Cultural experiences


The people are the country. Tanzania has 130 different tribes representing all the African ethnic groups. So many visitors to Tanzania only come to see the wildlife, missing out on something even more touching - the local tribes and cultures.

We have been offering cultural experiences in Mto Wa Mbu village since 2000. We offer you a stroll through modern Africa - to spend a few hours seeing how Africans are living today.

If you are interested in a deeper and more meaningful connection with the local people, we offer you the opportunity to truly get immersed in a local tribe for a few days. Our speciality is the Hadzabe Bushman and the Masaai. For these experiences see our walking safaris.
