Masai Village- Kenya

January 5, 2012

We are nearing the end of our trip now. We just have a few days in Nairobi before we start our journey home on Sunday night which is Monday morning at home!! This week was our final week on tour. We visited the Masai Mara National Park this week. It was a real highlight of our trip. On the way into the National Park we visited a Masai Village. We did visit a village in Tanzania  but it was a commercialised village and wasn’t functional. It was interesting to compare the two experiences. Only Mike visited the village as we didn’t think it would be much different from the village we had already visited.

The village near the national Park was functional… people actually lived there. It was a more authentic experience. The welcoming dance performed by the Masai man went for much longer and all in the group participated which is a nice touch. One of the villagers demonstrated lighting fire the traditional way and they took them into the hot little houses they have. At the village in Tanzania the people were very pushy to sell their crafts but at the village in Kenya they were happy for everyone to just look. Mike really enjoyed the visit to the village and I think he got some awesome images. – I had to share them with you all before we blog our last entry for this trip of the Masai Mara National Park.

Mike and I are getting home next week. We have really enjoyed our trip – like any trips it has it’s ups and downs but it certainly has been an experience we will never forget!!We will be able to be contacted by phone from Wednesday but should have good internet access up until we fly home on Sunday, so feel free to send us through any inquires.

    Hi, I’m planning in going to Kenya in October on a safari. Lake Nakuru and Masai Mars are in the Internary as well as the Masai village. Any recommendations? Thanks.
