The beautiful Maasai Tribe of East Africa! ♥️ 🇹🇿

We fell in love with the beautiful nomadic people on our last trip to Tanzania in July & most recently this past December!

Their way of life is held deep in extraordinary culture.

We visit them while on Safari just on the outskirts of the Ngorongoro Crater after our 9 day trek on Mt Kilimanjaro.

Some of the unique traditions of the Maasai includes a diet consisting of six basic foods: meat, blood, milk, fat, honey, and tree bark. They drink both fresh and curdled milk. The fresh milk is drunk from calabash and sometimes it's mixed with fresh cattle blood. The blood is obtained by nicking the jugular vein. Mixed blood and milk is mostly used as a ritual drink and as nourishment for the sick. Bulls, oxen and lambs are slaughtered for meat on special occasions and for ceremonies. The by-products of the animals – skin and hides are used as bedding while cow dung is used for building (it is smeared on the walls). The Maasai’s entire way of life truly revolves around their cattle. More recently, the Maasai people have supplemeted their diet with farm crops such as maize meal, rice, cabbage among other food crops.

The Maasai are joyous, warm, independent, welcoming, proud, beautiful, entrepreneurial people!

They sing, dance, work & celebrate with deep passion!

You leave part of your heart with the little children!!!
