Singing Wells

An experience like no other

The Ol Lentille Conservancy is home to three sets of "singing wells". A unique tradition of the Maasai and Samburu and only found in this particular part of Kenya, the wells are dug deep into lagha (dry riverbeds). The Maasai and Samburu warriors create a human chain that descends into the well so water can be passed up to the surface in buckets. The men "sing" a hauntingly beautiful chant that reverberates through the valley. This song also acts as a signal to their cows, telling them it's time to come and enjoy a drink. Only during the dry season.
