Photographer's Note

Just returned from a 9 days trip in Tanzania, unpacked my luggage and there it is! All i can say: it was an amazing experience and i can't wait for uploading new photos from "the Wild Heart of Africa".

I had the chance of seeing an extensive range of landscapes, people and wildlife ranging from Zanzibar to the Rift Valley, the Swahili and Maasai people to Ngorongoro Crater (the so called Noah's Ark on Earth), Lake Manyara and of course the famous Serengeti and Kilimanjaro. Upcoming days i'll share many interesting photos from my trip.

Some of the most colorful moments were my interactions with the Maasai people, the famous warriors of North Tanzania and Kenya. You can find many books and articles on those people and their traditions.

You take a guided tour to meet these people. They are already everywhere around North Tanzania, living in villages spread on the fertile lands surrounding Ngorongoro and Serengeti Conservation Areas. They usually work as shepherds, protecting the cattle from wilderness.

Though they are still strictly following their traditions, they cannot resist green dollars in any case, saying that "this is for good purpose: supporting the Maasai people and their traditions". This photo costed 10 USD! By the way, the guy in the middle is as fluent in English as anyone on TE :)
