“An educational and cultural hike with a Maasai guide”
Get a better understanding of the famed Maasai culture by spending half a day with a Maasai named Lamnyaki near the village of Msitu wa Tembo. The tour begins at Lamnyaki’s house, where you be welcomed by his family and presented with a warm cup of tea made with goat’s milk. Accompanied by one of our guides/translators, you will start on your hike around the base of the Blue Mountains.
On this hike you will pass many different plants that the Maasai use for medicinal purposes and Lamnyaki will explain and demonstrate how they work. You will also have the opportunity to ask him any questions about the Maasai culture. Moreover, you will see numerous Baobab trees and may even pass by herds of goats and cattle. Another highlight of this tour is the unforgettable and majestic view you will get of Mt. Kilimanjaro, as long as it is a clear day.
