Maasai shukas

  • The iconic red garment worn by the Maasai is the shuka, a basic piece of cotton fabric that can be worn in a variety of ways, depending on the personal style of the wearer. This colourful display was photographed at Mto wa Mbu (Mosquito Village in the Maasai language), just outside Lake Manyara, which is known for its sprawling curio markets. Twiga Campsite, with excellent facilities, is 5 minutes from the park gate.
