A visit to one of the many Maasai bomas that dot Ngorongoro is the easiest and cheapest way to interact with the famous Maasai people.
While the Maasai people are not allowed to live within national parks, Ngorongoro Conservation Area allows these semi-nomadic people to continue living their lives as they always have.
Visits to authentic Maasai villages are not easy to arrange, but these tourist-focused bomas offer visitors a chance to explore a village, see traditional dance, and even pick up a few souvenirs.
The perfect stop on your way to or from the Serengeti, a Maasai boma visit is especially fun for kids who might be feeling cooped up on the long drive!
Note: As this is a tourist-focused activity, it is not recommended for those craving an authentic cultural experience.
