We have various Maasai activities and entertainment like, nature walks where you will learn how the Maasai take use of the plants and herbs for both food and medicine. During the nature walk you will see the amazing rock climbing tree, historical maasai cave and maybe even some wild animals depending on seasonal variations. We also have donkey ride with the Maasai for children. In the afternoon you can enjoy an unforgettable sundown over Mt.

Back home in Germany I often think of the wonderful days I`ve spent at the Osiligilai Lodge. I was really lucky that Halpha, my best tourguide ever, took me to this lovely hideaway. Everything was perfect, we loved the food, it was great! All in all it was such an amazing stay. The whole stuff was so friendly, they warmely welcomed us and Gabriel who guided us through the beautiful landscape, taught us a lot of the nature and the culture. For any question and for any need he was always there for us and on leaving the lodge he helped us with the flat tyre. The meeting with the Maasai people, their hospitality and the presentation of their dances are un unforgettable experience, also sitting around the campfire and having barbecue with the Maasai people was a breathtaking moment! I surely recommend this lovely place to all travellers who are planning to come to Tanzania, they may also have this unique lifetime experience at the Osiligilai Lodge. Thank you so much. I hope to come back soon, Beate

Wow, what a magical place! The landscape is just breathtaking but what makes the experiences extra special is the super friendly and attentive staff. They really go out of their way. They offer so many activities to learn about the real Maasai Culture like nature walks, Speer throwing competitions and visiting a Boma. And of course a lot of dancing and singing. I only stayed there for one night but wished I could have stayed longer. I definitely would like to go back at some point. It is quite a bit out-of-town but for an extra charge they offer pick and drop off, so not a problem. If the weather is in your favour, there are spectacular views of Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru of course. Asante sana and ashenale!

I went to Osiligilai with my three friends this past weekend and we had an amazing experience. I have always wanted to learn more about Masaai culture, but was never sure the best way to do it because many of the Masaai experiences offered in Tanzania seem intrusive and unethical. Osiligilai is offering the perfect way to learn more about Masaai culture without feeling this way. There are performances from Masaai groups, all staff are Masaai, they offer a story telling experience and room for Q&A with a famous Masaai story teller and a nature walk to learn more about plants used in traditional medicine. I felt I learned a-lot from this experience as well as had fun! I would suggest adding this lodge to anyone traveling to Tanzania. It's unique and shouldn't be missed! The food was also very good and there were plenty of options. There is a beautiful pool situated with a view of Mt Kilimanjaro and VERY comfy beds. The location does not get better than this. It has perfect views of both Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru. I have never seen a sunset so beautiful! Thank you to all the staff for an amazing experience. I hope to come back again soon!

From the beautiful scenery, the dancing and singing, barbecues, yummy food, and attentive staff, we had the BEST time at osiligilai! They welcomed us like family. The rooms were very comfortable and clean & hot shower was great! We even got to enjoy the pool before leaving. It was definitely a weekend we will never forget and a special experience everyone should try. We will be back!
