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.
Visit a Masai Family
Visit a family of our Mkuru community in their Boma (household) and get authentic insight to Maasai life off the touristic paths. Join in everyday tasks of the women, have a chat with the elder or play with the kids. We rotate the families our guests visit
Learn to play some traditional Maasai group games and test your reflexes! A group of young Maasai from Mkuru community will come to the camp and teach you their favourite leisure time games. Most fun if you come with a group as well
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.
Located near our camp, the villages of Oldonyosambu and Engarenanyuki hold their weekly Maasai markets, called Mnada, every Friday and Saturday. Get the chance to visit it with a local guide, there you will find an area dedicated to food, one dedicated to clothes and the area where cows and goats are bought and sold. Enjoy a typical Tanzania street food lunch in one of the many stands that you can find there
Cooking Local Dishes
The cuisine is a refreshingly different approach to explore a country - even better to learn how to prepare local dishes and surprise your loved ones at home with a new recipe! You can decide whether you would like to just do cooking with our chef (and of course later enjoy the meal)

Beading with Maasai Mamas
You probably know the vibrant Maasai jewellery - but do you also know how to make them? At our camp you have the chance to learn how to craft beautiful beaded earrings or bracelets and thus gain an insight of how much skill and time goes into each item the mamas make. Take the opportunity to also chat with them about this and that and their beading history
Enjoy your lunch and remember all your adventures.
After checking out, you will be taken either to the airport for your onward flight or to a pre-arranged meeting point for your onward journey.
