Maasailand is a multicultural village set amongst the pristine bushveld and rocky hills less than an hour’s drive north of Arusha Town. Live the experience of the vibrant and colorful traditions of the Maasai, Hadzabe, Chagga and Sandawe peoples on a four hour afternoon tour.
See traditional Maasai, Engaruka, Mkuru, Ol Donyo Lengai and Chagga villages. See the Maasai tribal dancers and enjoy a pan African feast with delicacies from north, east and southern Africa.
Situated at Maasailand are five traditional homesteads: the Maasai with their fighting sticks and cozy beehive huts; the Chagga with their perfectly thatched rondawels and distinctive white blankets; the rhythmic drums and whistles of the Pedi tribe; the conical straw hats and thick, colored blankets of the Sandawe; and the colorful homes of the Nyamwezi.
Families live their traditional peaceful lives and inhabit each homestead at Maasailand. Maasailand is a Bantu word that means, “Warrior”. It was made famous by the great leader and founder of the Southern Maasai Villages, Morani. During the terrible Majimaji Rebellion by Kinjeketile Ngwale, refugees from many nations joined him and were saved by him.
Maasai Cultural Village awaits those willing to participate in an adventure that reveals the mystical cultures and traditions of the people of Africa, steeped in tribal folklore and ancestral traditions. Their culture is the light of the Tanzanian nation: “Whoever walks here amongst our cultures at Maasailand can also see the light”.
