The Osiligilai Maasai Lodge is a spectacular scenic eco-lodge. Our houses are build as traditional Maasaihouses, with private bathrooms and comfortable beds. Situated in the midst of Mount Kilimanjaro & Mount Meru our guests can enjoy the serene and vastness of the Maasai steppe. 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. Kilimanjaro while the Maasai dance their sundown dance, and after sundown we gather around the fireplace for Maasai BBQ and storytelling. Our friendly Maasai staff will tell you all about the Maasaiculture and their way of living.

During our Safari we stayed for two days at the Osiligilai Masaai Lodge. We were warmly welcomed by these beautiful people, dancing and singing. We learned a lot about the Masaai culture. Everybody was very very nice. The view of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru was amazing. They also support the locals by investing in education. It felt like a really authentic experience.

We spent the weekend at Osiligilai at a yoga retreat. The space was beautiful and all of our needs were accommodated. The food was fresh and healthy, the views were amazing. We ended our morning nature walk with a breakfast in the bush. It was everything to us! Thank you Osiligilai

It was by far the best welcome we have ever received to any hotel. It was more than a hotel in fact, it was an immersion into Maasai culture. We sang, we danced, we watched the sunset over Mt Meru and the sunrise over Kilimanjaro. We BBQ’d goat and shared stories around the fire. It was perfect. Although the rooms are in traditional Maasai mud/dung huts, you aren’t really compromising on comfort. Large comfortable double beds, a shower with hot water and a flushing toilet. What more do you need?

To call the Osiligilai lodge a hotel would not do this place any justice. This is much more a unique experience and especially with children an absolute MUST DO. What makes this place so special is mostly that it is held by Maasais and that all people working there are Maasais too. The entire village is unique. It is located on Maasai land, where you find no hotel or village close by. It is set in absolut harmony with the surrounding nature with a beautiful view on Kilimanjaro (if not in clouds) and Mt Mebu. The rooms are in original style but wirh a nice bathroom and very comfortable beds. They arw beautiful decorated with little dream catchers everywhere. Make sure to really reserve your time with the Maasais. You will get allocated your own guide who will take you to nature walks, boma visit, spear throwing, etc. We also were invited to a great original BBQ where a Massai was telling us in a charming and very entertaining way about history and life of the Maasai tribe. Some of this might sound touristic and I was trully sceptical before arrival. It didn't however feel like this at all, since all the acivities are held in such privacy and the lodge is remoted and the land vast. You really get the experience of peace, privacy and freedom. Thanks a lot to Willam and his incredible team who never missed a chance to make us feel welcome. The stay at Osiliglai lodge was one of the highlights of our Tansania tour and a wonderful possibility to learn more sbout the Maasai culture.

I stayed in this lodge for two nights with my two children. My children and I found this place amazing to learn about Masai culture . The hospitality is excellent and our guide there Simon has gone above and beyond to please us. The Maisai people there have treated us like family and my kids still talk about how kind they were. We were so lucky to attend a masai celebration and to visit a masai buma. My kids also did some donkey ride which they enjoyed very much. They were also so kind to organise the celebration of my son’s birthday ! The Masai stories and the fire in the evening were also very entertaining. I encouraged everyone to visit this place you will not regret it. Also, it contributes to some charitable projects for Masai people.

My family and I have been to Africa 3 times now and this specific experience will stand out amongst them all. The Maasai people in Tanzania were truly so special and at Osiligilai, they will forever be in our hearts! We had the most amazing dishes prepared for us, took a spectacular walk on the grounds, saw the most beautiful sunset with giraffe and zebras in the distant, had a spear throwing competition, danced and sang together, got woken up with coffee and tea in the most amazing huts that overlooked the plains. When it came to accommodations, it was such a beautiful balance between comfort and true uniqueness! We were so happy with our amazing little huts. The staff! Oh my gosh the staff was so amazing. From Gabi and Gideon, to the beautiful ladies at the bar, to Simon, DJ and Polo….they will for we hold a place in our hearts. They also celebrated my moms 68th birthday in the most special way and we are all 12 forever changed because of it! Thank you all for making me a better person and showing me the Maasai Way! Love you all!
