Hadzabe Tribe at Lake Eyasi


The Hadza, or Hadzabe, are an indigenous ethnic group in north-central Tanzania, living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley. Between 1,200 and 1,300 Hadzabe people living in Tanzania.

Still leading the same hunter-gatherer lifestyle that has sustained their people for generations, the Hadzabe make use of locally made poisons and ingenious camouflage to hunt.

Visitors to Tanzania can not only visit with these traditional people, but also witness a thrilling sunrise hunt to see just how these hardy people have survived in the sometimes harsh Tanzanian wilderness for thousands of years.

The Hadzabe culture is very surprising especially when you come across their way of life from childhood to adulthood.
