Meet the Maasai: Sat 2nd - Sun 3rd July (Twycross Zoo, Warwickshire)
This weekend meet the Oloip Maasai dancers who’ve travelled from the Great Rift Valley in Kenya to show off their world-famous dancing at Twycross Zoo.
Dressed in brightly coloured robes and intricate beaded jewellery, the dancers will have drumming and dancing sessions and storytelling where they will be sharing stories about cultural heritage.
There will also be craft lessons demonstrating bush skills and audiences will learn how to make traditional jewellery.
This is a fantastic opportunity for all our visitors to learn about life in a traditional Maasai village in Kenya and what it is like to live in a wonderfully diverse habitat with animals like our giraffe and zebra and to support the Oloip Maasai dancers in their bid to raise awareness.”
