Longido Maasai Village
Day 1: Longido Bird Watching & Maasai Bomas Visitation
Drive to Longido Village meet the Maasai guide after registration start with bird watching safari on the Maasai plains from the boma of Oi Tepesi. The Maasai guides will help you to spot many colourful birds and also show you trees and plants that are used for making food/liquor and medicines. At Oi Tepesi, which is the Maasai word for Acacia tree, the guides will invite you into a Maasai boma and show and explain vividly their traditional way of life. Late afternoon return to the campsite or Longido guest house (it is possible to camp inside the Maasai Bomas on request)
On Wednesday you can extend your stay with a visit to the bustling Colorful cattle market.
Day 2: Hiking Longido Mountain & Photographic Walking
Guided by Maasai warriors, leave the campsite early in the morning and follow narrow footpaths through a dense natural forest. After three hours you will be at the marvelous DAWA YA SUPU (medicine soup) view point. From here you will follow trails created by buffaloes to reach the top in another two hours climb. With loud cries he Maasai warns the buffaloes that people are coming to avoid dangerous encounters.
The views from the top are simply unbelievable. On clear days you can see for more than 200km and view of all mountains of Northern Tanzania (Mount Meru, Lengai and Kilimanjaro). Descend to campsite, have  rest and then walk for another hour and half to reach the road where a car is waiting for you for the trip back to Arusha
