The drive takes you to the Masai who are plain Nilotes – a tribe that has succeeded in maintaining their cultural identity and continues to lead a traditional pastoral life. Most Masai wears distinctive clothing usually red to discourage lion attacks. Their primary occupation is grazing cattle and goats in the open savannah.
