This active Maasai adventure, named by National Geographic Traveler
as one of “50 Tours of a Lifetime,” combines African wildlife safaris in Amboseli National Park and the Maasai Mara, with incredible cross-cultural experiences with the warriors and elders of this African savanna. Based from comfortable tented camps and locally-run lodges, our expert local guides take you off the beaten path to discover the beauty of Africa’s animals and people: visit an animal orphanage and meet rhinos and elephants that were saved from poachers; head off on morning and afternoon safari tours in Maasai Mara, a reserve made famous for its annual wildebeest and zebra migration and home to elephants, hippos, lions, hyenas and more; join a Maasai warrior for a bushwalk and learn about daily life and the problem of poaching; and spend days in a Merrueshi village, sharing stories with elders and discussing world issues of common concern and discovering the fine arts of beading, traditional healing, music-making and dancing.
