Day 7 & 8: Full Days at Lake Eyasi:

     • Day 7: Join Hadzabe women:

This day we spent with the women of the village. Joining them as they forage for roots, tubers and berries this is wonderful day learning about plants and their various uses; we spend time with one of the Hadzabe communities that choose to live a traditional hunter gather lifestyle. They live far from the normal tourist route and are therefore very difficult to reach by car. We always plan to spend two Nights close to the Hadzabe village. Also, since it is difficult to understand and absorb the harmony and serenity of the Hadzabe with a flying visit we advise to be in this pack for two days.  Later evening drive planned accommodation for overnight.

     • Day 8: Hunting trip:

The full day we join the men on hunting and honey gathering trips. We try to keep groups of guests quietly in order to avoid alerting the game to our presence and having an adverse effect on their hunting. The day could well involve walking and tracking of wild game. Although one might think that meat forms a large part of the diet, the Hadzabe are largely vegetarians and the majority of their meals are based around honey and fruit.

Spending time with the Bushmen is a powerful experience and hard to beat. But we also live and walk in the most beautiful African bush, constantly surrounded by wild animals. Anybody who enjoys spending time close to nature in wild will love this trip. Most afternoons are spent in and around accommodation, relaxing and taking our own bush walks in the area.
