African Bushmen-The Hadzabes. Great Rift Valley

Our day will begin with a journey to Lake Eyasi where we will enjoy visiting with the nomadic Hadzabe tribe to learn about their hunting techniques and their way of life in this challenging environment. Your day with the Hadzabe is not something you are likely to forget. Singing and rhythmic chants drift over from the women’s camp. They grow no food, raise no livestock, and live without rules or calendars. They are living a hunter-gatherer existence that hasn’t changed in the past 10,000 years. What do they know, that we have forgotten? We will venture with them for the day and the morning after, then have dinner and stay overnight at the Lake Eyasi Lodge.

The Soul of Africa. Tanzanian Cultural Explorer Among 120-Tribes

Today we visit with The Datoga Tribe. The Datoga are first and foremost warriors, known for their stealth ability to eliminate their enemy. Little is know or archived about the Datoga. It is known that they migrated some 3,000 years ago from the Highlands of Ethiopia. Datoga’s are farmers specializing in onion plantations, but share similarities to Maasai in some traditions. They are characteristically known for keeping to themselves. They refused to engage themselves in colonization and vehemently resent the government, making them an enemy of the state. However, their current situation has placed them in a pivotal challenge of continuing their traditional existence. An ongoing challenge has been Datoga’s poor attention to health and education but has been slowly changing. Until recently only 5% of Datoga spoke the national language Swahili. After our visit with the Datoga, we’ll enjoy full board accommodation at Kisimangeda Luxury Tented lodge located on an amazing valley.

Explore Ngorongoro Crater. The Garden of Eden.

 Ngorongoro area for a full day game drive. The crater is technically a caldera, the world’s largest un-flooded, in fact, at more than 2,000 feet deep with a floor covering over 102 square miles. Game viewing here is fantastic, as most of the animals stay in this area year round. You can see lion, cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. This is also your best chance to see the rare black rhinoceros. A picnic lunch will be served in the crater, then dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Sopa Luxury Lodge, located at the rim of the Crater.

Roaming The African Big Fives
