Description

Guests depart Arusha at 6am to visit a Hadzabe community in the Lake Eyasi area. The Hadzabe have likely lived in this region for thousands of years with minimal changes to their way of life until recent times. This trip will allow visitors to discover some of the traditional aspects of their life and culture. On arrival at the village, you will be met by members of the community who will be your guides/hosts for the day. They will introduce you to the village elders and take you on a short tour of the village before heading out to the surrounding woodlands. As a nomadic people, they typically did not practice farming and agriculture, surviving primarily by hunting and foraging for food. During the trip you will get a glimpse into some of the typical elements of their hunter-gatherer lifestyle such as hunting with bows, arrows and spears, foraging for food and medicinal plants and harvesting wild honey. While hunting, foraging and honey harvesting may not be possible for persons with reduced mobility visits to the village itself can be arranged. There visitors can learn about and participate in other aspects of the daily life and culture of the community eg. cleaning and skinning animals caught during hunting, making outdoor fires for cooking, how to use a bow and arrow, traditional plant remedies, Hadzabe history, language etc. Overall, participating in a Hadzabe day trip provides a fascinating insight into a culture that has largely maintained its traditional way of life amidst modernization. The tour ends at the village at 4pm.
