The Maasai are a Nilotic ethnic group inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are among the best-known local populations internationally due to their residence near the many game parks of the African Great Lakes, and their distinctive customs and dress. The Maasai have always been special. Their bright red robes set them apart visually. Spear in hand, they are calm and courageous regardless of the danger. They were the dominating tribe at beginning of 20th century, and they are one of the very few tribes who have retained most of their traditions, lifestyle and lore. In common with the wildlife with which they co-exist, the Maasai need a lot of land. Unlike many other tribes in Kenya, the Maasai are semi-nomadic and pastoral: they live by herding cattle and goats and they believe that God gave them to take care! Upon arrival at the village and after dancing with the locals, have a refreshment at the village and embark on the days’ activities of goat slaughtering and preparation of meat, roasting, blood tasting / drinking.

After seeing the Best Ever Food Tour visit at the Maasai village in Amboseli, I was inspired to go! I contacted Emmanuel, and he was instantly a wealth of knowledge. ....more After seeing the Best Ever Food Tour visit at the Maasai village in Amboseli, I was inspired to go! I contacted Emmanuel, and he was instantly a wealth of knowledge.

We often communicated about my trip so much that by the time we met, I felt as if I were amongst friends.

Along with Emmanuel was Carlos Roy, our driver.

Carlos and Emmanuel were incredibly knowledgeable about the Maasai people, the area and could answer all of my questions.

Carlos is by far the best driver.

He is considerate and has a great sense of humour.

You definitely won't be bored as he introduces you to the "African massage"! On the tour, Emmanuel was able to translate my questions, arrange a time for me to personally interview the elder and much more! This tour was hands down one of my favorite experiences during my entire trip.

I've been to another Maasai village and this by far was the most authentic.

I felt as if I was truly able to experience the culture as well as gain an appreciation for their desire to keep up with today's technology while preserving their traditions and norms.

I'm so glad I did this tour with Emmanuel and Carlos.

I am a travel advisor and my goal is to send my clients seeking an authentic experience to tour with Emmanuel and Carlos in the future.

My one piece of advice would be not to wait, book today because this is a really popular tour!!!; ....less
