A unique cultural experience with the Hadza Tribe, the last of the hunter-gatherer tribes left in East Africa

The Hadza (or Hadzabe) are an indigenous tribe of northern Tanzania living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift valley and in the neighbouring Serengeti Plateau.

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.
