The cultural safari is aimed at anyone interested in living a truly unique experience with the fascinating Maasai people, away from the hordes of tourists doing conventional safaris. Mkuru has a local group of camel owners and guides who have learned English to share their culture with visitors. Discovering the breathtaking beauty of Tanzanian bush wilderness on camelback is a thrilling and eco-friendly way of travelling. Camel safaris range from 1 to 6 days and visitors are accompanied by guides and a personal cook, and have tents set up for them to sleep in the wild. Others can take part in various Maasai cultural activities and sleep at base camp, which runs on solar energy. All meals are provided by trained chefs, and water is heated on a fire for hot showers.
