Cultural Encounters with the Maasai

At Natural Habitat Safaris, the importance of community and preserving culture informs everything we do. Populated by people as varied as its terrain, Kenya offers rich opportunities for visitors to meet local people, particularly the Maasai, whose vast homeland spans much of Kenya's most popular safari regions. Through building crucial partnerships with communities, we have access to many cultural experiences to offer our guests that will add a vibrant dimension to your safari.

Unlike the contrived performances staged at big lodges or souvenir markets primarily catering to tourists, the cultural opportunities we make available are genuine. Visit a Maasai village, witness the bustle of market day, step out onto a community-owned conservancy and learn to throw a spear as these traditional hunters do. Walking into the bush from camp, you're accompanied by a local guide who can’t help but share his deep knowledge of a land handed down from generation to generation. There's no better way to learning the intricacies of ecosystems and wildlife than from someone who was born on the land and learned to read it from the time of taking his first steps. Back in camp, there is always a chance to share together around the fire, and local tribesmen love nothing better than telling stories and celebrating our cultural diversity. After dinner, join them in a traditional dance as you immerse yourself in the natural rhythm, freedom of expression, and sense that any time is a moment to celebrate the gifts of life.
