The Masai community is so significant to tourism industry when it comes to their culture. Starting from their dress code, the color red is so significant in that they scare away wild animals as they co-exist with them. They believe that God, Enkai, gave them cattle, therefore they believe that all the cattle belongs to them. That’s the reason why they have been known due to their cattle rustling. Although the Maasai are known for their nomadic life and cattle keeping, there is a group of agricultural Masai, known as IL Loikop, who look down upon by the cattle keeping group, the Wakwavi, since they believe they are the true Maasais created to keep cattle. A Maasai Homestead (enkang popularly known as the Manyattas) is made from cow dung and wooden sticks from the leleshwa plant. Women are the ones responsible for putting up these magnificent homes. However, a homestead contains several Maasai houses which are surrounded by a fence made also by branches of the leleshwa plant where the herds of goats and cows are confined in during the night hours. There are other Manyattas made far away in the wilderness during their Morans as they prepare their headset, the motonyik, before they return home.
