At Maasai Lodge, we have Activities to keep you engaged, familiar, and always happy. Below is a list of things you may want to try and experience the hidden glamour. We can tailor made any Activity as per your wish and customize it for the fullest enjoyment.
Nature Walks with the Maasai
Nature Walk with the Maasai and visiting the nearby never seen before “Rock “Trees”. A walking adventure in the bush provides a new perspective on the African landscape and its many residents. These walks are taking place in the Maasai Steppes of the Slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Tread across the vast plains of the Maasai steppes, accompanied by authentic Maasai warriors, with tribal knowledge that spans over centuries. Learn the traditional Maasai way of life and discover how they live in harmony alongside Africa’s mighty wildlife.
Safari and Game Drives
The Maasai lodge is set in bush savannah, home to antelope species like impala, kudu, eland, zebras, and waterbucks, as well as giraffe, zebra, warthog, wildebeest, ostrich, and porcupine. The bird life is also varied and you may see secretary birds, martial eagles, tawny eagles, lappet-faced vultures, etc. Hyena and jackal are around but are rarely seen. There are no elephants or lions on the reserve.
Osiligilai’s staff are experienced in guiding bush walks and game drives as well as riding, so this is also a destination where we can have game drives.

Visit Maasai Projects
Visit Projects – MAA Eagles Foundation for Women and Children (Education & empowerment of Women)
To us, it is very important to be to support the Maasai community. After breakfast, we will take you to visit the social project “MAA EAGLES FOUNDATION”.
This is a 1 – 1,5 hour drive from the lodge. On your way to Tinga Tinga, you will most likely be enjoying amazing various wildlife.
MDWC is running a pre-school and supporting the Maasai to establish Namayani English Medium School. We truly believe that education will give the Maasai children hope for a better future. During the visit, you will be able to take part in school activities and play with the children. The children really love to get visitors, and their beautiful smiles and trusting behavior will make this a memorable day.
You will also visit the local women’s group, and see how they make traditional Maasai jewelry like necklaces and earrings, etc. They will be happy to show you how to make their unique beads work.
This will be a full-day activity, and you will be served lunch in Tinga Tinga. You will be back to the lodge before
