Immerse yourself in the kenyan culture living for 24 hours in a Maasai village at the foot of the Suswa volcano, a truly authentic experience and only suitable for adventurers that you will not forget so easily. After meeting at the meeting point in Suswa Town, we will make a motorcycle ride driven by the Maasai for almost an hour through dusty roads in the savannah until we reach the village where they live. We will leave our backpacks and go to see some volcanic caves. We will dine on their typical food and sleep in “Manyattas” which are the traditional Masai houses where they live. The next day after breakfast we will start a 4 to 5 hour excursion to the highest peak of the volcano with a local guide and after lunch we will return to Suswa Town to drop us off at the same place where we were picked up.
We recommend comfortable clothing, slippers, flashlight, wet wipes, sunscreen, and toilet paper or tissues.
Warning: we recommend something to cover the backpacks for the motorcycle trip due to the dust that gets up produced by them. The village has no light so it is essential to use a flashlight at night. We also recommend buying bottles of water in Suswa Town before going to the village because there is no running water and there are no toilets, the needs are done outdoors, like them.
During the trek, if you are tired you can turn around whenever you want, remember to put sun protection on.
