    Get to know the Masai culture by doing a real immersion with them in Tanzania. Do it through sustainable and responsible tourism. This is one of Trip To Help’s most immersive experiences: experiential tourism and immersion with the Tanzanian Maasai community.

    • We will enter into the authentic life of the Maasai, making a real and respectful immersion.
    • We will live your day to day, in full connection with nature. We will visit their houses, called bomas, build our own shoes by recycling old tires, learn how to make fire in a natural way, cook our own food and sleep bivouacking under a unique blanket of stars.
    • In addition, we will have time to meet and visit the projects of the NGO that inspired Trip to Help. During our stay at the Masai Lodge, we will meet Cornelia, the daughter of the founder of the NGO Africa Amini Alama, doctor of the NGO’s health center, and coordinator of the whole project. We will be able to talk to her and she will explain the day-to-day life of this organization.

     

    You will carry this Maasai immersion with you forever. In addition to getting to know the Maasai culture first hand and the ongoing projects of this NGO, you will contribute from the first day to the local community’s ability to have a dignified life, with education and health care projects. Experiential, responsible and supportive tourism with the Maasai community in Tanzania.

    And remember: if you have any questions about the Maasai dive in Tanzania, we are here to answer them.

    Day 1

    Pick up from Kilimanjaro Airport and transfer to Original Maasai Lodge

    On our first day we will be picked up from Kilimanjaro Airport and driven to a unique lodge run by Maasai where we will have our first contact with them. In the evening we will have a campfire and take the opportunity to be together and talk to them. Night: Masai Lodge

      Day 2

      The adventure begins

      In the morning, we will have breakfast and go for a short walk around the Masai Lodge with our guide. During this time we will be able to learn about the medicinal plants in the surrounding African steppe. After lunch, we will change into Masai clothes and in the afternoon we will start our immersive journey with them. We will be given food and water for 3 days, a sleeping bag and an insulator and we will ride on a donkey, which will help us to transport everything to get into the nature.

        Day 3

        In the heart of nature

        After breakfast we will learn first-hand what it means to live self-sufficiently. We will learn how to make slippers from an old tyre. We will collect herbs and roots and cook an authentic Maasai soup with them. In the evening, we will follow their way of life. We will dine on what we have hunted around the fire with the community. The more adventurous can learn how to slaughter a goat themselves, just like a Maasai. That night we will sleep in an authentic Masai house: a Masai Boma.

          Day 4

          Return to Original Masai Lodge

          After 3 days in the middle of nature and without any western luxury, it is time to return to the Masai Lodge where we can relax and enjoy the swimming pool, sauna and the wonderful views. In the afternoon we will have the privilege to meet the founder of the NGO Africa Amini Alama or her daughter Cornelia, doctor and coordinator of the project. They will explain to us how they have built everything from scratch, what obstacles they have encountered and what the reality of the place is, and they will answer all our questions! We will sleep in the Original Masai Lodge.
