Sien baie Masaai met hul helder rooi shukas en lang stokke langs die pad.Hulle is nomadiese veeboere, hoe meer beeste en kinders hoe ryker is hulle. Hulle is bekend as gevreesde vegters, die slawe handelaars het hulle vermy,Die mans is lank en lenig en die vrouens versier hulle met oorringe, halssnoere, groot gate in die ore.Kamp by Kudu lodge in Karatu.Die lodges wat ons van praat is meestal n enklawe binne in die village, met heinings en baie basiese geriewe, maar jy is maar tussen die locals en hul discos, honde en hoenders.
We see many Masaai with their bright red shukas and long sticks next to the road. They are nomadic live-stock farmers; the owners wealth is measured by the number of cattle he owns. They are known as feared warriors, the slave traders avoided them. The men are tall and slender and the women beautify themselves with earrings, necklaces and big holes in their earlobes. We set up camp at the Kudu Camp and Lodge in Karatu. The lodges we refer to are usually enclaves within a particular village, with fences and basic amenities, but you are still in the village amongst the locals with their discos, dogs and chickens.
