Revealing How the Maasai Warriors Make Fire From Animal Dungs & Dry Sticks – (VIDEO)


The Maasais for a fact do not have access to living life in a sophisticated manner, but I can boldly brag as an African that, they are one intelligent and wonder kind of a Nilotic tribe dwelling northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania; their way of life is naturally overwhelming base on my one day experience & trip to the Amboseli whilst enjoying the magical escapade the republic of Kenya, positioned on the eastern part of this continent of Africa.

Maasais are very gratified with nature and chance on everything around them. Their houses are constructed with cow manure and mud in the Wild. And how they make fire for cooking and to keep them warm when it’s cold is mind-blowing.

In my previous article revealing how I rode myself to hell in Naivasha, Kenya (CLICK HERE TO READ IF YOU MISSED), I promised to tell the story of my encounter with the Maasai ethnic in Amboseli, the royal court of Kilimanjaro, also known as the Home of Elephant for its large population of elephants within the national park, all made possible by the Kenya Tourism Board.

With that being said, this article in particular justifies the promise made and shines the spotlight on a natural demonstration exhibited by the Maasais of Amboseli upon my visit to their inhabitance within the Amboseli National Park in Southern Kenya. The display has to do with how they create fire from animal dungs (Elephants, Zebra & Donkeys mostly) and dry sticks from the acacia trees among others. This process the Maasais use in making the fire is surprisingly so fast.

According to the spokesperson of the Amboseli Maasai tribe, the Nilotic Kenya ethnic group uses the fire they make from the mentioned natural substances and materials for protection, cooking and warming themselves when it gets cold.

I filmed the entire demonstration on how the Maasai warriors make fire for their own use with animal dungs and dry sticks in this video below.
