Combine a safari game drive on one day with an easy walk with a Maasai warrior through the forest to a traditional Maasai village the next,

Mswakini Chini is situated around 120 km from Arusha and borders the Tarangire National Park. 1 day is enough to visit the village, but it’s best to extend your trip to 2 days and combine it with visiting the park itself.

Day 2
