Can I photograph locals?

Answer ( 1 )

  1. Snapping photos of the locals is a big part of enjoying and remembering a new culture, but the people of Africa are every bit as conscious of being photographed without permission as you would be back home.

    How would you feel if a stranger got in your face and took a photo without asking?

    It is always a good idea to ask – either through your guide or with miming – whether it is okay to photograph somebody.

    When asking to photograph the Maasai, please be aware that they will often expect some payment for this. Be prepared to pay a few USD after snapping your photos.
