You’re welcome to visit one of the Maasai villages to get a flavour for daily life in the Mara and to learn about the local Maasai tribe, whose traditional pastoralist customs are still very much in practice. Just 10 minutes’ drive from Mahali Mzuri, the best times to go are first thing in the morning when you can help milk the cattle or in the evening when the cattle, goats and sheep are being herded back to their enclosures for the night. The local school is a further 5 minute drive from the village. This is where the Maasai children aged 3-15 years attend.
