SOME AFRICAN COUNTRIES YOU NEVER KNOW THEY EXIT

SOME AFRICAN COUNTRIES YOU NEVER KNOW THEY EXIT 

KALENJIN


You might not think you’re familiar with this tribe, but if you 

follow long-distance running even at a casual level, then you 

should know that the famous elite Kenyan racers who seem to win 

every marathon are Kalenjins.


HIMBA
The Himba tribe in northern Namibia consists largely of semi-nomadic pastoralists. They are known as the “red people of Africa” due to a red paste made up of clay and butter that they paint themselves with. They are also notable for the holy fire (okuruwo) that burns 24 hours a day in honor of their ancestors.

SAN BUSHMEN

Probably the hardiest tribe in Africa, the San Bushmen of western Botswana are notable for being featured in the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy. They somehow manage to live in extremely dry and arid climates in which water is scarce.


CHAGGA

Living along the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the Chaga people are believed to have been the first African tribe to embrace Christianity, and as a result they were granted better access to education and healthcare compared to their colonized counterparts in other African countries.
MAASAI
The Maasai are hands-down the most famous tribe in Kenya. While the majority of its people have adopted a modern lifestyle, they haven’t forgotten their roots, often displaying their traditional Shuka plaid sheets and beaded jewels. They also continue to live in Boma huts and herd cattle.
