Samburu Village


While we were in Samburu we were able to visit a Samburu village to see the traditional ways of life of these people.

The Samburu live in huts made of sticks and roofed with cowdung

  The young men spend most of their time playing games, singing, and bonding outside of the village


The women of the village gave us a traditional welcome dance

  Some of our women were invited to join them in the dance

The Samburu do intricate beadwork

  Children are very important

The Samburu are especially proud of their school, which educates their children in Samburu, Swahili,  and English   Clothing and other items with American markings are highly prized, even by the very young
