Herbalist – A visit to a traditional healer known as Daktari wa Miti Shamba is a fascinating experience and an opportunity to learn about traditional medicine practiced by the Maasai. These traditions and recipes are sadly fading and there is a sense of urgency in the scientific world to preserve the knowledge of these traditional remedies because tests have shown that many have significant medicinal and curative benefits.
Many of the lodges and camps in the Masai Mara national and even some of the private ranches will arrange a visit for you with a local herbalist if you are interested in learning more about this fascinating subject.
