Frequently Asked Questions
FULL DISCLOSURE: you will watch a goat being slaughtered! If you're okay with that, please read on. We went to a local Maasai market to pick up some sides and drinks as well as look at the goat market. We then took a long, dusty, bumpy road to a Maasai village where we met the very friendly male members of the group. They slaughtered a goat and then cooked it. While it cooked, we walked around the village and met more goats and cows as well as some very curious kids. The people were very friendly and loved telling us about their culture and their people. We ate the goat (not my fav!) as well as the food we brought. It was truly unique and I defintely recommend the experience (despite the dusty, bumpy ride!).
