The Maasai Steppe Conservancy is located between the Tarangire National Park and the Simanjiro Plains within the Northern Safari Circuit. Safari in the Maasai Steppe provides a wonderfully varied experience for people wanting a combination of wildlife viewing, walking, and an authentic "un-canned" cultural experience with the Maasai.
The Maasai Steppe is a vibrant and important ecological stronghold for the wildlife and people of northern Tanzania. Nearly 92% of this critical ecosystem is designated Maasai village lands where livestock husbandry represents the primary livelihood. Maintaining healthy rangelands is critical to both the Maasai people and the wildlife dependent on this arid environment.
This is a unique opportunity to experience and explore the Tarangire and Manyara ecosystem. A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins of mankind and an explanation of the Rift Valley and Africa's big picture. It is a complete semi-desert experience focusing on game drives. Day 9 will be a full day of game drives in Tarangire National Park.

It's almost perfect cone looms over an area of astonishing barren beauty.
At the foot of the mountain, there is an area of rocky desert. Here, you will find the cones of a small extinct volcano and Lake Natron, a huge soda lake that stretches up to the Kenyan border. Flamingoes come here to breed and in the late afternoon sun, the colorful flamingo colonies make a spectacular sight, adding a dash of color against the shimmering water.
