About us

The Maasai are one of the last remaining indigenous tribal communities in East Africa. Although we have managed to keep most of our traditions and culture, our way of life is on the verge of change. Influences from the outside world, along with natural disasters such as drought, are quickly changing our way of life.

It is critical, now more than ever before, to preserve the last remaining and most important aspects of Maasai culture. After completion, the Maasai Cultural Heritage Center will provide the Maasai and foreign visitors the opportunity to see, learn, and celebrate Maasai cultural heritage through colorful and vibrant collections of intricate beadwork and artifacts of the past, present, and the future.

Maasai Cultural Heritage Center is a wonderful place for you to visit and experience the Maasai world while on holiday in Kenya. We would be delighted to see you here.

Community Benefit

In addition to heritage preservation, the center is aimed at expanding economic opportunities to the local people, mainly women artisans from Merrueshi village. Maasai Cultural Heritage Center empowers the women by giving them space to make and display quality beadwork sold to travelers visiting Amboseli National Park.

Our Conviction

The development and survival of the Maasai people is a matter of grave concern to us. We strongly believe we can bring sustainable social-economic development to the Maasai region, while preserving our cultural heritage. We do not have to abandon our traditions and culture to thrive in the modern world.
