Masai is a Nilotic people of Kenya and Tanzania who speak a Sudanic language. They are nomads with little centralized political organization.Age sets are the basis of social organization, with three principal stages for every male: boy, warrior and elder.

Estimates of the respective Maasai populations in both countries is complicated by their nomadic nature and their being the only ethnic group allowed free travel over the Kenyan-Tanzanian border.
