TOUR ITINERARY

Day 1: Moshi to Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village

In the morning we drive to Olpopongi in West Kilimanjaro region. Olpopongi is 74 kilometers from Moshi. Our two hours drive will take us through the beautiful outback of West Kilimanjaro. Depending on the season you can see game like zebras and elephants. On clear days you will have amazing views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. We reach Olpopongi before lunch time, where we will be welcomed by the local Maasai with a traditional welcome song and dance. We take a walk around the village and you will check-in your hut for the night. The guides will then take you to the precious little museum, where you will learn about the history, social organization and tools of Maasai people. In-between our lesson a traditional Tanzanian lunch will be served to give you enough energy for an exciting afternoon. Later in the afternoon we visit a midwife and herbalist in one of the huts. You will learn about the everyday life in a Maasai village. After this very spiritual meeting we have a short break which you can use for some jeweler shopping or coffee and tea break. Another highlight will be a bush walk to discover endemic plants and their usage for the Maasai people. Our day will be rounded up with a fire making session, bbq and bonfire before you dream away in your 100 % authentic Maasai hut.
