DAY 01

NAIROBI - MAASAI MARA

  • Pick up in Nairobi. Drive to the world famous Maasai Mara will take you through the Great Rift Valley where there will be a shortstop for photographs at the top of the escarpment.

  • Continue driving through the rift valley arriving at Fisi Camp in time for lunch and a short briefing by the team at Fisi Camp.

  • Spend the afternoon at a local manyatta, a traditional Maasai homestead. Here you will learn from the extended family what it is like to live in a manyatta, how the families and groups are organised, why cows are central to the Maasai culture, the roles of the men and the women, how the Maasai as a tribe have managed to maintain their culture and traditions in the modern world.

  • Join the women as they show you how they make beautiful jewellery from beads. The men will show you how they make a fire using just two pieces of wood and a little dried grass. Try your hand at herding and milking the goats. You may get to see how they bleed a cow which they use in their milk as a valuable source of protein.

  • Return to Fisi Camp for dinner.

The top of the hill gives breathtaking views over the Mara.
