A unique cultural experience with the Hadza Tribe, the last of the hunter-gatherer tribes left in East Africa
Genetically they are not closely related to any other people and have their own unique 'click' language which is believed to be one of the oldest languages still in use today. They are descendants of Tanzania's original hunter-gatherer population and are likely to have occupied their territory for thousands of years with relatively little change to their way of life.
The Hadza are very proficient hunters and foragers who have passed down their skills and techniques. Usually hunting with homemade bows and arrows they are incredibly skillful at getting their prey. They live on a varied diet of roots, berries, honey and a variety of different animals including porcupines, hyrax and many types of birds. They do not store their food and only hunt for what they need on any given day.
They are nomadic and live in temporary huts and periodically move on, taking only what they can carry. They move according to the seasons and where the hunting is best.

Meeting the Hadza Tribe
The Hadza tribe are very welcoming and it is possible to spend a few hours walking with these hunter-gathers, alongside your guide. Trekking with this tribe is a fascinating experience that will take you back to a bygone era, but be aware, their pace is quite quick so you will need to be relatively fit to keep up!
To visit the Hadza tribe you will need to travel to Lake Eyazi and stay at Ziwani Lodge. Our Hadza tribe trip includes one night Lake Manyara where you will get to enjoy game drives in and out of the park, and three nights at Ziwani where you will get to experience 2 mornings with the Hadza tribe and 2 afternoon walks.
