Throughout East Africa there are numerous ethnic groups with unique culture traditions. Among the better known are the Bajun, Kikuyu, samburu and Turkana. Perhaps the most famous is the masai tribe. Until as recently as 100 hundred years ago the Masai ruled over much of East Africa. Their warriors were renowned for their bravery. Now concentrated in southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania, they cling tenaciously to their culture and customs. To describe the masai attitude towards cattle as mystical is not an exaggeration- they believe any pursuit other than cattle herding is demeaning to themselves and insulting to their god. The Masai’s many rites of passage give their lives a profound meaning. A centuries old Arab presence along east Africa’s coast and offshore islands provides these areas with a distinctive flavor.
