1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


I can't choose one particular moment that was more exciting than another. It was all so wonderful. The game drive with Tabula and Jacob left us in awe. They
knew where to go to find the migrating hordes of zebras, wildebeests, giraffes and elephants. The lion and hyena spottings were breathtaking as well. But
staying in James' family compound in Ewangan was also quite a thrill. We loved our walking safari with Jacob, during which he told us so many fascinating
things about Maasai customs and plant usage. We even saw a giraffe and some 'bumbas' (warthogs) on that walk.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Bring along some school supplies for the children at the preschool--notebooks, pencils, sharpeners, pens, crayons, small books. They will be much
appreciated.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, I do feel as if the proceeds from our stay went toward very worthy uses. All of the employees are local Maasai who benefit directly, and 25% of the trips profits are channeled back into community projects, like the health center, IT center, clean water wells, etc.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I would rate our stay with 10,000 stars if I could! It was exceptional! I have traveled all over the world, and I've never enjoyed an experience quite like our stay in the village.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

The tourism venture (and land) is wholly owned and operated by the local Maasai community through SEMADEP - Sekanani Maasai Development Project - as a project that raises money to educate poor children and build a rescue centre for girls running away from Female Genital Mutilation. A committee has been set up to run the camp. All profits are used for community development in the Sekanani area. All staff are from the local Maasai community including the Camp Manager. All receive training from local and national development organisations e.g. SNV and ACC. The community provides school fees for orphans. We are also building shallow wells in the community. We are raising the funds to equip the local, rural health clinic.

Travellers support us by staying with us in our camp rather than one of the mainstream tourist camps, by engaging in our volunteer programme, and by going on safari walks, and cattle herding, with us local Maasai. This holiday is part of the responsibletravel.com and Conservation International Community Based Tourism Programme to support and promote community based tourism ventures that offer significant conservation and development benefits to local communities.

People

Dressed in bright red robes, spear in hand, Maasai warriors are an impressive sight to behold. Calm and courageous in dangerous situations, this tribe is renowned for its remarkable trackers with generations of knowledge of their lands and its wildlife. As semi-nomadic pastoralists, they still live by herding cattle and goats. Where other Kenyan tribes have adjusted to modern-day living and sacrificed their lands and their livelihood, the Maasai still stay true to their traditions.
