Nomadic people still living in clay huts, drinking the fresh warm blood of their cattle every morning. Their rituals involve shamanistic healing, divination and prophecy while worshiping their God, Enkai. Warriors perform the ceremonial Masai dance Adumu, “the jumping dance” which leads them into a trance while chanting religious songs praising their ancestors.
Ngorongoro Crater, one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles for its magical setting and for the amazing wild life trapped inside it, is still the home of the local Masai tribes which still maintain their traditional way of life.
