    • Meet the tour guide in Nairobi and begin the drive to the rural Maasai heartland.
    • On reaching the village, the elders will take you on tour to explain how the Maasai people manage these precious lands. You will learn about their tribal values, native herbs and plants used for medicinal remedies, and their most sacred and treasured possession. A warm song and dance await you at the village, and the wife of a village elder will offer to dress you in traditional Maasai shuka cloth or ‘African blanket’. 
    • Help out the women and learn their skills of constructing a new manyatta – a traditional Maasai homestead.
    • Join the Maasai mothers to cook a traditional Kenyan meal over an open fire and hear their stories as they show you how to create your own piece of highly decorative Maasai beaded jewellery. 
    • Meet the young Maasai warriors, or morans, who will explain their rites of passage as they become warriors, the defenders of the tribe. They will teach you how to throw a traditional spear, climb up an acacia tree and even the extraordinary jumping dance, or ‘adumu’.
