News Blurb: Kenya, Walk the Footsteps of a Masai Warrior

With the Warrior for a Week program at Saruni's three safari lodges - Saruni Mara, Saruni Samburu and Saruni Samburu - anyone can learn the survival skills of world class warriors. No other adventure offers this exploration and education of wildlife, wilderness and 'life' from one of the most well-known and interesting cultures left in Africa, the Masai. The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local people are an important part of the experience at Saruni Mara, Saruni Samburu and Saruni Wild.

Each individual is trained and taught in the same way as a junior warrior of the Masai. Under the tutelage of their 'Moran,' or Warrior class, guests gain survival skills, become naturals with a bow and arrow, track animals, craft tools and build a nomadic home. Under close instruction, the apprentice sees how the Masai and their warriors view the world and live amongst its wild creatures. For instance, the lodge called Saruni Mara is set in a remote valley of forests and hills overlooking the open savannas within the most exciting wildlife sanctuary of Africa, the Masai Mara. Accommodation is for 14 guests in six uniquely styled cottages. Each cottage has elegant Italian bathroom fittings, polished wooden floors and large bathrooms with canvas fronts that can be opened to offer a "shower with a view." The lodge also offers its own private spa treatment center, the "Masai Well-Being Space." These safari lodges are part of Cheli & Peacock's 'C&P Portfolio', a collection of 14 eco-tourism lodges located in the best parks of Kenya.
