Longido Village - Culture Tour


Longido Maasai Village

The Longido Village is about 90 kilometers north of Arusha Town. It is one of the places to visit for cultural interaction with Wa-Maasai and other tribes like Wa-Arusha. Visitors have a chance to see cattle being auctioned in the market and how local people (Maasai and Wa-Arusha) conduct that business traditionally. the Maasai are benefiting from 'green' tourism by organizing tours of the mountains and plains near their community.
 Longido Village offers a guided tour to Maasai Boma and hiking to Kimokouwa, along the Maasai cattle trail, that winds the slopes  to the summit of Longido Mountain. There is a chance of viewing wildlife such as giraffe, elephant and buffalo. For full safari program click here
Longido is also place for birding, among the birds found here are hornbills, trogans, barbets, sunbirds, and turacos.
Longido Village is also famous for donkey/ camel-back safari, which can be arranged as an optional in your safari package; the tour can take half a day to a week, depending on your wishes.
