The Maasai, with their colorful blankets, beaded jewelry and fierce warriors, are perhaps the most well-known of Tanzania’s many tribes. Join us for a walking safari in Maasai homelands west of Arusha to learn how these traditional pastoralists are adapting to a changing world. We’ll be greeted by your Maasai guide, who will introduce you to Maasai culture and lead you on walking safari through their community.
