Olonana has recently had an authentic Maasai refurbishment, with the help of the local Maasai ladies.

Monica, Mary, Nareau, Evelyn, Nashiti and Naserian showed our team the traditional method of 'mudding' the walls. This method of mixing cow dung, mud and sand has been used for centuries in the Maasai villages. Different coloured soils and sand are mixed with mud and cow dung in order to achieve the desired colour.
