If you have been travelling in Africa before coming to Tanzania, you’ll meet a somehow different culture and lifestyle here. You will meet a country without tribalism and rivalry like in the neighbouring countries. 
Tanzania is full of history and culture; you might choose to visit the Stone Age findings in Isimila, Iringa, or the Kolo paintings, ancient rock paintings south of Tarangire National Park.
The people you meet, from one of the 120 tribes in the country, or from the small but economical significant numbers of Asians and Arabs, will all do they best to teach you the importance of greetings and respect, which for all Tanzanians are highly occupied with for all everyday life.
After only few days of your visit here or even hours, you’ll probably have some new “brothers” or “sisters” here – Tanzanians have a very extended, including and sharing family perspectives. You’ll find that although many are poor, few are starving, and the little they have, they will gladly share with you.
Handshakes are a part of greeting, and you’ll get a strange feeling in the beginning when your new brother keeps holding your hand throughout a good portion of your conversation.

The Maasai people
On your journey in Tanzania, you will most likely meet the tall, slender built and colourful dressed people of the Maasai tribe. This nomadic people still very much live by their old traditions, herding cattle and goats, and living on a diet based on milk, blood and meat from their herds.
In the north of Tanzania there are many established tourist culture villages, but many find them too touristic. We will always do our best to include the more genuine and authentic experience when we introduce you and your fellow travellers to these pastoralist and proud warriors, for many one of the most known ethnic groups in Africa.

Upon your wishes and desires, it is possible to set up your travel with us to include visits, even overnight, at a real Maasai “Boma” – their name for the family’s set of cow dung huts, to really get under the skin of their culture and lifestyle.

Another of our most popular short tours is the Maasai tribe safari, which is based around a visit to a traditional Maasai Boma (dwelling). This tour is led by a local guide and you will be told about tribal customs and the methods in which they build their dwellings. The village we visit still preserves the traditional Maasai way of life and you will be enthralled by the truly wonderful and inspiring tales that these people will tell you about their history and way of life. You will also get a chance to learn how the Maasai women make their beautifully coloured and intricate jewellery. The money raised from the sale of their traditional jewellery goes directly back into the local community. In addition, when you join our Maasai Mara safaris you will be able to watch a traditional welcome dance – something truly special that is sure to become a lifelong memory.
Longer tours and walks can also be organised when you book a Maasai safari tour. These walks take place in the Ngorongoro Highlands. The Maasai’s knowledge of nature and their unique link to this beautiful land will captivate you. Being up close and personal with nature while walking with a Maasai guide along the deeply spiritual trails their predecessors have trodden for hundreds and hundreds of years is an experience that will surely become the highlight of your visit to this magnificent country.
