If you are driving through Tanzania, don’t skip a visit to a Maasai village. They’re maybe the most famous of the indigenous tribes of East Africa and the most common to visit, but it’s still an experience worthy of taking.

One can visit the Maasai Cultural bomasto learn more about their unique culture, to take photographs, and to buy mementos. There is an entrance fee to be paid but it is well worth it. Please be sensitive to the fact that it is considered bad manners to take photographs of people along the roadside without consent.
