Around Lake Eyasi in Tanzania lies the ancient homeland of the Hadzabe people. Their hunter-gatherer lifestyle, mostly unchanged for tens of thousands of years, provides a rare glimpse into how all humans have lived for most of our existence on Earth. We first met them in a cave in the early morning. The sun wasn’t up yet, and already they were preparing for a moring hunt – by smoking big pipes of weed.
If you want to experience the unique nature and wildlife of Africa, a well planned safari in one of the East African countries will never disappoint. When we were in Tanzania in 2002 we did a five day safari in Selous Game Reserve with Woody, a newly established safari guide from Britain, and it was an unforgettable experience. This time we wanted to see as much as possible of the best Tanzania has to offer, so we made contact with Woody while we stayed in Zanzibar, and he had a team in his now much expanded company Wild Things Safaris put together a great itinerary for us based on our wishes and timetable.
