Baboon Cave Safari
Transfer from Kilimajaro Airport/ Arusha Airport to Mkuru Camp Diner and overnight at Mkuru
The baboon cave is set amongst beautiful surroundings, and every night it hosts hundreds of baboons. In the cave, it you will see an example of dams built in colonial days. The cave is a special place for the Maasai: every year groups of men and boys come to this area for months at a time, and live away from home, with cows and goats to feast on during their stay. They eat only meat and drink no water during their stay. Your guide will show you where they slaughter the cows and store the meat, and how they sleep in the camp.
- Departure mid morning, lunch near the cave
- Afternoon: visit the area and learn about traditions
- Return mid afternoon. If you wish to see the baboons as they return to the cave, you can stay until around 7 pm and walk back by moonlight to arrive at base camp around 8:30 pm for dinner. The baboons are not always punctual, but if you’re lucky you might hear and see hordes of them.
