For centuries the Maasai have practiced a traditional rite of passage to manhood, hunting and killing lions. But now there are too many people and too few lions. The Maasai Elders of the Amboseli/Chyulu/Tsavo area knew things needed to change and became determined to eliminate lion hunting from the Maasai Culture. As a result of their initiative the first Maasai Olympics was held in 2012 and has become part of the larger conservation strategy and initiative to help to shift the attitudes of the Maasai toward a commitment to wildlife and habitat conservation. Every two years Maasai men and women gather in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro for the Maasai Olympics; a unique combination of conservation and sport, the event features bouts of athletic endurance, skill, and strategy all with a clear goal in mind…the conservation of lions.
