Where in the world

Samburuland, Kenya

Learn more about the bright-beaded collars worn by the women of the Samburu Tribe when you visit a traditional manyatta. Discover the hidden messages within this elaborate jewellery and see the warriors gather to dance during an exclusive glimpse into the life of this colourful Kenyan tribe.

Ol Malo lodge works closely with the local people to ensure their traditions survive in the modern world. In return for this goodwill, guests are invited to visit an enclosure in the heart of Samburuland for an exchange of cultures.

Like the Maasai, the Samburu follow the rain in search of fresh pasture and water for their cattle, camels, goats and sheep. You’ll join the women in the beading workshop. Learn how the colourful collars reveal subtle clues about their wealth and status. This is the place to buy an authentic souvenir as you know it will directly help these women support their families. You may also witness a traditional dance by the tribal warriors – providing that picture-perfect moment.

Additional notes about the tour

Included with stays at Ol Malo lodge. Visits are dependent on the agreement of the village chief. This is a true and authentic experience.
