Hadzabe & Datoga Visit
Datoga and Datoga visit
We have very unique tribes that the clients will pay a visit to. Hadzabe and Datoga are the very unique tribes we have in the area, the last hunter-gatherer’s tribe left in Tanzania.
The Hadzabe bushmen live in and around Lake Eyasi, just south of the Ngorongoro Highlands. This region is also home to the Datoga and Mbulu tribes. A cultural visit with the Hadzabe and theDatoga is possible and they will show you how and where they live. One of the oldest tribes in Africa, the Hadzabe have consistently lived a hunter gatherer lifestyle without ever having to resort to farming. The Datoga are skilled farmers and crafts people. They keep goats, sheep, donkeys and chickens. However, cattle are by far their most important domestic animal. The meat, fat, blood, milk, hide, horns, tendons and dung of every animal have either practical or ritual purposes
