on the life in Kenya, as well as the Masai people.

Unique tour experiences for people
from around the world.
