African Sand Storm
The portion of the Great Rift Valley that bisects southern Kenya is known as the Gregorian Rift Valley and I was privileged enough to be based there for a period of time. This portion of Masai-land, is occupied by the Loodokilani clan of the Maasai tribe, whose attire is dominated by white beads, with less traditional red colouration than is worn by neighbouring clans. The Maasai are indeed indigenous conservationists who refuse to eat wild meat and who do not fence off watering points. They are also pastoralists who traditionally do not grow crops and all of these factors combined, means that one finds not only wildlife in their territory, but indeed a functioning ecosystem! In fact, two of Africa’s most famous parks, the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, lie in the heart of traditional Maasai territory!
