A mud hut in a Masai Village in Tanzania

When I visited Lake Manyara in the Northern Tanzania, I had the amazing opportunity of visiting a local Masai village. The experience was wonderful as I learned about their way of life. This photo is of one of their traditional mud and straw huts with some of the locals standing next to it. These people have very little, but they are just lovely.

Did you find the experience ‘authentic’? The reason I ask is that I visited a village on the way to the Masai Mara, and it felt more like a tourist trap than a stop to learn about the lives and culture of a local tribe.

Hi Thomas. The experience was certainly a lot more authentic than I thought that it would be. I was expecting a tourist trap and was pleasantly surprised. We were the only group there and we really learned about their culture and how they live. They weren’t trying to sell us anything. I really enjoyed the experience.
