2017, People of Africa

First Place People of Africa: Betty Reed - Our guide was paddling the mokoro around the lily pads, and he started joking around and he put one on his head, in the form of a hat. I caught his smile at just the right minute. Xigera Camp, Botswana.Second Place People of Africa: Ariella Midolo - During our drive from Ngorongoro to the Serengeti National Park, the Maasai boy was herding the cattle across the gravel road. For the Maasai, cattle represent wealth and power to their tribe.Third Place People of Africa: Susan Bender - This group of Maasai adolescents in Tarangire, Tanzania, were sent away from their tribe for their circumcision ritual. Interesting contrast compared to the other brightly dressed tribe members.
Walter Diehl - A Maasai village on the outskirts of Amboseli National Park, Kenya. The ladies in their brightly colored dresses sang and danced for us after which the men in equally brilliant garb performed their ritual dances to attract mates.Rich Goldman – We were each paired up with two young students to work on school project. Once they got past their shyness their personalities emerged. They were so proud of their work. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.Dave Nelson - We met this woman weaving baskets at a village near the trailhead into Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda. The woven baskets were beautiful but I was really drawn to her by her friendly smile and the kindness in her eyes.
Skip Shipman – Our trip to Morocco was excellent in terms of sequence, pace, venues, accommodations and activities. The sights and sounds were intoxicating. This was a blind street musician in the market area of Rabat.Helen Reinhardt – Our visit to this Maasai village supported projects that benefit this Maasai community as well as others in the area. We had the opportunity to learn more about the Massai culture and way of life.Randy Potts – We were lucky enough, through the experience of our Tanzanian guide and the generosity of the local Maasai people, to have an opportunity to engage the warm culture as well as the wildlife.
Jennifer Steck – We stopped for a bathroom break on the way to Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda. One of our travelers got out and started stretching. The kids copied her and it turned into a dance moves contest. We were all giggling.Jennifer Steck – The medicine man experience at Bwindi was amazing. What he treats on a daily basis with plants, we take medicine for. He was showing us how he measures dosages. Loved every minute. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda.Nancy Alegreto – These school children were fascinated by my digital camera, and kept wanting me to take pictures of them so they could see themselves on the screen afterwards. Taken during our stay at Ngoma Safari Lodge, Botswana.
Rob Grey – The Maasai ‘jumping dance’ welcomed us to a village outside Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. It is performed by the men of the village, who leap into the air to show their strength and stamina as tribal warriors.Ariella Midolo – A Maasai grandmother and her baby granddaughter tightly wrapped with a green and red checkered cloth. We spent half a day with the leader and his tribe members learning about their lifestyle, customs, rituals, and beliefs.Jane Gersh – Outside Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, two young Maasai men display the ceremonial markings of adulthood.

The women performed a traditional cultural welcoming.Michael Ehrlich – This Maasai woman was one of the three wives of Chief Lowbubu from the village just outside Tarangire Park. The villagers were exceptionally inviting and showed us their herds of cows and goats, invited us into their homes.Ray Rhodes – Taken on our visit to a Maasai village in the Amboseli area of Kenya. This group came out to give us a ceremonial welcome dance. The Maasai are big ‘jumpers.’
Nancy Alegreto - During our time at Ngoma Safari Lodge, we spent time interacting with this kindergarten class we presented them with balloons, coloring books, and fake mustaches. It was so much fun watching them laugh hysterically at each other.Marilyn Johnson – Great morning with the wildebeest with our fantastic guide, Hillary. Serengeti, Tanzania.Jennifer Feldman – Taken inside the Maasai Village we visited near the Ngorongoro Crater before heading to the Serengeti. This mother was so diligent with her children, I asked if I could take a photo of her and her baby.
Marilyn Johnson - These Maasai boys had been circumcised but they were not yet considered warriors and could not live in the village with the other Maasai. They were milling around like typical teenagers. Ngorongoro Conservation region, Tanzania.Traci Greenberg – I was fortunate to visit a Himba tribe living in the Kunene Region of Namibia. This mother invited me into her home while she burned incense for perfume and applied traditional red ochre paste to her skin for beauty.Dave Nelson – In Rwanda we had finished a wonderful gorilla trek and were just about to leave the village when I noticed this man at his sewing machine. I went for a candid shot but he looked up and smiled just when I took it.
Ariella Midolo – There were so many special moments on our safari to Tanzania. I was especially touched by the wonderful people we met along the way, like this little girl in a local village.Lisa Miller – The Maasai are famous for their distinct customs and dress and women wear various forms of beaded ornaments in their ear.
