1 DAY - MASAI MAGIC EXPERIENCE
Not many travelers 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.
The day starts with a fascinating drive to spectacular Masai country. 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.
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.
It’s an inspiring day. One Horizon’s unique approach to sustainable tourism involves our travelers in day-to-day village life.
As one of our guests, Anthony from the USA said, “This was out in the country, no tourists in sight, just farmland, cattle and a real family with real trials and obstacles they have overcome. We loved the experience”. And another guest, Miriam said, “This excursion was the best one I’ve ever experienced. From the amazing driver/tour guide, to the women’s amazing stories, to learning so much about their village. Their hospitality was superb.”
One Horizon will pick up and return guests to their Nairobi hotels and the experience includes lunch, tea/coffee and water. It is available to all including young children. To book a place on the program, click on this link
