Economadism offers visitors the unique opportunity to experience Maasai life upclose.

    Become part of a traditional Maasai community and choose from a range of activities and tour options, depending on your wishes and physical abilities. Activities and tour options can be seen as ‘building blocks’, which can be strung together to create a multi-day or multi-week tour.

    Activities can be arranged and combined per day.
    Tour options can have a duration of one day or multiple days, depending on the type of tour and your wishes.

    A representative from Economadism will pick you up from your point of arrival and take you to the village of Enkorika, about 100 km south of Nairobi.
    You will stay in a traditional Maasai village and house that has specifically been redesigned to accommodate visitors.
    Do not expect five star hotel conditions, although we will try to make it as comfortable for you as possible.

    If so desired we can accommodate you in an eco-lodge nearby.

    Kimana Sanctuary

    Kimana is a lesser-known game reserve and thoroughfare for animals passing between Amboseli and Chyulu Hills/ Tsavo National Parks. The sanctuary is communally owned by more than 800 local Maasai, who in 1996 had the vision to set-aside this land as the very first community conservancy in Kenya. For visitors, it is a wonderful place to observe peaceful and relaxed animals in a beautiful environment. With Mount Kilimanjaro to the south and the Chyulu Hills distantly to the north, the views are spectacular.
    It is possible to camp in the reserve, or opt for a more luxurious tented lodge or safari lodge.

    Masai Mara National Wildlife Reserve

    Masai Mara is a unique wildlife conservation haven known for its stunning natural diversity of species. Africa’s iconic images of massive herds of wildebeest and zebra trekking across the African plains are only part of the Masai Mara’s wildlife appeal. The Mara is also one of the best places on earth to spot most of the ‘Big Five’ while out on safari.

    Mount Suswa Conservancy

    Mount Suswa is a spectacular double-crater volcano located at the very the heart of the Rift Valley. The Conservancy is entirely run by the Maasai community that lives inside the conservancy. All fees go towards preserving, not just the park, but also the lifestyle of those who live in it.
    Its inner volcano soars to an altitude of 2,356 meters above sea level. The inner crater is covered by a forest that is also home to leopards, hyenas, buffaloes, antelopes and other wildlife, and has a breath-taking view that has to be seen to be believed.
    The outer crater is currently dotted with Maasai homesteads. The Maasai graze their livestock on the outer crater and the slopes of the inner volcano, and harvest water for their domestic use from the numerous springs spouting steam and hot water in this area.
    The inner volcanic crater provides a beautiful ridge walk to the highest point.
    The caves are easily accessible and can be entered via multiple cave openings. You will see colonies of bats hanging from the roof as you make your way through the tunnels. The most famous cave is known as the “Baboon Parliament’, because every day, dozens of baboons gather in it to seek refuge from predators at night and supposedly to listen to their leader.
