Kenya Tours and Safaris
It could be argued that "safari" was born in Kenya, with the primal drama of lion, leopard and cheetah hungrily following a sea of wildebeest so immense, at times it seems the earth itself is moving. Africa's single most famous safari draw, the annual Great Migration occurs every September and October as animals travel between Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara park reserve. The park takes its name from famous nomadic Maasai people, who wander as freely across the Kenya-Tanzania border as their cattle. There is more to Kenya than safari, though: from coral reefs and white sand beaches to tea plantations, plus a tourism infrastructure that can get you to all of them, you're not likely to get bored.
For ages, the Masai people of East Africa have preserved an authentic way of life that includes training warriors, living peacefully and communicating with wild animals across the plains, and developing native medicines. Now it’s your turn to get a taste of this unique lifestyle. This short five-day trip takes a dive right into the daily life of the Masai, where you’ll learn how to make traditional beaded jewelry, milk cows, throw a spear and identify different animal tracks. You’ll get a firsthand look at bush survival skills as you live with the Masai people in their village, learn the beliefs of the Masai and enjoy a ceremony on your final night to cap off your experience.
Highlights: Learn survival skills from Masai warriors, participate in day-to-day life in a remote Masai village, listen to warrior stories around the campfire, witness a traditional Masai ceremony.
