Hanging with the Hadzabe in TanzaniaNgorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

As you traverse the plains near Lake Eyasi in the Great Rift Valley of East Africa, you can almost hear the rhythmic footfalls and pulsating chanting of the Hadzabe people.

One of the last ancient tribes of hunter-gatherers on the planet, whose way of life has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years, the Hadzabe live in harmony with nature, finding everything that they need to survive within the arresting landscapes they call home.

A stay at andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge in Tanzania offers the opportunity to meet the Hadzabe and immerse yourself in their way of life. Here, you’ll learn about their hunting methods and how to forage for tubers, honey and berries in the surrounding shrubbery. After a day of dancing, learning the intricacies of beadwork and listening to stories, you can unwind in your banana leaf-domed stilted suite, inspired by the Masai mud and stick manyatta and decorated with rich fabrics and African antiquities, reminiscing about your experience.

From US$1115 per person.
