Day 1 : Immersion in a Maasai family - Transhumance Trek - DAY 1

    Stop At: Lake Natron, Lake Natron, Arusha Region
    Very early in the morning, after a good breakfast, you will meet your Maasai host family near the starting point of the trek.

    You will start the ascent (3-4 hrs), with your guide and cook, escorted by donkeys that will carry food, camping equipment and your luggage, to reach the Leparakashi hills where you will discover their habitat (boma: set of huts built around the cattle pens). The scenery is breathtaking.

    After a little rest, with your guide, you will set up the tents or if you wish, you will sleep inside their hut.

    Once settled in, you will be able to exchange with the inhabitants of your "boma" (your guide will be able to translate your exchanges). They will learn how to wash you with very little water, how to satisfy you in the joy of life. You will then enjoy your dinner under the stars around a wood fire, while your guide explains their way of life and traditions.

    Afterwards, you will follow your hosts in their daily tasks: finding wood, following the herds in search of food, making the animals drink...

    Your guide will explain their way of life and traditions, you will be able to interact with your extended family, your guide will be your translator.

    The evening will be dedicated to the ritual of the sacrifice of a goat, they will suffocate it, skin it in front of you, the cooking of the meat will be done on a wood fire.
