Tanzania Cultural Safaris

Experience the Tribes of Tanzania

The opportunity to see the Big Five and experience the Wildebeest Migration may be what draws many to Tanzania, but interacting with the tribes of Tanzania will leave a lasting impression.

From the iconic Maasai to lesser-known tribes like the Datoga and Chaga, Tanzania has a rich cultural tapestry to explore. Whether you’re looking to add to your trip and build an entire trip around meeting the people of Tanzania, Shadows of Africa has you covered!

Maasai Boma Visit

A visit to one of the many Maasai bomas that dot Ngorongoro is the easiest and cheapest way to interact with the famous Maasai people.

While the Maasai people are not allowed to live within national parks, Ngorongoro Conservation Area allows these semi-nomadic people to continue living their lives as they always have.

Visits to authentic Maasai villages are not easy to arrange, but these tourist-focused bomas offer visitors a chance to explore a village, see traditional dance, and even pick up a few souvenirs.

The perfect stop on your way to or from the Serengeti, a Maasai boma visit is especially fun for kids who might be feeling cooped up on the long drive!

Lake Eyasi Hadzabe Experience

One of our most popular cultural experiences is the Lake Eyasi Hadzabe experience.

These fascinating hunter-gatherers still live their lives much as they always have, defying Tanzania’s rapid modernization in a way that is utterly fascinating to behold.

The opportunity to join the men of the Hadzabe tribe for a morning hunt before touring their village with the aid of a Datoga guide is a truly unique cultural experience, and one of our most popular add-ons. Combine your day at Lake Eyasi with a night at Africa Amini and you’ve got a jam-packed day of cultural discovery!

Ngorongoro Highlands Trekking

For the more adventurous, Shadows of Africa offers a seven-day Ngorongoro Highlands trek that truly immerses you in the local culture.

Accompanied by a Maasai guide and overnighting in villages from the tourist trail, this intense seven-day hike gets you well and truly off-the-beaten-path.

Your trip also includes a chance to enjoy an Ngorongoro Crater game drive!
