Maasai homestay in
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.

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.
