This 2-day tour to the Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village takes you to experience the Maasai life in West Kilimanjaro. Tanzania is a melting pot of about 125 ethnic groups that coexist harmoniously. The Maasai are the tribe you’re most likely to be familiar with. The Maasai have a long cultural history that includes exquisite beading and elaborate hairstyles that express the wearer’s status and stage of life.
This interesting two-day trip immerses you in real Maasai culture and traditions. In the 100 percent traditionally built Maasai Village, you’ll spend a day and an overnight with the Maasai people.
Maasai art and dancing, spiritual rituals, medicinal and herbal treatments, crafts, and, of course, their hearty and delicious cuisine can all be found here. You’ll be taken on a tour of the hamlet, including its teeny-tiny museum, as well as a herbal stroll in the wilderness with Maasai herbal specialists. Spend the evening around the campfire in intense cross-cultural discourse before retiring to a traditional Maasai hut for the night.
