We visited Olpopongi in August 2019 and it was an unforgetable experience. We´ve visited many community based project in other countries and this project is one of the best planned and managed. Of course it is not 100% „authentic“ village as the people who were there don´t live there permanently (they come there from surrounding villages), but one can learn a lot about the culture, history, traditions, medicine herbs and their way of living. We were very lucky as we were only group there (11 people), so we´ve got full attention. We highly recommend do the tour and to stay overnight in traditional Massai houses, enjoying delicious dinner and have a nice time around the fire. All place was very well mainained, clean and food was delicious. Only one thing would need some adjustment and that´s accessoires. The prices were a bit higher and quality lower compare to other shops in Tanzania. Some accessoires were already damaged or quiet old. So improvement of quality is recommended. Last but not the least we really appreciate that people from Olpopongi were not chasing us for tips, as it happens in many places very often. They just mentioned once at the begining that there is a tip box, so if we feel like to leave some we are welcome. So no pressure. Thank you Masaii community for taking care and sharing your culture with us. It was an amazing experience and we will never forget singing and laughing time around the fire. We would deffinetly do it again. Worth to visit and it was one of the best experiences in community based tourism in Tanzania.

We were greeted with a nice welcoming song and dance and made to feel very welcome. This strikes me as a village set up in the Maasai style but more for accommodating tourists for an overnight stay. With that said it was a very informative visit with a nice little walk nearby. They were friendly and informative with a tea provided at Gramma's hut. and the trip was well worth the drive and the money. All in all a very nice day out.

This is a cultural education center designed for tourists. It was clean, the food very good and Maasai very open and friendly. One of our participants would not stay in the hut - so this is a caution to others. You could likely get the same information from visiting other Maasai botas on the way to Serengeti - and much cheaper.

The village gave us an interesting insight into the Maasai culture and we learned how they use the local plants to help with everything from tooth brushing to disease. The museum is small but very interesting. We visited the houses and had lunch there.
