Cultural Tourism

A visit among the local people of Tanzania is likely to become one of the most rewarding experiences of your trip to Africa. While the amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes often take the limelight, the unique native tribes provide a wonderful opportunity to experience Africa in a way that may touch your life forever. Explore customs and art, and get a fascinating glimpse into an ancient way of life.

Tanzania’s people are among the most welcoming and approachable on earth, with a range of fascinating cultures ready to be shared with visitors. Be prepared for the experience of a lifetime.

Datoga Tribe

The Datoga, known as the Mang'ati in Swahili, live in the pastoral lands of north-central Tanzania south of the Ngorongoro Crater. The Datoga are skilled farmers and craftsman. You will visit their habitat, and experience their culture first hand. The Datoga dress to blend in with the color of the reddish brown soil but on closer inspection you will notice prominent circular patterns tattooed around the eyes as well as their colorful patched leather dresses, bead work, bracelets and necklaces. They live a very difficult life, in semi-arid areas, but their spirit is welcoming and inspirational.

Hadzabe Tribe


The Hadzabe are also from north-central Tanzania, living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and in the neighboring Serengeti Plateau. These native people are the last full-time hunter-gatherers in Africa and live much as their ancestors did for thousands years. You will visit their villages, learn about their way of life, and experience the wonderful warmth and culture of the Hadzabe first hand. Most Habzabe still pursue virtually the same way of life as their ancestors did and this is your
opportunity to experience this ancient culture first hand.

Maasai Tribe

The Maasai people are a semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are among the best known of African tribes due to their distinctive customs and dress. Many Maasai tribes throughout Tanzania welcome visits to their village to experience their culture, traditions and lifestyle. Now you can experience those customs and share a unique view of these incredibly resilient and inspiring people.
