Having quality cultural experiences is both the easiest and most challenging facet to incorporate into a safari. The ‘easy’ comes from the organic cultural experience of just being in the company of your local guide, camp staff, and, depending on your location, passing through local towns along your journey.
Planning additional cultural visits is highly recommended and a wonderful way to learn. The challenge is finding low impact, less touristic opportunities that are located near excellent game viewing. This is not always an easy task but we have a list of recommended places that offer high quality cultural interactions with the Maasai, Samburu, Taita, Mijikenda, Kalenjin and many others. There are also more cosmopolitan opportunities in larger cities and villages.
