Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village & Museum – Kilimanjaro Region
For your authentic Maasai Village adventure!
Welcome to “Olpopongi” Maasai Cultural Village & Museum – authentic Maasai Boma with Maasai-Museum & overnight facilities in Tanzania. “Olpopongi” provides a unique Maasai & Wildlife experience in the West-Kilimanjaro Maasailand; Just 74 km from Moshi and 85 km from Arusha.
Our aim is YOU to share the authentic Maasai life & culture in a 100% traditional built village (Boma) with a unique museum, rather than taking tourists to private Maasai-Villages and destroy the Maasai native homes, behaviors and environment. Our Eco-Tourism Tours do provide the maximum respect to the Maasai tribe and a maximum education & excite-ment to our valu-able clients.
“Olpopongi Maasai-Village” was planned and built by a multi-cultural construction team, dominated by more than 50 Maasai women & men from the nearby Tinga-Tinga Maasai-Village. All houses are built the traditional way with local and natural materials only – similar to those ones of the nearby Maasai people. Only some additions, such as exterior washrooms and the kitchen, are different from the Maasai culture, but built for your hygienic safety & full satisfaction.
