Hadzabe Bushmen Tanzania

This 4-day Classic Tanzania road safari combines exciting wildlife encounters in one of the parks on Tanzania’s famous Northern Safari Circuit with a cultural tour to the hunter-gatherers in East Africa, the Hadzabe. 

Beginning and ending in Arusha, the tour starts with a visit to one of Tanzania’s Park for game drives. Choose between Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, or Tarangire National Park.

Next, we visit the Hadza tribe (also known as the Watindiga or Wahadzabe), who are Bushmen living in small communities fringing Lake Eyasi in Central Tanzania. They are considered the last true hunter-gatherers of Africa.

The Hadzabe do not farm or own livestock, the women collect berries, fruits, and tubers, and the men hunt. Only about 300 Hazabe live traditional lifestyles in camps within the Great Rift Valley area. Hadzabe society is unstructured and does not follow rules and hierarchies.

The men make their own bows out of animal tendons and use poison made out of local plants. These resourceful people also use plants to repel insects, heal cuts, cure snake bites and make medicine. During your visit, you have the opportunity to participate in hunting in the bush, an unforgettable and authentic experience.

We also visit their neighbors the Datoga tribe. These pastoralists are also skilled blacksmiths. They collect metal scrap, which they cleverly process into bracelets, arrowheads, and knives. You also have the opportunity to visit one of the huts in the village. Here you can watch the women how they grind flour from corn, from which later bread is baked.

Tarangire National Park is Tanzania’s top Northern Safari Circuit game park, named for the Tarangire River which flows through the park. During the dry season, the river attracts large numbers of various animals. Tarangire National Park, well known for its diversity, beauty, a huge number of elephants, and the tree-climbing lions. 

Lake Manyara National Park is part of Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit and is famous for its large elephant population, tree-climbing lions, and huge flamingo flocks, numbering in the thousands. The game park is dominated by Lake Manyara, an alkaline, soda-lake attracting a staggering diversity of birds.

In addition to the tree-climbing lions and big elephant herds that Manyara is famous for, the park is also home to an abundance of hippos, as well as plenty of buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest. The Park also hosts great numbers of baboons and monkeys, as well as banded mongoose, klipspringers, Lion, leopards, giraffe inhabit the park, along with bushbuck, impala, and warthog. 

Ngorongoro Crater also known as Africa’s Garden of Eden is a massive caldera spanning an impressive 18 km in diameter with walls as high as 600m. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the densest mammalian population in Africa, with around 25,000 large animals.

The diverse habitats found on the fertile crater floor support a variety of wildlife, including elephants, monkeys, hyenas, jackal, and herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, and other antelope species.
