This is hunting in a unique part of Africa at its best! Buffalo hunters dream about hunting in Maasailand where herds of buffalo mix with the Maasailand people’s cattle as they have for thousands of years. Some of the biggest buffalo taken in Africa today come from this area. Add the cultural experience of mixing with the Massai people and this is one of the world's most memorable hunting experiences!
The Maasailand Area and People
The Masailand area is similar to the famous areas where Earnest Hemmingway and Robert Ruark took their well-written about safaris. A Massailand safari is both a fabulous hunt and a cultural experience. During this hunt you will meet and interact daily with the Maasai people.
Maasai are pastoralist and have resisted the urging of the Tanzanian and Kenyan governments to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle. They have demanded grazing rights to many of the national parks in both countries and continue to live a life steeped in African rituals and tradition.
The Maasai people have lived alongside most wild animals for thousands of years. The Maasai have an aversion to eating game and birds. Maasai Land is now considered to be East Africa's finest game area.
The concession's topography is made up of vast plains with small hills which create seasonal rivers and drainages during the rainy seasons. The dry season transforms these into dry sand rivers which empty into bottom areas, which form great lookouts over the vast plains that game in this region tends to favor.
The hunting area is vast and encompasses 1,600 sq. kilometers. The area has some of Tanzania’s unique species such as Grant’s and Thompson’s Gazelle, East African Impala and Coke’s Hartebeest.
Maasailand Cape Buffalo Hunting Methods
A typical day on safari in Maasailand will be an early wake-up call before dawn with a filling breakfast served with your choice of coffee or tea. You will depart from camp with a fully-equipped hunting vehicle at first light and begin looking for animal sign and tracks. You will drive the vast plains and use the small hills to gain a vantage point to glass for buffalo. Once the buffalo are spotted all hunting is done on foot in the traditional way, but since this area is wide open, it is a very different hunt than the other areas of Tanzania that have thick miombo bush. The open terrain will involve some careful stalking and crawling to get within range of your trophy.
This area produces some of the best trophy buffalo in Tanzania and a 42’- 45” buffalo is a realistic expectation.
A mid-day lunch will be held while out on safari. The afternoon hunt will continue as was done in the morning by searching the vast areas for a suitable trophy bull. After arriving back at camp at or after sunset, you will have time to enjoy a refreshing hot shower before having a relaxing evening enjoying the fine cuisine prepared by the chef.
Your PH will be a very experienced dangerous game hunter with many years of dangerous game hunting experience. He will be highly experienced in hunting Africa’s big game and you will be in competent hands for the duration of your hunt. Your tracker / skinner will be among the best that Africa has to offer.
Limited plains game are available on this safari. For a list of available plains game species use the link below:

The Massailand Cape Buffalo Camp
This hunt takes place from a well-appointed 3-Star East African style tented camp situated in the hunting concession. The guest tents are well-ventilated and have zippered doors at the front. Each tent has its own verandah with camp chairs and tables. The tents have either two single beds or a double bed with comfortable foam mattresses, cotton sheets and duvets. Each tent has its own in-suite bathrooms with hot showers. The camp has daily laundry service.
The meals prepared by the chefs are among the finest to be found in any hunting camp, worldwide. You will enjoy a large variety of wild game dishes as well as more traditional cuisine - perfectly prepared. An exquisitely prepared meal that is accompanied by a fine bottle of wine is an unexpected pleasure of safari life.
The staff will be attentive to all of your needs. You will enjoy tasty meals and then retire to relax around the campfire while discussing the day’s events and planning for the next day’s hunt.

You will fly into Arusha and most likely overnight at a local hotel ($250/person). You then will take a 3-hour drive to the hunting concession in Massailand by vehicle. You will pass through several Massai villages on this drive and although the distance is not far, the drive will be slow because of driving throughthe inhabited villages.
You will return to Arusha at the end of the hunt and you will begin your trip home from there. Depending on your travel arrangements, an additional overnight stay in Arusha may be necessary.
