You like the outdoors, and you enjoy being in remote places. You have a keen interest in different cultures from your own, but you are no spectator: you want to see them from the inside, and try to do things as the locals do. You like the challenge of learning new skills. But this is also your holiday: you want the comforts and safety that will make you relax and lay back.
Welcome to Bush Adventures' Maasai Warrior trainings: experience the authentic essence of Kenya’s most independent people and live with them today as they have lived for generations. At night, enjoy the delicious food of our chef, relax around the fire with the warriors, and fall asleep in our wonderful 4 poster beds, with the calls of wild animals as the only sound for miles.
The Introductory Warrior training will give you a good insight into Maasai culture.Some of the activities you will do with us:
- Learn how to use traditional weapons: bow and arrow, spear, shield, throwing stones, wrestling, throwing sticks
- Learn to track animals and people
- Hike the nearby hills and enjoy the stunning view

We are part of the local community: Silas, one of the owners, is from the area and so are all our employees. We also contribute to the Maasai community in the Isiolo/ Leparua area by
* Providing qualified jobs for people with higher education that allow them to continue their traditional lifestyle: our trainers are high school graduates and for their job they practice and teach warrior skills
* Providing employment: we employ almost exclusively local staff, both on a salary and on a casual basis
* Increasing trade: we purchase many products and services locally
* Improving security: we have brought more rangers to the area
* Providing support to the schools: we have started a scheme that brings volunteer teachers in the community schools
Our presence has minimal impact on the fragile local environment:
* No running water or electricity at the camp: we fetch water with buckets from the river, and minimize its usage. We use solar powered lights all around the camp. We use no fridge- only coolboxes
* No use of vehicles in any of our activities- we only keep them for emergencies and logistics
* We separate organic rubbish and compost it
* No tree or shrub has been cut to accommodate our camp
We welcome suggestions on how to be more eco-friendly!
