Maasai People in Portraits

The Maasai people are a Nilothic race in East Africa who primarily occupy the area around the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, which they call it their home. The Maasai are cattle-herders who are also known as fearsome warriors.

I got to meet the Maasai people in person at their manyattas (villages) on the fringes of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Below are some portraits that I took during this meet-up.
