The abundance of unique ethnic groups, and their rich tapestry of cultures that remain relatively intact – even in this age of science and technology, people rooted in their traditions – is what makes east Africa and its shores a marvel to visit. While on safari, expect to see nomadic tribes herding their cattle & goats on the grassland fringes of game parks. On the very piece of ground walked by lions hours if not minutes before.
