Things to do in Kenya

Explore on foot with a Maasai guide at Tawi Lodge

The great thing about a bush walk is that you’re not in a safari vehicle, you have time to stop and take in the landscape…

By Daniel Heatly
Product Executive for Alfred&

Join a Maasai guide from Tawi Lodge for a bush walk in their private conservancy, which borders Amboseli National Park. While exploring the 3,000-acre conservancy, you’ll learn about the native plants and shrubs used by the Maasai community for medicine and to produce natural dyes. Your guide will also help you identify animal footprints and explain everything along the way. There’s plenty of wildlife to spot and you’ll be accompanied by security, so it’s a very safe experience.

The great thing about a bush walk is that you’re not in a safari vehicle, you’re closer to everything and have time to stop and take in the sights and smells of the bush. You can hear the birds singing, spot insects on the ground and notice tiny details you wouldn’t on a game drive. You’ll learn a lot from the Maasai guide; there’s also a chance to take a cultural visit to the nearby village, where you’ll meet the community and learn more about their ancient culture and traditions.

Alfred & Daniel Heatly

Upon leaving university, Daniel blindly placed a pin into a map (we kid you not!) to select South Africa as the first destination he ever travelled to. This was the beginning of a 23 year love affair with African travel. Subsequent adventures have taken him to Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, meeting new people and discovering new experiences along the way.

Your journey will start with one of our UK team – someone like Annette, who's travelled extensively in Kenya. They’ll shape your ideas into the trip of a lifetime. But they won't do it alone. They'll draw on the expertise of our contacts on the ground, connecting you to the people who'll make your holiday one you'll always remember - the rangers who'll ensure you'll spot the best wildlife in the Mara, the village chiefs who'll give you a genuine insight into local life and the camp managers who can recommend the very best spot for your sundowner.
