Adventures

SHORT & SWEET
ADVENTURES

Explore areas few people know exist, stay away from the crowds and meet one of the last hunter gatherer tribes, the Wahadzabe. They grow no food, raise no livestock, and live without rules or calendars. They are living a hunter-gatherer existence that is little changed from 10,000 years ago. What do they know that we’ve forgotten?. Choose between 2 different itineraries:

Kisima Ngeda is well known for the sheer quantity of birds in its surrounding area, so you may choose to enjoy watching these. Alternatively a walk around the lake, stopping as you go to find fossilised bones. There are also some small fishing ponds that you may wish to sit buy and chance your luck. Or you have the option of heading out to meet up with the Datoga Tribe. They specialise in blacksmith work, and in particular the making of brass jewellery.

Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp

After an early breakfast depart for a morning with the Wahadzabee bushman. They will show you their hunting techniques and you will get to see first hand how they survive in the African Bush. Due to the nomadic behaviour of this tribe, it is not always easy to meet up with them. They move with the animals, as they are hunters, but your guide will know where to find them. They hunt with a bow and arrow and if they are hunting on the day that you are there, they will invite you to join them. The Wahadzabee are the nearest relatives to the Bushmen of Kalahari Desert. In addition to the caves and hunting, they will also show you where they find the plants that they boil down to produce their poison, which they use for hunting. Return for lunch and then spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing by the pool or taking a guided walk around the lake or to the local village.
