This MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience educates our guests on the sustainability and resiliency of community and contributes to making the destination inclusive, resilient and sustainable for generations to come with a Samburu Village Visit. While at Sasaab or Loisaba Tented Camp, you can visit the hospitable Samburu people, who are delighted to show you their traditions and way of life.

The Samburu are a sub-tribe of the more well-known Maasai. As a semi-nomadic group, they herd cattle, sheep and goats. Originally from the Nile Valley, this group of Nilotic people migrated south hundreds of years ago to an area between Mount Kenya and Lake Turkana.

A member of the village will speak extensively about the transition to the different stages in life. Each is marked by ceremonies and rituals that have their beginnings in ancient tradition. Afterwards, the young men of the village will demonstrate adamu, commonly referred to as the jumping dance.  Guests will then be welcomed into a mantana, a hut made of cow-dung and branches, where each family lives.
