The Maasai people are a semi-nomadic tribe located in Northern Tanzania and Kenya. This particular tribe living in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, an area north of Arusha, Tanzania, welcomed us to their village/boma. They wear mostly bright red colored clothes and wear brightly beaded jewelry which is handmade by the women. Traditionally their diet consist of raw meat, raw milk and blood from cattle.
