Rooting For Our Future

Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature by joining our Rooting For Our Future tree planting project. Together, we can combat deforestation and restore vital habitats in Maasai Mara. By planting trees, we enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change, and create sustainable livelihoods for local communities.

Visit our gift shop and purchase seedballs. These seeds of indigenous trees can be dispersed in the Maasai Mara by using a slingshot made from upcycled plastic.

With the proceeds from your seedballs purchases, mature trees are purchased and planted

How to support

  • Get Seedballs at Emboo River: Purchase seedballs in the Emboo River gift shop to plant your own trees.

  • From seeds to forests: Once you are back at home, school or work, continue planting trees and encourage others to join you.

Schoolbook Donations

Education is the key to unlocking a brighter future. Join us in supporting the local primary and secondary school in Talek town by donating schoolbooks. By providing educational resources, we empower young minds and foster a love for learning.


How to support

  • Donate schoolbooks: Select reading books, study books, school kits (including writing materials and mathematical tools) from the Emboo River gift shop. You can donate these items yourself to our neighbouring community when you visit the Maasai Village; or you can ask the Emboo River team to donate on your behalf.
