Adventure Dragon Safari facilitate your opportunity to explore and enjoy the diverse Kenya cultural Tours and traditional practices of different tribes of Kenya. The major tribes in Kenya are Luo, Kalenjin, Kamba, Kikuyu and Luhya which together account for 70% of the total population. In their rural homes, these tribes exhibit distinct cultural code of practices and traditions peculiar to each [pretty different from the others]. We are flexible in these itineraries as the number of days depends on which tribe, season, occasion and distance from the starting point.

MAASAI CULTURE
One of Kenya best known tribes, the Masai believe that God gave them exclusive rights over all cattle in the world. They were a warring tribe and may have dominated Kenya at one time, had there not been three catastophes that brought them under British rule. In the 1880s there was a Rindepest outbreak that dwindled their herds. This was followed by an outbreak of smallpox and finally, their great leader Mbatyany, died and they could not decide on a new leader. This led to a great deal of fighting amongst themselves durring which time the British were able to gain control of the land. The Masai people do not hunt wildlife but they can be lethal killers of Lions, as a tribal custom as well as to protect their livestock.
 
SAMBURU CULTURE
The Samburu are part of the Masai group and have common customs and language (Maa). They range from Laikipa to Mt Nyiro and these graceful people are charming, beautiful and witty. Their lifestyle is very similair to that of the Laikipia Masai living in a mud and wattle style houses with the livestock enclosure in the middle of the boma. Steeped in tradition, the Samburu mark each stage of life with a ceremony and like the Masai, these ceremonies observe large age groupings
 
TURKANA CULTURE
The Turkana are also a Nilo-Hamitic people and like the Pokot migrated from Eastern Uganda. The Turkana occupy land in the northern section of Kenya. They take great pride in their elaborate Ostrich headresses and are generally thought of as a very tough people, surviving off a harsh, dry land. The Turkana keep camels, goats, cattle and sheep and supplement their diet with Nile Perch that they net and spear from the shallows of Lake Turkana.
 
RENDILLE CULTURE
The Rendile are a handsome people ranging from Lake Turkana to Marsabit and are always on the move with their camels and livestock. The Rendille are Mohammedan and they are the only tribe in East Africa whose women wear a coxcomb hairstyle. They live chiefly on camel milk, blood and occasionally meat and for water they often must travel great distances. A long time ago the men were circumcised between twenty to twenty five years, but now the age is between fifteen and twenty and each young man has to present the circumiser with a goat.
 
POKOT CULTURE
The Pokot are a Nilo-Hamitic peoples who migrated from the Nile Valley of Sudan about 200 years ago. They occupy north-eastern Kenya, stretching from Lake Baringo to Lake Turkana. They are nomadic people and live of the land in this remarkably dry area. Some Pokot are sedentary while others keep livestock. Some Pokot farm on the steppes of the Rift Valley while others herd livestock in semi arid lands.. They are very decorative people, often wearing plumes of ostrich feathers in a mud and wattle cap that is moulded on the back of their head.
