Dining in Maasai Mara
Most of the Mara’s lodges and camps offer full board accommodation with meals, serving a wide range of cuisines. For those camping out in the wild, most safari companies provide an excellent camp cook, who can produce culinary wonders from a campfire. For campers wanting to cook for themselves, the nearest town for supplies is Narok, although many of the larger Maasai settlements sell basic supplies.

Many lodges and camps also organize special bush dinners or breakfasts, with meals served in the wild.

For the adventurous diner, a visit or stay among a Maasai community will allow them to try traditional Maasai cuisine. Maasai delicacies include sour milk, and on special occasions, fresh blood taken either from a live cow or freshly slaughtered animal.
