Masai Mara Conservation Program
AKP Project Since 1982
AKP helps the Maasai manage their traditional homeland
The natural resources and astounding biodiversity of the Masai Mara draw visitors from around the globe. In 1982 AKP formalized our long history of collaboration with local Maasai communities to plan their own development and enterprise priorities. AKP programs include building classrooms; sponsoring student school fees; developing micro-enterprise initiatives for women’s groups; encouraging early literacy through the introduction of digital e-readers (Kindles) now in nine schools; and introducing local Maasai children to their natural heritage with field trips into the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Visit a local school to see how children learn in rural Africa, meet with members of a Maasai village to take part in local customs or shop for an authentic craft from a women’s micro-enterprise bead-making group.
A&K can include a visit to local Maasai communities on a Tailor Made Journey to the Masai Mara. Contact our offices in Australia, the UK or the USA for assistance in creating an itinerary just for you. Guests travelling on the Luxury Small Group Journeys The Great Migration Safari in Style, Kenya and Tanzania Wildlife Safari, Kenya Safari in Style and Family Kenya Safari, as well as Signature Great Migration Safari and Signature Kenya and Tanzania, also visit local Maasai communities.
