Across the vast plains of Tanzania moves the greatest concentration of wild animals in East Africa. This area was once dominated by a fierce tribe of nomadic warriors â€“ the Masai.
Today, they live in peace and this is the story of one Masai, Sam Ole Saitoti, who guides visitors through the spectacular wildlife of the Serengeti National Park. Once a year Sam returns to his tribal home to share in old customs and to witness a vital ceremony - the making of a Masai warrior.
