He has spent the Formula 1 summer break ‘tracing his roots’.
And on Tuesday, Lewis Hamilton took to Instagram to share beautiful photos of his time spent with the Pokot people in Kenya, and he couldn’t hide his joy.
The 37-year-old driver was dressed in a long-sleeved khaki shirt and matching cargo shorts, both with prominent front pockets, and was wearing a bucket hat.
“We’re all family!” On Tuesday, Lewis Hamilton, 37, took to Instagram to share stunning photos of his time spent with the Pokot people in Kenya, and couldn’t hide his joy
Lewis happily danced around with a woman wearing a traditional colorful necklace, beaded headgear, brass jewelry and large loop-type earrings.
The sportsman also checked one of the Pokot people’s spears as he integrated, crouching down to spend time with some of the younger kids.
He shared on Instagram: “I spent time with the Pokot people in Kenya and to be in their presence was one thing… To be welcomed was quite another and a huge honor that I don’t take lightly.
“The way I felt here is how I feel with my family at home. We’re all family after all. I will forever hold this experience, and all my other memories from Kenya and from this trip as a whole.

Kenya has about 620,000 Pokots, according to the 2009 census statistics, and some also live in Uganda’s neighboring Karamoja region.
Earlier this month, Lewis shared photos on Instagram of a recent trip to Namibia, where he “traced his roots” during the Formula 1 summer break.
The professional drive cut a stylish figure in a black Balenciaga quilted jacket and matching trousers as he rode a quad bike through the desert.
In his caption, he explained how he would travel across Africa to discover his family’s ancestry, describing it as a “life-changing reset.”
