Visit a Maasai Village in Tanzania

Diving with Whale Sharks at Mafia Island

Today we will visit an authentic Maasai village. On your visit, you will have an opportunity to learn about their ancient culture. They live in small huts made of a mixture of cow dung and soil. The huts are built in a circle and the animals sleep in the center to be safe from wild animals. You will learn to make fire in a traditional way and ignite dry elephant dung.
Every morning and evening, a group of men will make a fire and then distribute it to the entire village. They will show you how they get medicine from trees and shrubs by boiling the leaves, stems, and roots of some trees. The Maasai are known for their high jumping which is also a way of attracting a bride. The higher the jumps, the more of an eligible bachelor a man is.
You will have a chance to sing and dance with them. You will also learn about their weapons such as spears and shields and their fighting skills. They do not hunt, but Maasai men are known to kill lions to protect their village and their cattle. You will be able to taste typical Maasai food which lets them survive in very harsh surroundings. You will see how the women are creating their traditional jewelry. Both men and women wear colorful handmade beaded ornaments on their ears and necks. Depending on our arrival time, it might get dark by the end of our visit. That will give you the opportunity to listen to the traditional Maasai chants and dancing, accompanied by a bonfire.

  • Making Fire
  • Houses
  • Traditions
  • Food
