Maasai Village Tours in Africa
maasai village visit in kenya
Maasai Cultural Visits offers you a memorable encounter with the local Maasai people in their homesteads known as the bomas. The Maasai People are a famous tribe that existed from ancient times and they reside in the southern part of Kenya and northern Tanzania.
Maasai people are a major tribe that dominates the Maasai Mara National Reserve and probably the reserve was named after some of their terms.
The Masai Mara is named after the term Dotted Plains, while the Serengeti National Park means endless plains. They are famous nomadic pastoralists who majorly depend on grazing cattle.
The Maasai people are known for residing in grass thatched houses termed “Manyatta” which are sort of huts with a single entrance and no exit designed out of reeds/ wood, cow dung, mud, and grass.
These Manyattas are seen scattered in clusters making it a homestead or village which is well called the Bomas of Maasai.
