Living like the Maasai
The hunter-gatherers of the Maasai people are known as Dorobo. Inspired by the wanderings of the Dorobo people, we are delighted to offer the unique opportunity to partake in several days of walking and mobile camping providing you direct contact with nature and wildlife in private and secluded sites within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy.
Dorobo is the result of years of admiration and respect for the wandering hunter-gatherers of the Maasai people.
Spending whole days of wandering with your Maasai guide the true walking safari specialists, friendships for life are born and memories of a lifetime are secured.
Walking safaris with the true experts, the Maasai, you rely on their wisdom and experience when you encounter the wildlife.
Our walks start in the morning from a chosen location, typically the camps. Following a few hours of walking, picnic lunch is served in the shade of a tree. The afternoon walk takes you to the campsite where specially designed mobile tents and a fireplace await. Following a wholesome in-the-bush dinner, there will be storytelling and stargazing around the fireplace. By removing all unnecessary distractions we aim to bring guests closer to the very essence of the African Savannah. By walking with the Maasai you will get an authentic insight into the culture of the Maasai people – our friends and partners. The duration of the safari program can be adjusted to suit guest preferences.
The price is based on two persons sharing a tent. Price includes accommodation, all meals, mineral water, full-day walking safaris, airstrip transfers and Mara Naboisho Conservancy fees. Extra fees are additional beverages, domestic or international flights. Note that Dorobo Mobile Camp has a minimum number of 4 guests.
