When you are planning to come to this village, be prepared to get all the uniqueness from the village adventure. The Rundugai Village has several ethnic groups like the Chagga, Pare, Masai, Nyiramba and Kamba people.
You are going to experience how all these people live together with different culture and norms abut yet in a lot of harmony.
Other than culture, there are also other things you can explore like the Kikuletwa hot springs and many other things around the area.
Here are some of the activities you expect to be involved in:
Weaving is one of the activities you will be involved in here. The locals make a lot of local stuff from local materials and you will you be able to even get souvenirs for our people.
The Masai have a lot of jewellery and you will be amazed with how colorful they are.
The locals here still believe in local medication. You will be taken through the local processes of child delivery.
The local midwives in the community will take you through how they manage pain during births and how thy nurse babies.
The process is safe and many babies have been delivered through this process. Most of the people that go though these mid wives are not paid and therefore they are doing charity to save lives.
Feel free to donate to them.
Maasai working group
You will also be take to the traditional huts of the Masai called the Bomas.
You can spend a night if you wish. This can be organized by your Kilimanjaro tour operator.
The Masai are well known for their herbal medicines. You will be taken through some of the process of making these herbs. The herbs don’t really have side effects like the modern day medicine and therefore you can even try some out.
The herbs are made from leaves, roots or backs of trees. You will get testimonies of how these herbs have worked for some of the locals.
The most prominent herbs among the locals here are the ones meant to help with altitude sickness.
You can also try this out if you are hiking the Kilimanjaro.
