Day-by-day Description

Day 1Nairobi to Maasai Mara

Activities Included

General Photography Culture

After an early pick up from the airport or your hotel in Nairobi we make our way into the Maasai Mara. We stop once at the Rift Valley View Point to enjoy a great view over the plains of Kenya and a second time for lunch on the way. Around afternoon you arrive at Oloolaimutia and get to know the family where you stay. You can either decide to sleep in a families house or you sleep in a house build by the community especially for foreign guests. Whatever you decide, everyone will be welcoming you - especially the kids! Today you get to know the area, learn about our traditions and help milking the cows for dinner. The night will be adventurous for you - you hear al the animals of the wild. Hyena, lion and elephant will walk close by, but don't worry - our dogs keep you safe and no one will enter our cozy homes.

Day 2Experience Maasai Culture

Activities Included

Bird Photography Hiking Landscape photography Party Bird Watching Culture

As Maasai we are usually awake very early with the rising sun. We have to milk the cows and goats for our breakfast before we send them out for grazing. After breakfast the kids go to school and our ladies go for firewood or water. On tuesday a very busy market is taking place in Oloolaimutia and if you are here on this day, you can accompany us to the market and experience the colours, the people and the hard bargaining.  If you are into hiking, we can start your day with an extensive walk around the area. On the top of the nearby mountain you enjoy awesome views and if you are lucky we can even see some small antelopes that inhabit this area. We enjoy lunch in a typical restaurant of East Africa and then the day is up to you. Maybe you want to learn how to throw the spear or use bow and arrow like our warriors - the Ol Moran - use to do it. Or you want to visit the kids in school and maybe teach them something about your homecountry? You can even make yourself some jewelry out of beads with the help of our ladies. For the evening we have a great barbecue for you on offer. Learn how to make fire without matches or lighters and enjoy a jummy "Nyama Choma" like a Maasai.  If you still can't get enough, we can go to the club of town for some beers and dancing.

Today you will have to say "bye" to your home next to the Maasai Mara. We start the day with a nature walk and try to find tracks of the animals that have been roaming here at night.
