About the Event


This is an adventure for people who want to change their lives and make a difference in the world. 

You have the opportunity to understand the tribal, cultural wisdom of the Inkankare Masai villagers who know how to connect, interceonnect, and live interdependently as a community with one another and with the wild life that surrounds them.  And...there is much more, you will be inspired by the wild life on these vast plains ingrained with waterways teaming with bird life, buffalos, elephant families frolicking in the mud, lions and lionesses, pompous warthogs, elegant flamingos, delicate duikers, and many more facinating creatures. 


Each day will be filled with stalking lions, learning truths from the oldest elephants researched in history, and walking with the Masai. Eight years ago I was welcomed and accepted into this Masai village just outside of the Amboseli National Park which is without boundaries, Mount Kilimanjaro watches over you and the elephants trustingly saunter past. This Masai community will welcome you into their village to share their unique culture and lifestyle. They are people who care deeply for one another and will show us how to be earth lovers too. Through their wisdom and life stories we can learn to laugh, dance, live more simply and value the wilderness and wildlife that surrounds us more deeply.


We will stay at the 4**** Serena Lodge, with spacious rooms, shady garden spaces, and a sparkling pool. The lodge overlooks the Amboseli plains teaming with wildlife, birds, bucks, and the frequent sightings of the colorful Masai herdsmen and herdswomen who thread their way through the wilderness tapestry with their nomadic goats and cattle.

A bountiful breakfast is provided and there is a restaurant on site where you will be served by Masai staff members with their beaming smiles.


Each day we will safari across the Amboseli plains and be inspired by the wildlife living there, or we will walk alongside our Masai friends and guides to learn the use of local plants. They share their hearts for adapting to climate change as they experience drought after drought, and become avid agriculturalists as well as peaceful pastoralists.

If you would like to you can contribute back into ther lives, have fun and engage with the educational activities of the village children. Plant trees together. Learn beautiful beading work with the Masai women, build a Masai hut from local materials,  or even erect a treetop tent to provide the Masai with additional income from tourists who will stay in the treetop tent enjoying the panoramic views.

Daily, Mandy Young Ecopsychologist, will facilitate friendly post-safari and post Masai-encounter discussion groups, so that you gain take-home, life-changing understandings. Your life perceptions will never be the same after Meeting the Masai and the elephants of the Amboseli plains.


Mandy Young has a long and privileged association with the Masai village people you will meet. Mandy and her husband have walked a long journey of many years with this wonderful community. You can hear how her story with the Masai began on her facebook page:
