Maasai Boma Cultural Visit:
Arranged by a highly respected Maasai Chief, guests will visit and engage with one of the Maasai bomas (villages). Visitors will experience first-hand ceremonial dances and rituals. Hands-on experiences include dancing and Maasai jumping, carrying wood and water balanced on your head, and how traditional mud huts are built. In addition, guests will be welcomed inside one of the homes and a community leader will discuss how the Maasai culture continues today. Topics may include the continued tradition of male circumcision, marriage practices, religion and diet. We guarantee the question-answer period will be quite interesting and informative!
Since 2013, Chief Lobulu has represented the three largest bomas in the Tarangire region. He was instrumental in starting one of the first primary schools for Maasai children. Committed to maintaining the Maasai way of life, Chief Lobulu also understands the importance of his tribes’ connection with the modern world. Thus, as a leader and spokesman he works diligently to educate all Maasai children and teaches travelers the history and culture of the Tanzanian Maasai.
