Tanzania Cultural Experience
Tribe & Culture Experiences
Tanzania is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Experience first-hand the graceful Maasai warriors, the ancient ways of the Hadzapi bushmen, and the Waarusha and Chaga farmers and traders. There are more than 120 different tribes in Tanzania, and although they have their distinct ways of life, they gracefully unite to form Tanzania.
Known for being strong warriors, the Maasai people live a semi-nomadic life in the northern parts of Tanzania. Their manyatta homes are made from the grasses and branches found in the region. Visit a Maasai village to meet these proud herdsmen and learn about their traditional way of living- A unique lifestyle not to be missed!
The Chaga, also known as the Wachaga, are the third-largest ethnic group in Tanzania. Methods of organic fertilization, terracing, and irrigation make them strong farmers in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro where they live. Bananas and Arabica coffee are their primary crops, but they also grow beans, maize, and yams. Visit the farm of a Chaga family to see the farming traditions that have been passed down for generations.
Hadzapi Bushmen (Hadzabe Tribe)
South of Serengeti National Park is Lake Eyasi home of the Hadzapi Bushmen. Their hunter/gatherer way of life is steeped in rich traditions that have remained unchanged over many centuries despite the ever encroaching outside world.
