Africa is filled with dozens of tribal factions, one of the most well known being the Masai. At each village we visited we were honored by a traditional dance from the women, followed by the jumping ritual of the men. There are many magic moments in travel, but surely spending time among these fascinating people ranks near the top.
The fascinating Masai culture and people were all around us in our time in East and Southern Africa, protecting our camps at night, selling gorgeous beaded jewelry, and entertaining us with dance. Here are some of the lovely ladies we met along the way.
