Many of them still live a very traditional lifestyle and are easy to spot by their distinctive clothing. On this tour, you can expect to learn about the Maasai religious beliefs, culture and lifestyle. You will have the opportunity to enter into one of their traditional dwellings and hear them sing and dance (and join in if you wish) and see their famous jumping abilities. This trip also offers the opportunity to buy Maasai crafts direct from the tribe.
This trip can be easily added into any safari itinerary near to the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
They also forage for roots and berries and are experts at herbal medicine. They create fire by rubbing sticks together in an amazingly short time. Their clothing is also based on availability, wearing animal skins or donated clothing.

They reside near the shores of Lake Eyasi, as do the Nilotic-speaking Datoga tribe. A tour will include the opportunity to go along on a hunt and experience their singing and dancing. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about a vanishing lifestyle. This tour can be added to any safari that is near Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
