The cultural identity of our community stands out to be the most preserved among the African cultures. This is exhibited by the way we dress, sing the traditional songs and performing ceremonies marking different stages of an individual’s life. Guests will have the pleasure to experience the Maasai’s pastoral lifestyle and to witness ceremonies and traditional parties. On request, a guest will experience mock traditional wedding ceremony, donkey transport, dances and more. The Maasai community are a welcoming and hospitable community with high regard for their culture. Our people are involved in developing our community through communal effort.
The Maasai Village Homestay stands at the foot of the magnificent Ngong hills with great sceneries. The active volcano of the Mt. Suswa and Longonot are also neighboring great landmarks.. The Nairobi National park is a great visiting destination that has great wildlife among them the big five animals of Kenya.

On request, our visitors can live in a traditional Maasai hut with another host family some few kilometers from our village. The maximum number of visitors that can be accommodated at a time is six.
