About the experience
More than a hundred years ago the Maasai ruled over much of East Africa. For centuries they have herded their cattle, goats, and sheep in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Their feared warriors were renowned for their bravery. In the past, every Maasai warrior was supposed to kill a lion as it was symbolically a rite of passage. Until these days, the Maasai have a special relationship with their land, the wild animals, and cattle.
This adventure is based on the real life of the Maasai warriors from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. During the dry season, the warriors herd the cattle much further where are better pastures. The warriors can stay in savanna with the cattle up to months. They only eat meat, blood and herbs and they sleep under trees. Here you can literally feel and hear the spirit of Africa.
You are completely safe with the Maasai who walk with their spears, and you can see many wild animals from close distance by foot. At night you are not allowed to go out from your tent. The Maasai watch your back at all times during the night and day. Besides herding the cattle and bush walking, you learn about traditional medicine, traditions and wisdom of the Maasai. You get an experience of a lifetime.
