The manyatta is the traditional dwelling of the tribal peoples of Kenya (Masai, Samburu, Kikuyu.) The manyatta is similar to the western “corral” or “kraal” in Afrikaans. It consists of several huts surrounded by thorn bush branches which act as a fence – keeping their livestock in and predatory animals out.

The huts are generally made by the women of the tribe and consist of a frame of tree branches pasted with animal dung (cow, elephant, whatever is available) which then dries hard in the sun. The huts are partitioned into small rooms, usually 2-4 sleeping areas around a larger central living/cooking room.
