Tribal & Cultural Experiences in Tanzania

Tanzania is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Experience first-hand the graceful Maasai warriors, the ancient ways of the Hadza bushmen, and the Waarusha and Chaga farmers and traders. There are 120 different tribes in Tanzania, and although they have their distinct ways of life, they gracefully unite to form Tanzania.

Maasai Village

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!

Chaga Farm

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.

Waarusha People

Ng’iresi, just outside of Arusha on the slopes of Mt. Meru, is the home of the Waarusha People. Traditionally part of the Maasai family, the Waarusha have shifted their focus from warrior/herdsman to farmer, preferring to focus on cultivating the land. See their innovative farming and agriculture techniques, including a fish nursery, all while enjoying the beautiful slopes and waterfalls of the foothills of Mt Meru.

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.
