The Elerai community of the famous Maasai tribe lives South East of Amboseli National Park, in Kenya, at the foot of Africa’s largest mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro. They believe their god, Ngai, lives on its snowy summit.
The Maasai pictured here are beneficiaries of the Satao Elerai Community and Wildlife Trust. This trust was established by a luxury tented camp, Satao Elerai, who leases their land from the local Elerai Maasai community. Together they protect the land from poachers, charcoal burners and encroachment from agriculture and development. The community themselves are trustees of the trust and all funds benefit both the community and the wildlife they live amongst. More information can be found at www.communityandwildlife.org
