Cultural Tours


Sinya Village Cultural Tour

This Sinya village is located in Western Kilimanjaro whereby there are suitable activities to do. Maasai “bomas” are sparsely scattered in Sinya, with a total population of no more than 2.000 people living in a huge area.

These maasai are still living the traditional way and are not used to the commercial relationship with tourists that is common in more visited areas. They are spectacularly dressed and follow all the traditional ceremonies. They are very friendly and we have been able to developed a privileged relationship with them. This is a Community Conservation Project benefiting the maasai of Sinya.

Activities may also include game drives, walking safaris escorted by Maasai warriors, interaction with the local maasai including participation in ceremonies if available.


Location: Western Kilimanjaro

Maasai Village Visit

Enrich your safari holiday with a visit to a Maasai village in the Ngorongoro highlands – perhaps including a leisurely walk to the village across the rolling hills of the plateau. Spend time with the villagers, find out about their way of life, and join in their exuberant singing and dancing.
On arrival at the village, you will be greeted in a more traditional manner with plenty of singing and dancing, whereby you can participate on the traditional dances! There is also an opportunity to learn about some of the customary practices such as fire-making and beadwork. You may also get the chance to meet and speak to villagers in their homes – questions are very welcome and your guide will happily interpret if needed.
You can also purchase handmade leather and beadwork from the villagers, although these are also available in the camp shop.
