About Us

Welcome to our country.

We are Maasai and wish to show visitors our rural life. Come to our boma and come into our homes; work with the animals; follow our daily life. Understand what we do, how we do it and why we do it this way.

Collect maize with us from the field for roasting and eating, walk with us to collect the water we need, come with us to the market and see the goats we buy and sell.

See how we slaughter a goat and how every part is used. Sit round the campfire with us and share the roasted goat meat. Sing with us, dance with us. Watch how we make our medicines. See how we teach our children. Learn how we organize our society.

Our Team

Melkiory (Melly) started our company after working as a walking safari wildlife guide for several years. He has also guided expeditions to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and has walked every route. In his free time, Melly loves to play pool, look after his shamba and talk to his homing pigeons.

Lesciker has lived in the Monduli region all his life and is our expert in collecting the plants for making medicine. Lesiker joins us for the campfires, helps around the site and works as our camp askari (security guard).

Geoffrey lives in Mto wa mbu (mosquito river) and cooks for our visitors.
