This is a traditional Maasai Village where you get to experience the way the traditional Maasai people live their day to day life.
You will be constantly fascinated by the traditions of the Maasai and whenever, you interact with them, it’s always a lovely experience. The Maasai are the last of the Kenyan tribes to still keep a lot of their traditions and ways of life. It’s always interesting to watch them as they conduct their traditional dances and ceremonies.
The thing about the Maasai Village is that, even though the village has Maasai who dress in Traditional clothing, they may not be Maasais.
