Out of the many accommodations we looked for our trip to Maasai Mara, one stood out:
Oseki Maasai Mara Camp.
When we started to chalk out our trip to Kenya, we jotted down activities that would give us a truly authentic experience. Even though due to exigent circumstances, this first visit ended up being a short one missing out a few interesting places, one activity we refused to compromise with was the chance to interact closely with people from the Maasai tribe. That opportunity came about in the form of an invitation from the Oseki Maasai Mara Camp.
Oseki Maasai Mara Camp
We knew this is where the real action was. The camp was just a short distance outside the game reserve, and owned, in part, by a Maasai warrior named Dennis who was 100% local through a unique mixing of nature and nurture. While almost all tourists to the region came for the safari and only seldom visited the local Maasai to experience their culture from the outside, we were destined to live among them and get an understanding of their ways of living in a manner we had always yearned for.
