Masai Mara Jump


Masai tribe in Kenya has a lot of unique customs. One of them being the tribe’s jump dance. The men in the picture were just getting ready to show us the ritual. They all sing together while each one of them takes turn to step forward and jump a few times. The one who jumps the highest, gets the girl. Once they started the performance, I got so engrossed that I forgot to take any pictures of the jumps. But here’s a video I found on Youtube.

I was telling my friend about this custom and his response was, ‘Clearly men don’t understand women.’ 😀
