Our Visit to a Maasai Village in Tanzania

Our Visit to a Maasai Village in Tanzania

One of the neatest and most educational experiences we had when traveling in Tanzania last year was a visit to a Maasai village.  They have such a unique and amazing culture and it was really cool to be able to visit with them and learn more about their way of life.

We took a 4 day safari thru Lake Manyara National Park, the Serengeti National Park, and the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.  Along our many drives we would see the Maasai villages and the young boys out herding their cattle.  It was fascinating to see how they lived from a far, but we wanted to know more about their culture and way of life.
