The meadows along the shores of the mildly alkaline Lake Eyasi are not only home to a wide variety of wildlife including leopard, hippo, monkeys, birds, flamingos, storks and pelicans, the area is also home to the Hadzabe bushmen, the last tribe of hunter-gatherers in East Africa.
Some 200 to 400 Hadzabe Bushmen still live much as they have for tens of thousands of years. Their simple shelters are built from grass, branches and earth.
During the rainy season they still live in caves. During your visit to Lake Eyasi, you may visit with the Hadzabe Bushmen to witness their primitive way of life, and even accompany them on a early morning hunt.
