As a tourist you are unlikely to come across a shape-shifter or a talking coconut, but you are going to be astounded at the uniqueness of the people. The Hadzabe tribe, living on the edge of Lake Eyasi, are hunters and gatherers, living as their ancestors did thousands of years ago. There is only around nine hundred people in this group living in the traditional way and spending time with them is an experience that is not easily forgotten. Groups of men hunt most mornings, spearing birds, squirrels and if they are lucky - larger prey such as baboons, which also supply skins for their clothes. Women gather berries and other wild foods and look after children. You won’t find any houses or other structures as they sleep in shallow caves or under rocks. There is something undeniably appealing about their life and the simplicity, while at the same time being incredibly challenging.
All 120 tribes in Tanzania live peacefully alongside each other and are united as they are diverse.
