This is the heartland of the Maasai people of southwestern Kenya. The Kenyan extension of the Serengeti plains, Loita area epitomizes the authentic African Savannah-endless plains interspersed with thorny acacia trees, grasslands and bush and scrub. Maasai herdsmen dot the grassy plains with their livestock. The highest peak of the Loita hills is Osupuko peak (2,600m) which can be climbed after an exhilarating bush trek in the plains. A hike in the Loitas provides an opportunity for close interactions with the local Maasai people.
