Samburu National Reserve,
Kenya. 2009.

f/7.1, 1/400s, ISO 100

This small Samburu boy and his siblings greeted me at the entrance to the Samburu National Reserve. They were so fascinated with the new-comers and loved to see their faces on the camera.

The Samburu tribe is a cousin tribe to that of the Masai and Kikuyu.
