Maasai Warriors Scrap Lion Hunt for Olympics An alumni just sent me a cool story they found on NBC and a short message thanking us for setting up such a great safari in Tanzania for them: "A highlight of our Tanzania safari this year was our exposure to the Maasai. Thanks for setting us up for an unforgettable journey of discovery!"  It got me thinking that I'd also love to share this story with you. In addition, I added a clip of one of our Maasai leaders talking about their spear competitions and video of them throwing their spears below. Something we often witness on many of our Kenya safaris and Tanzania safaris. Plus, our guests actually get to practice it with the warriors!
