Maasai homestay in 
Monduuli 

Stay with a native Maasai family in their boma in Monduuli, which is approximately an hour drive from Arusha. Here you can observe and participate in your Maasai family's life and you might see some wild game too as zebras and wildebeest. The Maasai homestay includes two nights in a Maasai boma and one night in Tanzanian bush where you will join the Maasai warriors' bush camp. 
 

About the Maasai homestay 

Besides your Maasai family whom you will meet in Monduuli, you will be escorted by a Maasai staff who will take care of your stay. The Maasai staff consists of a Maasai driver, a Maasai Chef and a Maasai guide whom all speak English. They will come to pick you up from your hotel or other location in Arusha. 

During your stay, you will visit and sleep in a Maasai boma where you stay with the Maasai family. In addition, one night is spent in the most beautiful African bush. 

A typical day with the Maasai

We don't have a daily itinerary for the guest because after all, everything happens by nature's speed as this is a real-life experience.  A typical day with the Maasai may look like this:

7 am Wake up & breakfast

9 am Herding cows and hiking in Savannah where you might see the wild game (you will always be escorted by Maasai carrying spears) 

2 pm lunch

4 pm Daily tasks in Maasai boma such as cutting the firewood, fetching water, food preparations, making jewelry, maintaining houses

6 pm Dinner together with the Maasai family

8 pm Storytelling, singing, observing the sky full of stars

Every guest is warmly welcome to participate in the daily tasks with the Maasai

Olpul- A traditional bush camp with the Maasai solders

During your stay you will be invited to attend olpul- meat camp where Maasai solders go to the bush to eat meat to get stronger soldiers. In this Olpul- bush camp Maasai soldiers eat only meat and drink blood and soup. For the guests, we have also vegetarian food options.

This is a very unique opportunity to see Maasai's cultural traditions and the amazing beauty of the real African nature as you will be taken to the deep bush. The night is spent in the bush in tents. There will be Maasai soldiers as watchmen 24/7.
