Maasai Warrior Experience for Kids

Last updated 3rd January 2017

What’s new? Cottar’s fabulous bohemian-chic 1920s safari camp in Kenya has recently introduced a Maasai Warrior experience for children that is bound to send health and safety officials into a frenzy.

Fire making, spear throwing, and bow and arrow practice are all among the essential skills a Maasai warrior needs to perfect. Led by one of the tribe’s elders Kinyaika, the course will give parents the chance to take a solo game drive or indulge in a romantic sundowner over the African plains.  

The camp sleeps up to 28 guests, canopied under a white canvas surrounded by an Aladdin’s cave of antiques and trinkets. In keeping with the colonial-style, all tents have en-suite bathrooms, dressing rooms and a veranda to sip your G&T on. 

Price: Tents cost from from £331 a night per person on full board. This includes soft drinks, beer, house wine and spirits; guided bush walks;? bush meals; sundowners; day and night game drives; half an hour complimentary massage; Cottars Airstrip transfers; transfers for cultural visits and laundry.

Getting there: Fly from London to Nairobi with Emirates from £632 and with Kenya Airways from £730. Kenya Airways and Safarilink both fly to Keekorok. 

Travel time: The flight from London to Nairobi is 8 hours and 30 minutes. Travelling from Nairobi to Keekorok then takes 1 hour and 30 minutes.
