Ways to Experience Maasai Culture in Arusha

By Viator, August 2018

No reviews, be the first!

An estimated 450,000 Maasai people live in the rural plains of Tanzania, where their nomadic life and long history as herders have made them one of the most famous tribes in Africa. Here are some of the best ways to experience this culture during your stay in Arusha.

  • Learn to identify native birds, animal tracks, and local plant life from a Maasai guide in Tarangire National Park.
  • Shop for traditional Maasai arts and crafts in the markets of Mto wa Mbu village.
  • Visit Maasai communities, also known as bomas, living alongside African wildlife within Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
  • Join in a traditional dance—typically a rite of passage for Maasai warriors—and observe a local show off their fire-making skills.
  • Explore the landscapes that have served as the homeland for the Maasai, including Lake Natron.
