Follow in the footsteps of Maasai communities

The Maasai people have been walking the plains of Africa for centuries, creating their culture and traditions through generations. On a ME to WE Trip to Kenya, Africa, we invite you to walk alongside the Maasai people as they carry out their day-to-day lives. Join mamas as they collect water from the Mara River, warriors as they train with traditional rungus, and farmers as they harvest crops for community schools.Take in all that Kenya and Africa have to offer, from our partner communities in the Maasai Mara, to a multi-day African safari, to a coastal retreat on the Kilifi coast. Each experience is made that much more meaningful as you also connect with the people who call Kenya and Africa home.
