1 Day Arusha Cultural Experience Tour Monduli Juu Tanzania: This is a day excursion from Arusha to get an insight of the Masai culture at Monduli Juu located within the Arusha Region of Tanzania.
Monduli Juu is a cluster of four small villages namely; Emairete, Enguiki, Eluwai and Mfereji. Monduli Juu is situated 50 km’s northwest of Arusha (1 ½ hours driving) on the road to Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park.
Monduli is the capital of Monduli district and a town which you’ll have to pass through when going to Monduli Juu.
Our cultural day tour begins with hike to a small hill to see the panoramic view of the Great Rift Valley and savannah sprawling land on the foot of the rift Valley.
Just in the backdrop, you will see Mount Oldonyo Lengai, the Maasai holy mountain, Mount Kitumbeine and Lake Natron.
Right opposite the panoramic view is the evergreen Komolonick rainforest perched on a small mountain, in which visitors are taken to see traditional plants used by the local Masai to treat different ailments.
The next stop is the famous dam in the area (Emairete dam) which hosts abundant bird life then a visit to one of the Masai Boma (Homestead) with typical round earthen houses. A local healer will give you more information about natural medicine.
If you are lucky enough to visit on a market day (every Saturdays) you get to tour the Emairete village market where they sell live animals (mostly goats and sheep), a host of household items, including dry foods. Hundreds of Maasai mostly men swarm the grounds.
Other than that you visit a Maasai Church, Primary School and Kindergarten Project, up to Naramatu (Maasai Jewels).
For lunch you could try a home cooked lunch or the local skewers of goat meat, the well-known “Nyama Choma”.
After lunch, the trip leads near the forest to Enguiki Primary School and Dispensary from where you’ll be picked up at a Maasai boma. Along the way, the guide will explain to you the secret differences between Maasai and Wa-arusha.
