What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Nairobi to travel into the scenic Ngong Hills, where you’ll meet a local guide in a traditional Masai community. Sit in the shade of an acacia tree to learn the basic skills of Masai jewelry making, and create your own Masai wristband using traditional color codes.  Groove to the melodies and rhythms of a Masai song and dance performance, and join in if you like. You’ll have time to ask questions and learn from locals: a great way to go beyond the typical tourist experience. Following your day in the Masai village, this tour concludes with return transfer to your original departure point.
