Itinerary and Highlights of Safari Hadzabe Bushmen
Day 1: Arrival Day
You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and our driver will bring you to your Hotel in Moshi.
Day 2 Moshi – Arusha National Park
After being picked up at the hotel in Moshi you drive in the second smallest park in Tanzania – Arusha National Park. Just a few meters behind the park entrance there are often seen buffalo, giraffe and zebra. In the dense jungle Colobus monkeys jump from branch to branch, and the Momella lakes are home to countless flamingos. Elephants and leopards are also in the park, but unfortunately rarely seen. Optional and extra charge you can book a walking safari.
Day 3 Arusha Nationalpark – Ngorongoro Crater
Today you will head to Ngorongoro. Along the way, you will see the colourfully dressed Maasai, the breathtaking scenery of the East African Rift and the hills of the Karatu District. The view point next to the memorial stone of Michael Grzimek provides a wide view of the gigantic caldron. Its diameter is up to 20 kilometres at some points. Depending on the season, the Ngorongoro Crater has between 15,000 and 25,000 animals. You have a good chance of spotting the “big five” (lion, hippo, elephant, buffalo and leopard). Considering the space, a comparatively large amount of grazers live in this naturally enclosed animal reserve. It is a good food base for more than 100 lions. Its deepest point is the Lake Magadi salt lake. Depending on the season, its level increases and attracts numerous flamingos. Hippos move around in the surrounding Mandusi and Gorigor swamps, which are fed by the rivers of the crater highlands.
Day 4 Ngorongoro – Lake Eaysi
After a cool night at 2500 meters of altitude and a breakfast overlooking the green bushes or Ngorongoro you will drive to Lake Eaysi. Around lunchtime you reach the small oasis of about 1,000 meters above sea level. From the restaurant you have a view of the lake. It is the largest lake in the northern Rift Valley area. There are flamingos, pelicans, watching baboons and smaller antelopes. In the afternoon visit the tribe of the Datoga.
Day 5 Lake Eyasi – Visit Hadzabe Busmen – Moshi
In the early morning you will drive to a group of “Hadzabe”. The Hadzabe are one of the last Hunter tribe in Tanzania. After a welcome and a look at a very simple dwelling (Busch cave) it goes with some men on a common hunting. In the beginning you walk through the bush. Once an animal is discovered, the tempo changed and it is partially running. The Hadzabe hunt antelopes and gazelles, but also smaller animals such as birds and mongooses with bow and arrow. The ethnic minority of about 800 tribesmen leaves on an approximately 1.500 km² area. After an eventful morning with a look into a completely different lifestyle, you will drive back to Moshi.
