1. Every two weeks - as soon as the rising sun gives enough light to see - young Maasai herders bring their cows and goats into the reserve and trek for almost two hours to the Salt Lick, where the animals eat the clay to supplement their diet with much needed nutrients and minerals. The rangers also go with the herders to protect the boys and cattle from wild animals such as lion, elephant and buffalo. On this trip I went with the filmmaker Simon Trevor.

    More photos of herders at the Salt Lick.
