Wilson's wedding in the Loita Hills
Wilson's wedding day....Women gathered around the fire in Wilson's house. It is Wilson's wedding party and his village and home is full of visitors. The Maasais houses have very few and little windows with no glass and the only light is from a fire. The fire makes the room hot and smokey and is the focus point of much talk and laughter...It is mainly Maasais who live in the Loita Hills up above the Serengeti plains. They live in small villages and communities called bomas and live mainly of raising and selling live stock such as cattle and goats. Its a very remote region in Kenya, hard to get to without a four wheel drive with very little infrastructure and up till 2010 no mobile phone network. The Maasais are well known though out Kenya and the world for their colorful clothing and their way of keeping their old traditions alive.
