The Original Maasai Lodge is perfectly camouflaged in the midst of unspoiled nature. The Original Maasai Lodge Tanzania – Africa Amini Life is located at the foot of Kilimanjaro and is surrounded by a 200-hectare nature reserve. The lodge offers an outdoor pool and a bio-sauna. The sustainable bungalows have solar-powered light and hot water. Each is equipped with a side table, wardrobe and Maasai-style seating. The modern bathroom includes a rain shower and flushing toilet.
Accommodation and Meals
Breakfast is served every morning and for lunch and dinner, the lodge prepares home cooked international and traditional Swahili cuisine as well as Maasai specialities. Fresh and organic ingredients are grown in the kitchen’s garden. Free Activities offered to guests include the introduction to the philosophy and practice of permaculture, spear throwing competitions with the Maasai, herb walks focusing on medicinal plants native to the area and donkey rides with the Maasai for children.
Traditional spear throwing competitions are deep-rooted in the Maasai culture. They were not only important for Maasai warriors in order to compete with each other, but also served as training for hunting lions. Nowadays, the lions are protected and the Maasai don’t hunt them anymore. Spear throwing competitions are now merely an athletic event. Try your luck and compete with the best of the best!
NATURE WALK WITH THE MAASAI
Accompanied by a Maasai shaman you will have the chance to discover the surrounding areas. Meet the locals of Ngabobo who will share their extensive knowledge of herbs and medicinal plants and introduce you to the Maasai’s culture, which has stayed unchanged for centuries. In close proximity to the lodge you will have the chance to pick these medicinal plants yourself and might even prepare your own tea with them. It will be a very special teatime, both for you and the Maasai.
