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
