ADMIRE THE TANZANIA CULTURE.
Tanzania has around 120 different tribes representing all the Tanzania ethnic groups. So many visitors to Tanzania only come to see the wildlife, missing out on something even more touching – the local tribes and cultures. We have been offering cultural experiences in Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro and neighboring villages in the city of Arusha. We offer you a stroll through modern Africa to spend a few hours seeing how Africans are living today.
IMMERSE IN THE CULTURE AND HUNT WITH THE HADZABE & BUSHMENS
Spend the day with the Hadzabe people, ancient hunter-gatherers who inhabit the land near Lake Eyasi, a gorgeous soda lake that’s part of the Great Rift Valley of East Africa, and witness their unchanged, traditional way of life and harmony with the earth. Accompanied throughout by our guide and a local guide from the area, guests have the opportunity to engage with the Bushmen and learn all about their time-honored hunting techniques, survival skills, food preparation and cultural norms. A veritable step back in time, this is an undeniably authentic cultural journey into rural Tanzania that reveals the untold world of these charismatic people.
Amongst the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer tribes inhabiting the scrubby bushland, Hadzabe men search for food alone, and return home with golden honey, sweet fruit, or hearty wild game when, and if available. Women go out in large groups and forage for bright berries, baobab fruit, and tubers, depending on availability. In the rainy, wet season, sweet honey is the main staple of their diet along with colourful fruit, tubers, and sometimes meat.
Adjusting their diets to the seasons this tribe are incredibly skilled, selective and opportunistic seekers and searchers. They have only themselves to rely on to feed their families.
IMMERSE INTO THE MAASAI CULTURE.
An adventure to Tanzania wouldn’t be complete without meeting the enchanting Maasai. This wonderful cultural excursion will immerse you in the fascinating ancestry of these noble people. At the Maasai village playing host to your tour, you will have the opportunity to meet with a Maasai family, visit a traditional boma, the village huts (called Manyatta), made of cow dung and clay plastered over stick frames.
The most famous of Africa’s people, these fierce warriors are still practicing their ancestral way of life and are known for their pastoral traditions, living off their herds of cattle, sheep, goats, and donkeys. Since time immemorial the Maasai moved nomadically in search of water and pasture for their herds. Today they have established permanent settlements, and many of the Maasai do not roam. They still exist on a diet of milk, blood, and meat, however, it is becoming very common place to supplement their diet with grain. The few Maasai left today still coexist collectively with the profuse wildlife.

A visit to these multi-cultural town of Mto Wa mbu is really interesting since most of the tribes in Tanzania are represented here, walk along the rice field, visit the local beer brewing factory, visit the makonde carving site and finish you tour by enjoying some local lunch prepared by the local women.
