Summary

Karibu Sana/Welcome to Tanzania. This is the ultimate cultural safari and a most unique chance to bond with and learn from hunter gatherers and pastoral people.
Upon arrival, you will be met by your Tanzania GET Safaris guide, who will transfer you to Mazzola Safari House and Backpacking or Arusha BIMEL Hotel.
After breakfast, your guide will drive you to a store where you can buy any goods that you may need during your safari to make it more comfortable. The first destination is Babati district which is located along the Arusha-Dodoma Road. In Babati, you will meet with some of the last members of the Barbaig (Mang’ati) ethnic tribe, who live as semi-nomadic pastoralists. You will spend your afternoon learning from them, then you move around Hanang area viewing the landscape. After lunch we visit the Man’gati village to learn more about the historical, environmental, social and political life of the Man'gati people. The Man’gati tribe relate somewhat to the Masaai but differ with age sets and clans social structure. Your evening will be at Gama Lodge or Ango Lodges and Hotel, however camping may be organized in request.
Next day after your breakfast, your local guide will guide you through the unspoiled and untouched landscapes of Hanang. You will be able to view a different geological and geographical area of Tanzania. You will enjoy your morning walk through the Hanang area spotting different biodiversity that exist in that area. After lunch, you will trek through the area with your local Man’gati guide who will show and explain to you about the area and their cultural history. Your evening and overnight will be at Mobile safari camp.
The next morning after breakfast, your guide will drive you to a store so that, in case you missed something in Arusha, you can get local or international goods for your safari. You will arrive at Mto wa Mbu and experience the cultural life of the place. After lunch with the locals from Mto-wa-Mbu, you will proceed with your safari to the low lands of Lake Eyasi for your evening and overnight at Tindiga Campsite or a similar rustic accommodation. After your breakfast, you will benefit vastly from the historical and sociological knowledge of the Hadzabe Bushmen and the geological and geographical area. The bushmen here sleep under the stars and have a fiercely unique culture not many tourists get to discover. While moving from one place to another on foot, searching and discovering different unique species from the place, your bushman guide, a hunter gatherer most intimately connected to the bush, will make sure to deliver the most from nature. You will enjoy your lunch around the bush with bushmen and your guide. After lunch you will continue with the first round of the Northern side of the Lake Eyasi area where the bushmen would tell a story about their history. You will enjoy your evening and overnight at Tindiga Campsite or similar accommodation of the same basic standard.
Next morning, your local guide will guide through different bushmen villages with different leaders and authority. After lunch, we spend time with one of the Hadzabe communities that choose to live a traditional hunter gather lifestyle. Your evening and overnight will be at a mobile safari camp.
After your breakfast on the next day, you will be guided for a hunting lesson with the bushmen, before you actually go for the hunting day. The day could as well involve walking and tracking of wild game. Your evening and overnight stay will be at a campsite.
Next morning after your breakfast, you will go with your local guides for a full day hunting wildlife. You will join the men on a hunting and honey gathering trip. The day could as well involve walking and tracking of wild game. You will make sure to hunt a game in order to enjoy a bush braai meat/ barbacue and some will be taken back to village to be shared with the rest of the community. Your evening will be spent at a Mobile Campsite.
After your breakfast next morning, your local guide will guide you to join the Hadzabe women as they forage for roots, tubers and berries. This is a wonderful day, learning about plants and their various uses. Hadzabe women possess unique knowledge about the benefits of plants and herbs. In addition, this is most interesting cultural part of the safari because you will get to immerse yourself in the knowledge that exists between the interaction between humans and biodiversity. Your evening and overnight will be spent in a Mobile campsite.
Next day after your breakfast, you will say farewell to the Hadzabe community while driving on across the lowlands at the head of the vast soda lake to reach the foot of the rift escarpment that leads the way up to the escarpment onto the edge of the Serengeti Plains. We drive, higher to the Ngorongoro Highlands and camp at a seasonal camp.After your final breakfast, we drive through the Ngorongoro Highlands towards Karatu district then head back to Mto wa Mbu for our lunch and then back to Arusha. You will enjoy your evening sunset at either Lake Duluti or Oldonyo Sambu. Your evening and overnight will be spent comfortably at Mazzola Safari House.
This trip can be extended with a pure wildlife safari which can be booked at additional cost.

this is a journey that enables you to grow as a human being. We reached out to peers and connected, we learnt so much from the people we encountered on this trip. It's very basic but that's the point, to live like locals and in doing so, perhaps even rediscover yourself.
