Trek through southwestern Kenya with a trained Maasai warrior and certified African travel guide.

Starting in Oseki Maasai Mara Camp, about four hours southwest of Nairobi, we'll visit a traditional Maasai village, learning about their traditional songs and dances.

Next, it's on to the bush for a guided nature walk in the Mara to spot wild animals, plants, and flowers. We'll close out the trip with a beadworking lesson from the Maasai locals, and return with your own handcrafted souvenirs from the trip.

Supa!

My name is Dennis Shinka Parmuat, I have been a guide in the Mara for over 7 years and a true Maasai of nature, born and raised in the Mara. I was trained as a Maasai warrior since the age of 10, spending many years out in the bush. Animal tracking is my speciality and showing visitors our village, the park and way of life in the Maasai Mara in my passion.

Together with Anne Blom, my co-host and partner we are happy to host our guests that are coming to have a experience of a lifetime in our precious homeland. Anne is a FGASA level 1 guide, passionate about photography, African culture and wildlife.

Note that, as you come to visit us, we can easily combine the days you spent with us with other interesting activities such as a walk on Leruk hill, a game drive in the Maasai Mara or other fun stuff!

This adventure far exceeded our expectations, the Maasai were all extremely polite, very sincere and genuine. Our time spent together was educational and inciteful, they shared their experiences and their culture and kept us interested throughout. If you want to experience a life changing adventure, I would highly recommend this for all ages. A special thank you to Dennis, Peter, Lawrence and Solomon who made this a memorable adventure.

The experience with Dennis and his staff was wonderful, could not recommend the experience more, they were all so friendly and made sure we had the best experience. Accomodation was great, clean and what we expected. If you are travelling from Nairobi best will be to get your own way down there and save some money.

The trip with Dennis and his team was incredible and unique. Everyone who worked at the camp was super friendly and we learned a lot about the Masai culture from them. The hike, game drive and welcome at the village was wonderful. We had the best time and saw so many animals and meet some many great people-Thank You.

Words can’t even describe how amazing this experience was. The Maasai warriors were the most hospitable and friendly hosts who shared real accounts of their lives with us. The accommodation was simple and neat and appropriate for the village setting. The food was INCREDIBLE and plentiful. We had the chance to go on a nature walk where we learnt how to use a bow and arrow. We also learnt more about the local plants and herbs used for medicinal purposes. We had the most amazing game drive and saw an abundance of animals in the most beautiful setting. I’ve been on many game drives in my life but this was by far the most breathtaking one. We went to the village where we dressed up in traditional wear and were exposed to some of the daily duties the Maasai do and we danced and jumped! The only thing I would tell other guests is that they should budget additional money for activities such as the game drive ($150 for the car and $80pp for the park entrance) and the village visit was also not free (1000 Kenyan shillings). There was also a market where Maasai items were being sold so bring extra cash for that too. Thank you to Dennis and Anne. You gave us the richest experience. I recommend everyone try this out for themselves.
