There’s a small, informative museum, medicinal walks, lessons in spear-throwing techniques, and more. It’s an excellent destination for families with children.

You’ll dine on a traditional lunch, take a walking tour, learn about Maasai hunting practices, and get an introduction to Maasai medicine. For added convenience, private hotel transfers are included.
