The Hadza, or “Hadzabe tribe” is an indigenous ethnic group in north-central Tanzania, living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and in the neighboring Serengeti Plateau. This cultural experience is one of the most sensitive cultural encounters available in the world today. The essence of Hadzabe culture can be summed up in one word: Harmony. They live in harmony with each other, nature, and themselves, it is almost impossible to spend time with traditional hunter-gatherer tribes and not affect the way they live.  But the Hadzabe in Northern Tanzania lives today as they have lived for thousands of years: hunting for game with bows and arrows, gathering honey from the beautiful African baobab trees, and digging for roots and tubers from deep within the arid ground of the acacia bushland. And this will really bring a deep sensitivity to your African culture. After having the lessons, you will depart to your accomodation for your dinner and overnight.
