While visiting the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, our tour group had the opportunity to visit a Maasai village. From our group of 10, only 3 of us decided to visit the village. For a small fee, we would get a chance to interact with the Maasai and learn a bit about them.
I had remembered seeing on various television shows how the Maasai love to jump. This was right up my alley and I was hoping to get some great shots jumping with them. After being welcomed to the village, they started to do some jumping for us and invited us to join them.
I ended up getting a few good pictures jumping with the Maasai. I also got to wear one of their traditional robes and learned a lot about daily life in the village.
The visit was well worth the $15 or so we each spent to get a glimpse into the lives of these interesting people! (and for the great jumping opportunities!)
