Description

Immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the Maasai during a day spent in the beautiful Ngong Hills. Learn to make Maasai jewelry, discover the song and dance of the tribe, and support a local nonprofit dedicated to alleviating poverty while you're at it—all net proceeds from the tour go to One Horizon Africa.

Get picked up from your hotel and head out of Nairobi into the Ngong Hills, the homeland of the Maasai. Run in partnership with One Horizon Africa—a nonprofit dedicated to alleviating poverty in Kenya and South Africa—this tour is led by 2 Maasai tribeswomen, sisters who learned how to make jewelry from their grandmother.

Join them in the cool shade of an acacia tree and make your own Maasai wristband, learning time-honored methods for making jewelry and the meaning of the different colors used in the intricate beadwork. If you'd like, round out the experience by partaking in customary Maasai singing and dancing before heading back to the city.

It was a wonderful tour or I may say experience of my African vacation. It is unique since I was able to mingle, somehow learn & practice what a traditional Masaai do. They are very hospitable and I have learned a lot from a short time that I spend with Daniel’s family. My guide Solomon is very nice & assertive. Can’t ask for anything more. I’m so happy & grateful that I have booked this tour. Kudos to One Horizon Africa for organizing this tour and helping the community. I Will do it again once I come back to Kenya ❤️

The simplest explanation of my experience on this tour is that it has changed my life. For me it spoke to the unbelievable perseverance of the human soul and the abilty to forgive and move forward. The ladies i met are walking testaments to the fact that our past doesn’t define us it only guides us. Everyone experiences difficulties in life it is how we choose to react to those difficulties that determines our life. These ladies have definately made great strides in rising up from their seemingly impossible circumstances.To quote Daniel the great Maasai man I met on the tour “all people must learn and change”. Understanding not everyone will have the same experience when sharing a day with the Maasai; however I feel confident that you will gain some worthwhile life perspectives. Thanks PLS
