Visiting The Masai

Published November 30th, 2012

Along our trip to the beautiful country Kenya, we stopped by a small tribe called the Masai. The Masai are a Nilotic ethnic group of semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are among the best known of African ethnic groups, due to their residence near the many game parks of East Africa, and their distinctive customs and dress.
