Trekking in Maasai land, adjacent to the National Parks, affords unique opportunities to get out and discover the bush on foot, encountering animals and learning about the African wilderness in the way that is impossible from inside a vehicle. There are some magical walks and treks around the Rift Valley escarpment which come in the form of palm-fringed waterfalls, flamingo-pink shores of alkaline lakes, and rocky hilltop lookouts over the bush. Geological wonders are found at every turn, and of course, there’s always a great chance to view wildlife, especially birds and smaller creatures which are often missed from inside a safari vehicle. Our Maasai trekking guides are with you every step of the way, introducing you to the magnificent wilderness that is their home and their way of life.
