The Maasai are Kenya’s most well known tribe. Proud, tall and beautifully dressed in their characteristic red shukas they are incredibly distinctive as they herd their cattle


The Maasai are pastoralists and cattle are at the centre of their culture and social life. Every man strives to keep as many cows as possible as they represent the owner's wealth and status within the society. It is said, that the Maasai believe that all cattle on the earth belongs to them and as such they still occasionally go on cattle raids to retrieve herds from other tribes, which they believe must have been taken from them long ago. As pastoralists the Maasai have never hunted the wildlife, as they survive off their own livestock.


Children are much loved and the very centerpiece of the Maasai society. A man without cattle is poor. But a man without children is truly poor. When visiting the local village, guests meet children in all ages. Hiding and giggling behind their mothers or older siblings skirts.
