Learn from the Maasai

We invite you to join us for an adventure. An adventure designed for you to experience the authentic essence of Kenya's most independent people and to live with them today as they have lived for generations. This unique holiday was created for outgoing travellers who are keen to experiment with new activities and are looking for insights into a different culture, all while enjoying a relaxing and comfortable break in the remote Kenyan bush. We organise exciting itineraries to beautiful wilderness locations in small, exclusive groups where you will live and learn with the indigenous Maasai people in a way that brings a true exchange of ideas.

Itinerary Highlights:
A thrilling initiation into some of the fundamental customs of the Maasai warrior traditions, the course is concentrated on how the Maasai defend themselves out in the bush far from home, and how we protect our animals from predators. You will have an introduction to their culture, how the society is organised and the will teach you some of the basics of their language. You will spend most of the time in the outdoor classrooms - perhaps in a sandy riverbed or a shaded clearing. Part of the course is a short upwards hike to give you a wide-angle view of the wilderness around us. Central to being a Maasai warrior is the ability to protect family and cattle, and you will spend your days learning fighting techniques. Maasai weapons are hand-fashioned from local hardwoods by master craftsmen. Which will be your natural weapon? The bow and arrow, perhaps? Or our 6ft (2m) fighting spears? Or maybe the rungus - short throwing sticks of wood so dense they can crack a skull. You'll need to know how to deflect attacks with the famous cow-hide shields - they will show you that too. All of these activities, like everything you do with Maasai Warrior Training, will be carried out with constant vigilance to your safety and that of everyone around you.
