The great explorer Joseph Thomson walked through MaasaiLand in the 19th Century, making him the first white man to enter this land. He started out by traversing through 6 Maasai clusters, from Kisosnko Maasai cluster in Loitokitok into Matapato, Dalalekutuk, Ildamat, Iloodokilani and Keekonyokie. These journeys are captured in his seminal book Through Masai Land (1885).
Part of this exploration was through the present-day Kajiado, and the Across Maasai Land Initiative (AMLI) group seeks to retrace the journey of Joseph Thomson in their land.
