Life Changing!
“I was moved to tears hearing some of these women stories! They are strong and I am so grateful to have met them. We made bracelets, shared laughter, danced and drank tea. Best time and if I could I would give this 10 stars!!”

Strongly recommended
“Amazing day with inspiring Masai ... Spending a day with them dancing, making jewellery and sharing experiences from our different cultures was wonderful. Thanks OneHorizon.net! Our guides were excellent; very welcoming and punctual. Their warm personality allowed for great conversation, particularly on the importance of empowering women. I strongly recommend booking this tour, which will contribute to the One Horizon Programs that have strong positive impacts in supporting women and young children.”

Life affirming tour
“A life affirming tour that definitely should not be missed. My heart is full. Sitting with a Masai woman and learning the art of beadwork with her capable hands (in Maasai enkirina enkaina), while hearing her story and how she overcame it ALL is so amazing. She is my shujaa (Maasai for hero). I am overwhelmed. Her Story Matters. I also picked up amazing pieces at unbelievable prices to add to the Kenya collection. I am recommending this to everyone I possibly can. I left feeling like family.”

Well worth the time and money
“This was truly a special outing. Such a privilege to meet ... incredibly strong, beautiful women. The afternoon of jewellery making was lovely - a nice way to interact. The area that we visited was so beautiful - very peaceful. Solomon and all of the supporting staff were truly wonderful - they took great care of me. They are tremendously dedicated and passionate individuals. I learned a lot from them during our conversations. All in all, a unique tourist experience that also gives back. Well worth the time and money.”
