  • Day 1: Day 1 - Visiting a Masai Village for a day you will never forget

    Stop At: Ngong Hills, Nairobi Kenya
    DAY 1
    First up a spectacular drive deep into magnificent Masai country. Here we’re met by Masai village elder Daniel and your Masai immersion begins.

    Ultimate Eco-Tour With Village Elder Daniel
    As you join the Masai on their daily cattle drive, Daniel will explain how they manage their precious land, as their ancestors have done for centuries. We’ll then explore the wonders and magic of the landscape as Daniel introduces you to native herbs and ancient medicines that have helped the Masai survive.

    Masai Warriors Share Skills & Insights
    Over a cup of tea, Masai warriors share cultural insights with you, including explaining family structures in Masai society. They’ll also show you how to throw a spear and climb an acacia tree in mere seconds!

    Manyatta Building With Masai Women
    After time with the warriors, we join the women to help them lay the foundations and weave the frame for a new manyatta.

    One Horizon Team Dinner
    We always have a lot of fun at dinner and it’s a great opportunity to download all your questions from your day with the Masai and prepare for tomorrow’s venture back to Masai country.

    Day 2: Day 2 - This amazing day will lead you to be inducted as an honorary Masai

    Stop At: Ngong Hills, Nairobi Kenya
    DAY 2
    Again we stroll down the valley with the Masai, but this time we join in the fun of the welcome – learning to dance Masai-style!

    Learn How To Dance Like The Masai
    Masai warrior Risa will lead you in a Masai dance class and the whole village gets involved. It’s a lot of fun, also a little energetic so you’ll be ready for what’s next – a traditional Masai lunch.

    Learn How To Cook Like The Masai
    Over song and shared stories the Masai women share their recipes and you’re welcome to help them prepare the meal – they have a way with the herbs from the valley you explored yesterday morning and we think you’ll find the lunch you prepare together is simply delicious.

    More Manyatta Building
    Then it’s back to yesterday’s manyatta building – today you’ll join the villagers as they clad the frame with mud. The reward for your efforts is the satisfaction of standing shoulder to shoulder with them and playing your part in creating a new home for a Masai family.

    Make Masai Jewellery
    Jewellery making is the last item on your All Things Masai agenda. It brings more stories and more cultural exchange as the Masai guide you in making your own bracelet, headpiece or necklace to take away as a special memento of your time spent with them.
