take you to visit, and interact with, some
of Tanzania’s 120 ethnic tribes through a
people to people adventure.
Recognize authentic and different lifestyles
by watching their ceremonies, dances and
rituals and by listening to their legendary
tales and folklore. Learn about their
culture and traditions. Experience a way of
life that is closely linked to nature and
Saunter through the shambas of Waarusha,
Wameru and Wachagga people on the slopes of
Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. Observe
the different farming methods as your local
guide proudly shows you their cultivated and
carefully-tended fields of vegetables,
fruits, coffee and bananas.
Watch a Maasai woman milking her precious
cows and admire her beautiful beadwork and
other handicrafts. Follow the many steps
taken to produce Tanzania’s famous Robusta
and Arabica coffee beans; from planting and
growing to picking, drying and roasting.
Discover the Iraqw, Barbaiq and Maasai
people of the northern pastoral regions and
observe their close ties to the natural
world. See how easily they have adapted to
using camels (introduced to the Maasai some
years ago after a major drought robbed them
of many of their cattle).
Venture into the lives of the many different
tribes who inhabit the Mto wa Mbu area of
the great Rift Valley ‘’Africat’s second
home’’ and admire the savannah from the
back of a camel while marveling at the
harmony of a life where humans, wild and
domestic animals all exist in an atmosphere
of peace and tranquility.
Take time to visit the people of the south
and the Swahili coast. Paddle through
mangroves while listening to legendary
tales, hear the heart of Africa beating
through the famous drums of the Ndali
dancers, put out to sea with fishermen in
traditional dhows and explore sheltered
coves and palm-fringed beaches. Shiver at
stories of magic and witchcraft, still held
in firm belief by coastal tribes.
Go inland and explore the Pare and Usambara
mountain ranges. Climb a holy mountain and
let your guide show you “God’s footprint”.
Watch exotic birds and admire plants which
are found nowhere else in the world.
Enjoy the comfort of your nights on safari
with AFRICAT, in
Lodges & Camps,
both within and outside the parks. For
following the great migration, we use mobile
camps, which enable us to stay very close to
the herds. During cultural tours you may
camp in a village or spend a night in a
local, traditional house.
