There is a visit to a traditional Massai boma where visitors learn about the culture of one of East Africa’s largest and most famous tribes.
Witness their ancient life style, learn about their fascinating culture and why they’ve resisted changing their traditional nomadic way of life in modern times.
One can visit the Maasai Cultural bomas in the Ngorongoro Conservations Area(NCA) to learn more about their unique culture, to take photographs, and to buy mementos. There is an entrance fee to be paid but it is well worth it. Please be sensitive to the fact that it is considered bad manners to take photographs of people along the roadside without consent.
Walking in and around the NCA encouraged, but should be done with guides. Short hikes can be organized with your lodge or the NCAA headquarters. Long walks can be adventurous and rewarding but need some planning.
Suitable walking routes include the area from Olmoti Crater to Embakai Highlands and down to the Great Rift Valley, the Northern Highlands Forest Reserve and the Eastern Plains around Nasera Rock, Gol Mountains and Olkarien Gorge
