Overview of the trip
Cultural Experiences With East Africa Travel Company
Maasai bomas provide a fantastic opportunity for encounters with the famous Maasai people of Ngorongoro. Maasai are not allowed to live in national parks, but the Ngorongoro Conservation Area allows this seminomadic tribe to continue living their traditional ways.
CULTURAL TOURS IN TANZANIA
VISIT MAASAI BOMA
- For those short on time or without the budget, visiting an authentic Maasai village can be arranged; the bomas, on the other hand, provide an opportunity to explore a village, see traditional dances, and purchase souvenirs made by local women, contributing to their livelihoods.
- Maasai bomas are the perfect place to stop on the way to or from The Serengeti, especially for kids who may want to stretch their legs after a long drive!
EXPERIENCE LAKE EYASI HADZABE
Visits to the Hadzabe and Datoga ethnic groups at Lake Eyasi are among our most popular cultural experiences. Hunter-gatherer tribes still live much of their lives as they always have, defying Tanzania’s rapid modernization in a way that is fascinating to observe.
Experience a truly unique cultural experience by joining the Hadzabe men for a morning hunt before touring their village with a Datoga guide.
Combining a day at Lake Eyasi with a night at a Maasai lodge will give you a full day of cultural exploration!
A TOUR OF THE VILLAGE OF MARANGU
Despite not being one of Tanzania’s best-known tribes, the Chagga, who reside in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, have an intriguing culture. The history of their intricate tunnel systems in which they hid during Maasai raids is fascinating, and a trip to see these pitch-black tunnels is definitely worth it.
We offer a one-day Marangu tour that includes more than just these tunnels, a visit to a waterfall, a tour of an organic coffee plantation, a local lunch, and a taste of the local banana beer.
