Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village

For your authentic Maasai Village adventure!

Welcome to “Olpopongi” Maasai Cultural Village and Museum — authentic Maasai Boma with Maasai-Museum and overnight facilities in Tanzania. “Olpopongi” provides a unique Maasai and wildlife experience in the West Kilimanjaro Maasailand — just 74 km from Moshi and 85 km from Arusha.

Our aim is for you to share the authentic Maasai life and 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, behaviours and environment. Our eco-tourism tours provide the maximum respect to the Maasai tribe and a maximum education and enjoyment to our valued clients.

Olpopongi Maasai Village was planned and built by a multi-cultural construction team, dominated by more than 50 Maasai women and 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.
