An exciting and fulfilling family experience

Sometimes it's good to add something active into a child's safari experience, in particular activities which help them realise that the wilderness they're in is home to many people, and these tribes have a very different way of life from their own.

The Warrior's Academy is the perfect way to give families with children an insight into the wildlife and wilderness as seen through the eyes of Maasai or Samburu tribesmen.

  • Wildlife tracking
  • Spear throwing contests
  • Exploring the plains on foot
  • Learn to make a fire
  • Herd cattle, milk goats
  • Find out about local customs and traditions

When to go

It is best to avoid the rainiest months of April and May when the long rains occur. November is the short rainy season, so you might want to avoid this too, but actually it can still be a good time to come and it tends not to rain all the time.
