WALKING WITH THE MAASAI
Traveling 200km across Kenya, Stuart Butler with his Maasai guide Josphat Mako share their story of an incredible journey exploring traditional cultures and contemporary Maasai lifestyles.
Embarking from the high, remote and forested Loita Hills they headed west, skirting the edge of the world famous Masai Mara National Reserve, passing through private and community conservancies before finishing at the foot of the Oloololo Escarpment. During the expedition across traditional Maasai land, Stuart and Mako visited numerous Maasai villages known as manyattas spending time with both past and present generations of Maasai people.
Stuart learned about their traditional cultures and contemporary Maasai lifestyles, and the pressure of the modern world and the 21st Century, conservation, political pressures and tourism, all of which influence and contribute to Maasai life today.
