Lake Eyasi Cultural Tour

Meal Preparation, Hadzabe Tribe, Arusha, Tanzania

SUMMARY

This day trip to lake Eyasi is ideal for cultural tour enthusiasts. The trip offers hadzabe indigenous tribe cultural interactions like hunting and other cultural exchange. Hadzabe are typical hunters and gatherers for honey and insect in the bush.

Lake Eyasi is an endorheic salt-lake on the floor of the East Africa Great Rift Valley at the base of the Serengeti Plateau and just south of the Serengeti National Park and proximately southwest of the Ngorongoro Crater.

The lake is seasonal, elongated, orientated southwest to northeast, and lies in the Eyasi-Wembere branch of the Great Rift Valley. During the dry season the lake may dry up almost entirely, especially in drier years, so that Datooga herders and Hadza foragers will cross the lake on foot, but in heavy rains years it may flood its banks and attract hippopotamus from the Serengeti. It is a seasonal stop for migrating flamingos.
