Authentic Maasai culture
Amboseli landscape is predominantly home to the pastoral Maasai community whose economic livelihood is largely depended on livestock. Over the years, both the Maasai and wildlife have co-evolved in the east African savannah grasslands yielding to a harmonious co-existence. Pastoralism and wildlife conservation require considerably large tracts of land hence making the Maasai a trusted partner in all conservation endeavors. Further, the Maasai as a people are endowed with a fascinating culture that has greatly enriched Kenya’s tourism industry.
A diversity of their material culture, simple life in the kraals, songs and dances culminate to the epical and charismatic jumping style of the young warriors that has become an appealing product for tourists seeking a glimpse of the cultural immersion. This has given the Maasai people global significance and their culture remains as an undisputed tourism product
