The rest of the trip will be in a vast tract of land in Southern Kenya that is occupied almost exclusively by the Maasai people and includes one of the world’s premier game-viewing safari destinations, the Maasai Mara, where vast numbers of wild animals still roam freely including the “Big Five” lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino and the people still live lives that have remained largely unchanged for generations.

Before staying in the Maasai Mara Reserve itself the group will be spending their time as guests of three different communities, the Maji Moto, Siana Plains and Loita Maasai. John Blissett's association with these communities goes back many years and he has been given the local name of Nderekeyia and is an elder of the Labentera village. This association and the fact that all of the support staff are local means that while the group is in this area they effectively become part of the family and will be afforded the same rights and protection as would be given to any member of the tribe. There is very little crime or trouble in Maasailand as the area is strictly controlled by the tribal elders and a long tradition of respect for their rulings.

From Baringo the group will be driven across the floor of the Rift Valley before climbing over the end of the Mau mountain range to the bustling township of Narok, the capital of Maasailand, and then on to the village of Maji Moto in an area of hot, dry, dusty and windy open plains of scattered thornbush at the base of the Loita Hills. Close by are the hot springs that give the village its name – in Kiswahili Maji Moto literally translates as “hot water”. The springs are a constant source of clean water for the local people and their animals. Two areas are set aside for communal bathing, one for men and the other for women and the group will be taken there at the end of each day to take advantage of the bathing facilities. Sitting in the hot water, under the African sky, washing away the day’s dust is a unique and surreal experience.

The group will be staying at the Loita Plains Hotel which is a short drive from the high school at Maji Moto that the group will be visiting. The hotel has only recently been built by the local community and the people who set up and manage Riverside Camp in the Maasai Mara. The surrounding area is grazed by the local people's cattle and sheep as well as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and Thomson’s gazelle all of which can often be seen from the hotel.

It is near here that Willetts has set up a link with the local High School and the group will spend time visiting it and working with the staff and students there. Working with their peers will be a great opportunity for both groups of students to understand more about each other and how their lives are similar and where they differ.

At the end of each day the group will have the chance to relax by the hotel's small pool while they discuss the day's events and prepare for the next one.

From Maji Moto the group will move south, away from the Maji Moto Maasai, to a different Maasai community at the end of the Loita Hills near to the village of Olorte.
