In the summer of 2015, travel guidebook writer and photographer Stuart Butler took a five-week walk across Massai (Maasai) country in southern Kenya. His goal: explore new models of conservation, evolving attitudes towards wildlife, and gather the best stories about the changing life of the Massai.
In addition to conversations with animal researchers, former poachers, village healers, Massai warriors, and conservation leaders, this podcast gives you the feel of the walk, with richly textured recordings made on the ground, and Stuart's real-time thoughts as mishaps and classic African adventures unfold.
This is part one of a three or four part series and includes an interview in the Maasai Mara National Reserve with Moses Kinyaika, a former poacher turned conservationist.
