Our visit started at 3:30 as part of a day tour, where we watched the different cultural dances until 5pm. One has to be attentive though because they will explain the dances shortly before each one. When we all started filing out of the auditorium,...More

They have tried to authentically create the villages. There are placards of information at the entrance of each village setting but ou guide revealed more info ( he was Masai) so we had an enriching experience.
