This area is rarely visited and as a result, it is widely believed that the most traditional Maasai culture exists here.

There are pockets of remote forests, wide open plains surrounded by the stunning hillsides and dotted with roaming wildlife. This isn’t an area for viewing a big game, but more somewhere to enjoy the scenery, walk with the local Maasai, and learn more about their culture and communities.
