EXPERIENCE MAASAI LIFE

Their traditional knowledge, often narrated in the form of folktales, songs, stories, poetry, and chants, contains a wide-range of knowledge about traditional medicine, grazing practices, landscape ecology, the behavior of animals, livestock management, and the gathering of wild plant foods. Maasai pastoralists represent the highest degree of pastoral specialization in the Eastern-Sudanic region of East Africa. Maasai peoples, however, also combine livestock herding with other economic activities such as cultivation, trade, and gathering. Because of their dependence on natural resources to sustain livestock and human populations (such as natural watering sites, grazing areas, agricultural land, and drought reserves), many Maasai groups that historically depended on community grazing structures and local, opportunistic agriculture suffered economically when they were forced onto smaller parcels of settled land. This conflict arose as colonial, and later local governments began instituting land reform programs that transformed Maasai lands in Kenya and Tanzania into group ranches, privatized settler farms, national parks, game reserves, and hunting areas. In 1911, Maasai lands in Kenya were reduced by 60 percent when the British evicted them to make room for settler ranches, subsequently confining them to present-day Kajiado and Narok districts. Maasai lands were further enclosed to allow for the creation of game parks, including Amboseli, Nairobi, and Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti/Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. Ndagala states that were the colonial and post-colonial eviction of the pastoralists from some of their best grazing lands were rationalized to protect the wildlife. The transfer of these lands has served to enclose many pastoral and semi agricultural groups onto parcels of lands that are unsuitable for either semi-nomadic pastoralism or agriculture at a sustainable level. After independence, Tanzania implemented a socialist policy of villagazation, a program to promote sustainability, development, and nationalism. In Maasai areas, this meant that people were physically resettled into bomas, a circular cluster of homes. The bomas, which were formerly kin settlements, were now neighborly groupings of individual families. In 1976, the government officially resettled the Maasai in Monduli and gave them a maximum of three acres of land each to farm (Ndagala: 1982). Whereas the Maasai previously thought of grazing fields as a community resource (Ndagala 1992), each family now owned its own plot of land. In the shift to a more sedentary lifestyle, the Maasai in Monduli Juu became a pastoralist community where they cultivated both maize and beans and kept extensive herds of livestock. In this sense, they were likened to ilmeek, outsiders or non-Maasai, whom they had formerly despised because they did not value grass, a significant source of life for pastoralists (Galaty 1981:4; Hodgson 1999). In the words of one woman in Eluai Village, “There used to be so many cows that the grass would not reach the door of the house; now there is [unused] grass everywhere.” This subsequently placed the Maasai at odds with their environment, both culturally and economically. Without livestock, a Maasai male is presented with many difficulties. These difficulties include the inability to obtain sufficient food, lack of money to buy grains, inability to put up a good house, and if unmarried, he may not be able to attract a wife. Thus, the privatization of land ultimately increased the relative poverty of those living in Eluai and led to a more individualistic view of maintaining the environment. Instead of protecting the communal character of grazing lands, those who cultivated farms destroyed grass; an act seen as an aggression against Engai. As a result, trees, which were formerly regarded as objects of refuge, ritual, and healing, became capital to be owned and used or sold in the same way livestock once was, by whoever held the land they grew on. 1. Engai is the Maasai name for God. In the Maasai language, en- is the feminine prefix and God is associated with femininity; as a mother creator and protector of all natural things.

GET A UNIQUE VIEW IN SERENGETI.



Each day at dawn over the African Serengeti Plains, a fortunate few enjoy this ultimate and luxury hot air balloon safaris experience. An exclusive hot air balloon animals safaris over the Serengeti plains, offering unparalleled panoramic views of the awe-inspiring landscape, offering exceptional opportunities for taking stunning animals photos and possible big five pictures. It includes a pre-dawn collection for these luxury safaris from your luxury African game lodge to the hot air balloon launch site near Masai Kopjes. Here you will meet your hot air balloon pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of the hot air balloon. This is the only time you will be allowed to move about the Serengeti during the hours of darkness and you may just glimpse some nocturnal animals, unusual sights and the possibility to take some very unique animals pictures and photos.

Two Serengeti hot air balloons, capable of carrying 12 passengers each, fly once every day. At dawn they take off, rising as the African sun rises and floating in whichever direction the wind of the morning takes them. The pilot can control the altitude of the hot air balloon: sometimes taking you up to 1,000-foot altitude for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Serengeti plains or flying at treetop height, offering a unique perspective and great pictures and photos of the Serengeti wildlife animals below. More often than not, the early part of the flight is along the course of the Seronera River, an ideal location to get pictures and photos of some animals taking an early morning drink. Lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, hippo, cheetah, vultures, eagles, wildebeest, zebra, baboon, warthog, monkey, giraffe and pictures and photos of many other animals’ species is possible. The hot air balloon pilot will help you spot and identify the animals below.

From time to time, the pilot will need to put more heat into the giant hot air balloon, and there is a gentle roar from the burners, which for obvious reason provides the opportunity for stunning pictures and photos. Between burns there are periods of peaceful silence as you drift onwards. The whole trip is one long Serengeti pictures photos opportunity. You are travelling on a totally stable vibration-free platform with a unique perspective and nothing to block your view, which will provide you with a once in a lifetime opportunity to take absolute unique and great animals pictures and photos.

All good things have to come to an end and your pilot will let you know when it is time to put away the cameras and crouch down in the landing position. Once everyone is out of the hot air balloon, the cork is popped and the chilled champagne is poured for a toast on this unique African safaris experience and some pictures and photos to remember this great experience by.

After the champagne, it is off to the breakfast table, which will have been set up under a fine umbrella tree selected by the crew, close to the landing spot. Serving a full, cooked English breakfast with some tropical additions, “Out of Africa” style – a fine spread served on bone china with silver cutlery and crystal glasses.

Enjoy the food, the African Serengeti scenery and your companions’ company. You will receive your Serengeti Hot Air Balloon certificate before being driven back to your luxury safari Lodge or campsite, viewing game animals en route. You will still have most of the day ahead for game drives.

LIONS AT SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK



Did you know? Only male lions boast manes, the impressive fringe of long hair that encircles their heads. Males defend the pride's territory, which may include some 100 square miles (259 square kilometers) of grasslands, scrub, or open woodlands. These intimidating animals mark the area with urine, roar menacingly to warn intruders, and chase off animals that encroach on their turf.
Female lions are the pride's primary hunters. They often work together to prey upon antelopes, zebras, wildebeest, and other large animals of the open grasslands. Many of these animals are faster than lions, so teamwork pays off.

After the hunt, the group effort often degenerates to squabbling over the sharing of the kill, with cubs at the bottom of the pecking order. Young lions do not help to hunt until they are about a year old. Lions will hunt alone if the opportunity presents itself, and they also steal kills from hyenas or wild dogs.
Lions have been celebrated throughout history for their courage and strength. They once roamed most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe. Today they are found only in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, except for one very small population of Asian lions that survives in India's Gir Forest.

National Geographic is working to prevent the extinction of lions, cheetahs, and other big cats with the Big Cats Initiative, a comprehensive program that supports innovative projects. Learn how you can help save these animals by traveling with us..
