9 Days Mtkenya hike ,Maasai mara and majimoto Cultural Dance Safari in Kenya

Mount Kenya peak tours and safaris facilitate your opportunity to explore and enjoy the diverse Kenya cultural tours and traditional practices of different tribes of Kenya. The major tribes in Kenya are Luo, Kalenjin, Kamba, Kikuyu and Luhya which together account for 70% of the total population. In their rural homes, these Kenya tribes exhibit distinct Kenya cultural code of practices and traditions peculiar to each other [pretty different from the others].

We are flexible in these Kenya cultural safaris itineraries as the number of days to participate in depends on which tribe, season, occasion and distance from the starting point. Kenya has a culture born of countless sources. This region has been crossed by the paths of a long and complex history. From the prehistoric records of early man to the present day, Kenya has been a land of unending change, contrasts and diversity. The early tribal states saw cycles of migration and shifting power, with Kenya as a meeting place for peoples from the plain lands of the south, the forests of the West and the deserts of the North.

Maasai Culture

One of Kenya best known tribes, the Masai believe that God gave them exclusive rights over all cattle in the world. They were a warring tribe and may have dominated Kenya at one time, had there not been three catastrophes that brought them under British rule. In the 1880s there was a Rindepest outbreak that dwindled their herds. This was followed by an outbreak of smallpox and finally, their great leader Mbatyany, died and they could not decide on a new leader. This led to a great deal of fighting amongst themselves during which time the British were able to gain control of the land.

The Maasai people do not hunt wildlife but they can be lethal killers of Lions, as a tribal custom as well as to protect their livestock. The Maasai tribe is the most authentic ethnic tribe of Kenya. The Maasai tribe is a unique and popular tribe in Kenya due to their long preserved Kenya culture. Despite education, civilization and western cultural influences, the Maasai people in Kenya have clung to their traditional way of life, making them a symbol of Kenyan culture.
