Mukuru Eco-Tented Camps, you don’t only stay in a camp. You stay within the Mkuru community, who our camp is strongly connected with - through our staff and camp manager, but also through a long historical bond, and common engagement and commitment to sustainable development. So when you come to our camp, you directly contribute to the Mkuru community’s wellbeing and are in return warmly welcomed to explore, discover and experience Mkuru, to connect with its people and to just feel at home.
Depending on your flight time, upon your arrival at Airport or Arusha town, meet and great with one of our representative then transfer to Mukuru Eco tented camps.
Natural Leather Tannery Tour and Shop
Mkuru community features many small social enterprises - the leather tannery just next to our camp is part of the Natural Maasai Leather group
Take a guided tour and learn how unripe Papaya is used in the process. Afterwards you can make a key holder as a souvenir and find beautiful gifts in their small shop
Ever wondered how to make a fire to cook your food in the wild after it had just rained? How to clean your teeth far from a shop to purchase a toothbrush? Or how to treat your headache in the bush? On a short walk around the camp you will try and learn all this and more from your Maasai guide.
Camp Fire and Story Telling
What is an evening around the campfire without a good story? In this case, it is the story of the Maasai in this area, their traditions and beliefs, their ways of conflict solving and use of traditional medicine. A Maasai elder will tell you about all this in Maasai language, translated to English by a staff member. Afterwards you have the chance to ask the story teller any questions that came up
Maasai Goat BBQ – For Extra Cost
Enjoy some traditionally roasted goat meat around the campfire and learn which part is eaten (or not eaten!) by who in Maasai society. You can combine the BBQ very well with a Maasai Story Telling.
Get up early in the morning to watch the sun rise behind majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, only 15 minutes walking distance from the camp. Look to the side and see the Mkuru landscape awakening.
The Client May Opt to do One of the Below Optional Activities
I. Wildlife Spotting
Take an morning bush walk with a guide to spot for Zebras, Elands and sometimes even Giraffes! Due to the nature of the animals and availability of water and grass, this is only seasonally possible. Please check with our camp manager in advance
II. “Tiny Wildlife” Bingo
Our Camp and its surroundings are home to many reptiles, birds and insects coexisting, sunbathing and building their artistic nests. Can you name them? Don’t worry, we add some fun with our „Tiny Wildlife“-Bingo!
III. Bird Watching
Can you count how many different species of birds there are in and around Mukuru Eco-Tented Camps? You can surely hear them before sunrise from your bed, but strolling around to see them is definitely worth it for all those beautiful colours
Enjoy your lunch and remember all your adventures.
