In some ways similar to the Amish, a handful of tribes in Tanzania have resisted modernization and for the most part remain traditional.

Hadzabe: Near Lake Eyasi, the Hadzabe are a small tribe who remain hunters and gatherers and speak a click language. It is possible to visit them and if you like they show you how to make a fire without matches or take you on a hunt with bows and arrows.

Maasai: The most recognizable tribe in East Africa, the Maasai are nomadic herders of cattle. The women adorn themselves in brightly colored handmade beaded collars and the men, in their distinctive cloth, will often showcase their amazing jumping prowess for visitors. Learn how they construct their homes of mud, sticks and dung and join the school children in a song.
