DAY 1 - NAIROBI - MAJI MOTO ECO-CAMP

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in Nairobi at the agreed time and take you to visit a village of one of the most renowned communities in Africa - a Maasai tribe.

The centre of Maasai life is undoubtedly their cattle, which represents the primary source of food. A typical Maasai diet consists of milk (mostly fermented), fresh blood, and meat, in this order. Vegetables and fruit are more a snack, if so. You’d expect them to be quite unhealthy, but you’d be wrong. They ingest many bitter herbs with the active ingredient saponin, which reduces cholesterol, so they do not develop heart or vascular diseases. And their teeth - mesmerizing white smiles shine on every mouth since they almost don’t develop any caries.

So health they have. And the wealth is measured in numbers of cattle and children - both have to be plenty. If a man has plenty of one and not of the other, he's considered to be poor.

But - all will be explained on-site!

After a three-hour drive from Nairobi, just on time for lunch, you’ll arrive at Maji Moto eco-camp, situated on top of a hill of Loita Hills, near the Maji Moto village. After lunch, you will join a guided nature walk, get Maasai cultural ‘briefing’, learn how to make a fire and finish the day around the fire with Maasai warriors sharing their stories. Learn from ancient wisdom and see the modern changes.

DAY 2 - MAJI MOTO ECO-CAMP - NAIROBI

After breakfast, a display of Maasai ‘marshal arts’ can be expected - warrior training, stick fighting, spear throwing and archery among others. Alternatively, join women making beautiful beadwork, go for a walking safari, or something else. We will visit the village school and the hot spring nearby. After you’re filled with impressions and decorated with beautiful handmade beaded jewellery, we’ll tear you apart from the kind hosts and bring you back to your hotel or airport in Nairobi.
