Hadzabe and Datoga: The tribes of Lake Eyasi

The tribes of Lake Eyasi: meeting with the culture of Tanzania

Hadzabe Bushmen, Datoga Tribe & Tarangire (2 days)

The Hadzabe and Datoga are two tribes that reside near Lake Eyasi in Tanzania. The Hadzabe are considered to be the last hunter-gatherers in East Africa and they live a lifestyle similar to our ancestors in the Stone Age. They hunt with bow and arrow and gather fruits, roots, and honey from baobab trees. On the other hand, the Datoga are pastoralists and skilled blacksmiths who make everyday objects such as arrowheads and knives from scrap metal. Both tribes offer a unique cultural experience for visitors to Lake Eyasi.
