Maasai Boma Visit

A visit to one of the many Maasai bomas that dot Ngorongoro is the easiest and cheapest way to interact with the famous Maasai people. While the Maasai people are not allowed to live within national parks, Ngorongoro Conservation Area allows these semi-nomadic people to continue living their lives as they always have.
Visits to authentic Maasai villages are not easy to arrange, but these tourist-focused bomas offer visitors a chance to explore a village, see traditional dance, and even pick up a few souvenirs.

The perfect stop on your way to or from the Serengeti, a Maasai boma visit is especially fun for kids who might be feeling cooped up on the long drive!

Lake Eyasi Hadzabe Experience

One of our most popular cultural experiences is the Lake Eyasi Hadzabe experience. These fascinating hunter-gatherers still live their lives much as they always have, defying Tanzania’s rapid modernization in a way that is utterly fascinating to behold.
The opportunity to join the men of the Hadzabe tribe for a morning hunt before touring their village with the aid of a Datoga guide is a truly unique cultural experience, and one of our most popular add-ons.

Marangu Village Tour

The Chaga tribe may not be one of Tanzania’s best-known, but their culture is nonetheless interesting to uncover. Their history of building intricate tunnel systems in which to shelter during Maasai raids is fascinating, and a chance to tour these pitch-black tunnels would be worth the trip to Moshi on its own.
Thankfully for you, our one-day Marangu tour features more than just these tunnels – with a picturesque waterfall, organic coffee plantation tour, local lunch, and banana beer sampling also included in your day-trip.

Ngorongoro Highlands Trekking

For the more adventurous, Shadows of Africa offers a seven-day Ngorongoro Highlands trek that truly immerses you in the local culture. Accompanied by a Maasai guide and overnighting in villages from the tourist trail, this intense seven-day hike gets you well and truly off-the-beaten-path.
Your trip also includes a chance to enjoy an Ngorongoro Crater game drive!
