The One Horizon 2-day Family Ties cultural tour is a rare opportunity to visit families in their homes from two different Kenyan ethnic groups – the Maasai and the Kikuyu. You’ll also see how Kenyan families are merging their traditional culture with contemporary ways to build new, bright and sustainable futures. You’ll be warmly welcomed into a Maasai village and your hosts will show their age-old way of life and rites of passage. Then, while visiting a Kikuyu family, you’ll see how a farming enterprise assists grandmother-headed households. This tour will give you deep insight into the customs and structures of rural Kenyan family life and the highlight is the genuine interaction you will experience by sharing stories and laughter.

Maasai Family Ties
Today you drive to a Maasai village where you spend the day with the men, women and children, and one of the elders, Daniel, will take you on a tour to explain how the Maasai have managed these precious lands. Help them build a new manyatta – a traditional Maasai home while Maasai warriors will teach about local plants to make medicinal remedies, In the afternoon the women will share their stories as they help you make your own piece of traditional beautifully-crafted beaded Maasai jewellery.
Kikuyu Family Ties
There are many grandmother-headed households in Kenya that care for a number of generations. Today you are hosted by gracious grandmother Helen at her rural home, who will introduce you to her large Kikuyu family. She will show you around her pig farm, and you can pitch in with the chores if you’d like to. This is a project supported by One Horizon as an initiative to improve the livelihoods of grandmothers.
