Longido, Tanzania

Longido sits in the remote north of Tanzania, just above Mount Meru and close to the Kenyan border. This part of Tanzania is the heart of Maasailand, and you'll often see a flash of red amongst the trees as the Maasai Morani stride through the countryside.

A small number of antelope and plains game can be spotted in the more remote areas, and brightly colored birds flit amongst the acacia trees. Great herds of cows (and the odd goat too) are tended by the younger boys, and manyattas are scattered across the landscape.

On the skyline, Mount Longido towers over the area, and on a clear day Mt Kilimanjaro can even be seen in the far distance.
