Get Fit With Maasai Training On The Kenyan Plains

The famous Maasai warriors are amongst the fittest people in the world, covering long distances effortlessly. At Serian Camp in the Masai Mara you can enjoy the programme that keeps them at their peak fitness and combine it with your safari activities.

Days begin with long walks up an escarpment, along and back down along the Mara River with your trainer – all before midday. These have walks really get your heart pumping with inclining terrain as soon as you begin! This isn’t just a challenging exercise regime, it’s about having fun and being out in the wild as you get fit. You’ll pass by some fantastic views along the way and admire giraffe and zebra too. The escarpment walks will be timed every day, so you’ll be able to see how much you’ve progressed by the end of the programme. You’ll have a tasty al fresco breakfast en-route.

When you arrive back at camp, it’s time for a little stretching, a leisurely lunch and some relaxation. There are daily yoga workshops to help improve your flexibility and strength as well as relaxing the mind and body.

After tea it’s time to head out for an exciting game drive. The Masai Mara is one of the richest wildlife areas in the world, home to fierce predators, grazing plains game and lots of endearing smaller creatures. You’ll be accompanied by your experienced guide who will use their local knowledge to get you the very best views of the wildlife. The guides are all photographers too and they’ll be able to help you out with tips and tricks during your drives.

Whilst you’re at Serian you can compete in the Masai Olympics! Try your hand at spear throwing and bow and arrow shooting to fully embrace the Maasai culture!
