Very early in the morning we depart to the villages for a local hunting & gathering experience with Hadzabe (hunter-gatherer Bushmen) and Datoga (blacksmiths) tribes. The Bushmen rely on their foraging techniques to survive and you’ll need to be very attentive and at times very quiet, while they demonstrate their animal tracking skills and the use of locally made poisons in incapacitating their targets on which they depend for survival. We will later visit their homesteads, learn about their ways of life, medicinal plants and much more. Later in the evening we drive back to Karatu town.
