Maasai Leaps
Photo By Ray Boren

  • Title: Maasai Leaps
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Kenya
  • Nearest Area: Maasai Mara National Reserve
  • Nearest Town: Enkereri, Kenya
  • Brief Directions: The remote Maasai Mara National Reserve is in southwestern Kenya, at the top of the route of the Great Migration of wildebeests and other creatures from the Serengeti, farther south.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: As part of vehicle safari of Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve, I visited the Maasai village of Enkereri, which the chief told me means "Viewpoint," for it is on a ridge above the acacia-spotted savannah far below. For a fee, the villagers allowed our group to watch their dances, visit a few of their homes - and take photographs. The young men, dressed in their bright robes, each took a turn making athletic standing jumps, a Maasai tradition showcasing their strength, dexterity and determination.
  • Gear: Nikon D60, with a 35-70 mm zoom lens
