  Samburu warriors
by sachara

Everywhere in the area of Maralal in the north of Kenya we saw the Samburu Moran or warriors in their traditional clothing. We saw them in the towncentre, but also with their camels at the Yare lodge.

These men still live in symbiosis with their environment and the wildlife. They didn't change their culture and traditions in more than 1000 years. Like the Samburu women, also the morans are wearing necklaces and ornaments for arms and head, made of multi-coloured beads. Red and blue are the most used and favourite colours.
