This what you can see are massai houses in a massai village near the serengeti np.
We payed 60 dollars for go in.
This man also lives in this village.
In the village are about 70 inhabitants.
They are the only massais which sell themselves by getting money for the tourists.
Hope you like this one
Best regards Toba

A beautiful continuation on your voyage in Africa. Pretty catch of sight on this village. The trees brings a good balance to the image. An interesting photograph on the life and the habitat of these people emblematic of Africa. Thank you Tobias.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,

This is a fine village scenery, with the traditional houses and typical trees!
A well balanced composition with fine details, the woman is well placed in the frame and stands out in her colourful dress...

A classic view of the inside of the village. I decided not to go in when I was there, I was worried it would be a tourist trap and fake interaction... But sitll you got to get good photos like this out of it.

You framed this well and even managed to include a little bit of the trinket stall on the left. The girl walking towards you is an important part of the image. Good work

Hallo Tobias. Dörfliches Landleben, - hier als Touristenattraktion. Wie heißt es so schön: die Massai sind ein Volk, dass vom Photographiertwerden lebt. Wie auch immer, man bekommt einen Eindruck von den Lebensverhältnissen dieser ethnischen Minderheit. Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.

Hi, Tobias -
A very nice daily life shot. The bits of color seem almost too bright, the way they stand out from the surroundings.
Maasai (the usual spelling, at least in Kenya) do sell tours of their villages in Kenya as well; in fact, they can be downright obnoxious about it, especially in the Maasai Mara (the Kenyan extension of the Serengeti plain).

The local colors and the place by itself are always very intersting in these Massai villages. You did well to include this little guy.

A great portrait of an exotic daily life. Very nice POV and clever use of colours.

A picture in the true TE spirit. 60$ to go in seems too high a price...perhaps because tourism is the main economy here. Framing is done very well, especially we see some trinkets on the left. But the most important part is the girl walking towards you...well done!

It's great of you show of the image of the Masai village, most tourists do not see this. They just go to the parks and see the animals and go home. That's not all it's about in Tanzania/Africa. These are very interesting people, we may not agree with certain things they do but should learn more about them. Great image with good quality and details. Thanks for this and your nice comments my friend.

Hi Tobias, all the Tanzanian serie is very interesting, especially I like this one for it's reportage appeal, but I would like to congrats with you for all your really nice works.
have a nice day,
