Mkuru Camel Safari

Welcome to the camel camp at Mkuru, where you can make camel safaris to the plains between  Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and Lake Natron, and enjoy the friendly behaviour of the "ship of the desert".  Mkuru is situated on the North side of Mount Meru, not far away from the irrigated fields of Engare-Nanyookye and the Momela gate of Arusha National Park. From a distance the area can be easily recognised through the remarkable shape of Ol Doinyo Landaree, the little mountain that looks like a pyramid.

We, Maasai of Mkuru offer you:

  • A visit to the camel camp at the foot of Mount Meru
  • A thorough explanation of the way camels are kept in the semi arid plains
  • Camel safaris varying in length from half a day to one week
  • Bird-watching walks through the plains around Mkuru.
  • A climb up Ol Doinyo Landaree, the mountain with the shape of a pyramid
  • A view into the culture and daily life of the Maasai
  • A delicious cup of  camel milk

The profit will be used for running a kindergarten for Maasai children.  Your visit helps us to improve
