Tanzania - The Maasai Tribe of the Serengheti

We travel through lush parks along the Great Rift Valley and pass many members of the Maasai tribe. They live in Enkang (compounds) with 10-20 small huts arranged in a circle. Surrounding the Enkang is a fence made of acacia thorns to prevent lions from attacking the cattle. A man's worth is measured by the number of cattle and children he owns.

Tanzania - Ngorongoro Crater, The "Garden of Eden"
