Experience Maasai Village Visits
During our Maasai Village tour, we immerse our guests in the Maasai culture by visiting their Manyattas and learning about their ancient way of life. Manyattas are made of cow dung and clay plastered over stick frames, and you’ll get to hear traditional songs, rhythms, and lyrics performed by local vocalists led by song leader (Olaranyani). Depending on the situation, a song can have more than one song leader, with the group of singers answering in unison.
The song lyrics are followed by neck movement and follow a common theme of the day. The head is aggressively rotated with an inward deep breath. Each song has its own structure, but the facial expression and vigor vary from song to song; some are very vigorous, while others are not. The singing is followed by jumping, which is a competition between a group of male singers in which each participant performs his best jump one at a time. You’ll be invited to join them in an effort to out-jump them; we doubt you’ll be able to match their levitation act, but a try is worth more than a stare. Finally, we recommend that visitors photograph local communities only when they expressly request it.
