I Spent 20 Days In Tanzania Where I Discovered A Whole New World Of Tribes

ADVERTISEMENT

I’m Vlad Cioplea, a photographer from Romania. This autumn I went to Tanzania, Africa, to photograph Maasai, Bushman and Tatoga tribes because I’ve always liked to discover people from different cultures and passions. Because of that, a year ago, I started my first project with my friends and their passions, “100 Friends”.

I went to Tanzania on 12 October, on Columbus Day, and I spent 20 days there. I slept in savanna surrounded by wild animals. I spent time with people from Maasai tribe where I found out that young boys are circumcised at the age of 14 and then they are sent away from the village. They have to live on their own and eat meat from what they hunt.

From Bushman people I learned hunting techniques. Despite the fact that they insisted, I couldn’t eat monkey meat. And a young girl from Tatoga tribe thought that people from Europe eat each other.
