A Day At The Maasai Market

Maasai Markets in Dar es Salaam make a true festival of colours, creativity, art and a great way to support the Maasai community. We at SWEA love to shop at the Maasai markets, not only because of the variety of interesting stuff they sell but also because of the unique craftsmanship of the Maasai that makes every product displayed in full glory at the Maasai shops, a piece of art in itself. We recently went to visit the Maasai market in Slipway, Msasani and thought to share what we saw from behind the lenses of our camera.
