Learn the ways of a warrior with the African bush as your classroom. Beginning 1 August, children visiting Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp in the Maasai Mara are invited to join in a Maasai Warrior session. Under the tutelage of Kinyaika, one of the oldest trackers in the business, and the Maasai team, learn skills Maasai Warriors have mastered.
Skills that will be taught, depending on ages and ability, include fire making; spear throwing’ bow and arrow practice; Maasai jumping, dancing and singing and stone throwing. Full board accommodation rates start at $530 per person sharing.
Proud parents can cheer from the sidelines, join in on the fun or leave the traditions to student and teacher and go on safari during this time. Sessions last between two and three hours.
