While it is true that many authentic Masai villages do not welcome tourists, it is possible for visitors to Tanzania to interact with these fascinating people in a number of ways.
Those venturing to or from the Serengeti have the opportunity to visit a Masai village between Ngorongoro and the Serengeti National Park. Your visit includes a demonstration of traditional Masai dance, the opportunity to see the day-to-day workings of a Masai village, and the opportunity to purchase locally made jewelry.
Maasai boma consists of several houses made of natural materials that are built in a circle to fence in the cattle. Visiting a boma will give you the chance to see for yourself how the Maasai live. Additionally, you can talk to your hosts who will give you an in-depth understanding of their traditions and customs.
