An evening at Manyatta

An experience like no other

We invite you to enjoy a very special evening at a Maasai manyatta - a traditional village of huts - hosted by the elders of an ancient community. You'll receive a warm welcome via enthralling traditional dances then be invited into their homes where they're only too happy to immerse you in their culture, be it sharing their tips on how to preserve milk or deter pesky bugs. They'll take pride in giving you more insight into their fascinating activities and crafts. Later, you'll relish a traditional campfire dinner hosted by the elders where you may converse about topics like current affairs, education or conservation. Often, this evening culminates with a spirited game of "bao", an ancient African board game steeped in Kenyan culture. There is also an opportunity to spend the night at a house in the manyatta for an even more immersive experience. For groups of six or more. A contribution of $50 per guest is requested.
