Following your introduction you will take some time to settle in one of the huts where you will have lunch. You’ll have an opportunity to ask any burning questions and further discuss maasai culture. You will also be treated to some local maasai chai tea, some of the best chai you’ll have ever had.
After you’re done you’ll head outside again where you’ll be invited to watch and join in a traditional Maasai dance and song.
This Maasai Cultural Day Tour involves travel to a authentic Maasai. Reflective of this, it is very isolated and remote in location. There are no toilet facilities in the village as the local community there usually walk to toilet in a large crater 2 km from their village. Reflective of this be aware that if you do need to go to the toilet once you are there this will most likely involve a bush pee behind a large rock which might be confronting to some guests. So make sure to make necessary arrangements before y
