Arrive a Visitor and leave a friend, The Kenyan people are warm, friendly and hospitable. You will not feel like a stranger when you walk down the streets. Kenya is renowned for its diverse culture and heritage. Despite the numerous ethnic tribes that exist, Kenyans embrace a great sense of unity, peace, acceptance, and closeness as one people and one country; all strong virtues of traditional African culture. The unique culture of some of the ethnic groups, especially the Maasai, is a great experience to be enjoyed.
Undoubtedly what stands out the most in this part of the world are the Masai People,Maasai’s distinctive culture, dress style and strategic territory along the game parks of Kenya and Tanzania have made them one of East Africa’s most internationally famous tourist attractions.
The Maasai tribe (or Masai) is a unique and popular tribe due to their long preserved culture. Despite education, civilization and western cultural influences, the Maasai people have clung to their traditional way of life, making them a symbol of Kenyan culture
As with a lot of older cultures, The warrior is of great importance and a source of pride in the Maasai culture. To be a Maasai is to be born into one of the world’s last great warrior cultures. From boyhood to adulthood, young Maasai boys begin to learn the responsibilities of being a man (helder) and a warrior. The role of a warrior is to protect their animals from human and animal predators, to build kraals (Maasai homes) and to provide security to their families.
Through rituals and ceremonies, Maasai boys are guided and mentored by their fathers and other elders and taught the roles and responsibilities and how to become a Maasai and a warrior. Although they still live their carefree lives as boys – raiding cattle, chasing young girls, and game hunting – a Maasai boy must also learn all of the cultural practices, customary laws and responsibilities he’ll require as an elder.
The Must Do on a Kenya Safari – Migration
No wildlife event on the planet rivals East Africa’s Great Migration for sheer drama. Twice each year the enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra, two million strong, make a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains as they travel from Tanzania into Kenya’s famed Maasai Mara and back, following the new grass that sprouts with the seasonal rains. A host of predators follows in stealthy pursuit.
The key players in this 1,200-mile odyssey are the wildebeest – 1.5 million of them – accompanied by 200,000 zebras. For them, every year is an endless journey, chasing the rains in a race for life. The action takes place across 150,000 square miles of woodlands, hills and open plains, a wilderness that includes not only the Serengeti national park and Kenya’s Maasai Mara game reserve but also the dispersal areas beyond.
The yearly cycle begins in the south of the park, where half a million calves are born between January and March. But when the rains end in May the land dries fast and the grazing animals must move on, heading for their dry season refuge in the Maasai Mara.
