Day 5: Hadzabe cultural day – Arusha
You’ll be up before breakfast today, as you’ll be joining the Hadzabe Bushmen for the opportunity to hunt for your own food!
One of the last true bushman tribes in Africa, the Hadzabe live very much as they always have despite the rapid development of Tanzania. With only 2,000 members, the Hadzabe tribe are a fascinating people who offer us a window into how life in Tanzania was in the past.
The local hunters will prepare a demonstration of hunting techniques just for us. Far from being a mere performance, this display reveals a great deal about their everyday lives when they must hunt for animals to feed their families. You will see firsthand how the Hadzabe use distinctive motions and even the body parts of certain animals to lure their prey close enough that they can be brought down with hand-crafted poisons.
After a late breakfast, you’ll have the opportunity for a drive around Lake Eyasi proper. While this shallow soda lake is not home to the same variety of wildlife you’ll find in a national park, you’ll have the chance to spot a variety of bird and mammal life. On occasion, flamingos and hippos even call the lake home.
In the afternoon, you’ll return to Arusha.
Alternatively, you might wish to spend your last night at the world-famous Africa amini Maasai lodge. Here, you’ll overnight in a Maasai Boma and participate in Maasai led activities such as guided nature walks, traditional dance, donkey rides, and more.
