The Maasai Way Of Life

In the heart of Tanzania's savannah lies a world unlike any other. Simba Safaris extends an invitation to travellers to the daily rhythms of the Maasai people – a community fundamentally associated with the land they inhabit. Here, life unfolds in agreement with nature, and the Maasai way of life is a variety of pastoral traditions, striking attire, and age-old customs.

Pastoral Pioneers

The Maasai people are renowned as pastoralists, with cattle playing a decisive role in their lives. Each day, the Maasai tend to their herds, ensuring their well-being and sustenance. It's a depiction of coexistence with nature, where the land provides for the people, and the people, in turn, care for the land.

Age-Old Traditions

From vibrant ceremonies to time-honoured rituals, the Maasai way of life is deeply rooted in tradition. Witness their dances, hear their songs, and immerse yourself in their customs. Every element of daily life carries the weight of history, inviting you to connect with a culture that rises above the confines of time.

Beaded Elegance

The Maasai are celebrated for their characteristic and colourful attire. Adorned in intricately beaded jewellery and garments, the clothing reflects their rich culture and heritage. Each bead and colour holds significance, relating stories of their people and their place in the world.

We share the Heart of Tanzania with every Guest and bring its warmth to you – the adventurer!
