10 Most Famous African Tribes (The Original Africans)

Rich with traditions that survived thousands of years, these African tribes are an explorers dream

Maasai

A Maasai Welcome

The second popular on the list is the Maasai, a tribe still known to follow tradition and culture and keep it close to home. The Maasai reside in Kraals that form a circle and people from this tribe are from the countries of Tanzania and Kenya.

Income earned by the Maasai originates from livestock, and a few of these animals include goats, cattle, and sheep. In this economy, livestock trade is a common activity. This leads us to our next tribe, the San Bushmen of Southern Africa.

  1. This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
