    VISIT DATOGA AND HADZABE TRIBE

    Early morning walking and hunting-gathering with Bushmen (Wa hadzabe) hunters or spend time participating in the morning routine of the settlement. Your local guide will interpret for you and discuss hunting techniques still used by the tribes. This dry and rugged landscape is inhabited by Bushmen who live in nomadic groups hunting with bows and arrows and gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits. Be prepared for an extraordinary cross-cultural experience as you join these nomadic Bushmen in their daily life.
    In the afternoon you can also visit the Datoga, a tribe of semi-nomadic pastoralists who migrated into this area looking for good grazing land many decades ago. They have so far resisted neighboring tribes’ cultural infiltration. The women, still wearing locally fat treated goatskin gowns, cut patterns on their faces and bodies to look prettier. Leaning about their tribe is truly fascinating.
