Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

While on safari in Kenya, we spent an afternoon experiencing the tribal culture of Africa by visiting a Maasai village. A nomadic tribe located primarily in Kenya and Tanzania, the Maasai people are easily recognizable in their bright red robes. They  have maintained their customary lifestyle in spite of pressure to modernize. The simplicity of their lives appeals to me, and I left realizing that sometimes less is more.
