About this trip


Let’s spend the day trip with the Hadzabe tribe residence, ancient hunter-gatherers who inhabit the land nearby Lake Eyasi, a gorgeous soda lake that’s part of the Great Rift Valley of East Africa. You will be having the opportunity to engage with the Hadzabe people and learn all about hunting techniques, survival skills, food preparation and learning their cultural norms. Hadzabe people search food alone, and return home with golden honey, sweet fruit, or hearty wild animals (meat) when discovered (hunted). Women go out in large groups and forage for bright berries, baobab fruit, and tubers, depending on availability the such variety of snacks as their sources of food. In the rainy, wet season, sweet honey is the main staple of their diet along with colorful fruit, tubers, and hunted meat.
