Masai main business - Livestock. Cattle play an important role not only in the economy but also the beliefs and rituals.

Masai settlements are small as I have seen no more than 50-60 people. They are mainly designed in the form of a circle: the outside is a shrub or tree fence closer to the center stands round house, in the center of - fence to keep cattle. The latter is equipped with the center and is enclosed at least 1.8 m high fence, mainly due to the fact that wild predators would be impossible to get to the herd, and that the latter could not fled.

 Masai patriarchal society, men are the head of the family, educated, although some serious work done by women. They build houses, produce food and souvenir, which then sell to interested Westerners. The main work of men - livestock.
