In the Footsteps of the Maasai

Trek with Maasai guides on a traditional hiking safari in Kenya’s remote Loita Hills

You won’t find a more unique Kenya safari than this combination of a trek in the Loita Hills followed by the famed Maasai Mara. Your adventure begins with a private hike through the homeland of the Maasai Purko clan, guided by local tribesmen. We spend four days on foot, discovering the Sacred Forest filled with cedar, podo and strangler figs, waterfalls, and spectacular birdlife. Some 2,000 colobus monkeys roam the trees; you’re also likely to see or find evidence of elephant, buffalo, baboon, bushbuck, bush pig, leopard and hyena. Donkeys are used to carry the lightweight camp to our base, located deep within the forest near natural springs and hippo pools. Your route is tailored according to your physical abilities and interests—a rare adventure to thrill even the most seasoned safari-goer!
