Over the past 12 months and since COVID-19 impacted on the arrival of guests, the Maasai villagers in our communities have been busy beautifying their homes and village.  The first improvement was unashamedly self-interest driven.  With leopards and hyena’s constant nighttime raiders of their herds, their own safety was at risk.  So, they surrounded their village with a traditional thorn fence (kayaba bush) which stops even the most determined predators.  And once their security was assured, they set about planting new trees and establishing a stone path to enable disabled guests to visit.  Today the village looks beautiful and provides a safe home for families and a great place to welcome guests.
