Along your travels you will stop to meet the local Masai people; a semi-nomadic tribe that have lived on this land for centuries and still hold on to their customs and way of living.

Be sure not to miss the stunning sunsets that are so rich in colour that you may question if they are real!

Following lunch and a siesta, there is an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets.
