Walking Safari with the Maasai People Tanzania
Theres no better way to explore the wilds of Africa than on foot and no better guides and guardians than the Maasai, who have inhabited the land for generations. This is a unique opportunity to see lions, buffalo, elephants and giraffes without being confined to a metal tin.
