I had a chance to visit Hadzabe tribe during one of my previous safaris in Tanzania. While being in Lake Eyasi region.
They live in the bush, really off-road on secluded parts of the land. before you scroll down to see photos please note, if you are vegetarian, some pictures might be unpleasant, but i am posting them anyway, after all this is how people live.
During the visit i guess it was time for lunch and they had small dik dik – little antelope prepared to put on fire. I will never forget the smell of blood while they were preparing the animal for grilling. Read more about Hadza tribe safari on Safari Junkie
Men were cooking while ladies were chilling in the bush shadow.
After the lunch my fellow traveler was invited by Hadzabe men to try shooting with bow and arrows. I wasn’t allowed, wrong gender:D
And home decoration
I did it! Eversince I saw Ewan Mcgregor visiting Gorillas in Rwanda in Long Way Down, Volcanoes National Park has been on my bucket list. This year i finally fullfilled my dreams, wasnt cheap i admit, but was totally worth it!!
Tracking guide will tell you more about how to behave when you’re in the presence of gorillas but here are some things to keep in mind:
Dont point index finger into gorillas, they have bad experience with poachers and they might think you want to shoot them
Dont make eye contact with gorillas – can be seen to be aggressive
If gorilla approaches you just act submissive and crouch down, but never run away!
Besides its not allowed to take food, drink with you – you will leave your backpack and unnecessary equipment, clothes in a safe place about hundred meters before you approach gorilla area.
But before i leave to the airport some more pics from safari in Tanzania.”-)
Thats all i managed to sort out for now….
Marabou Stork – Serengeti Standing over 120 cm tall with a wingspan of more than 10 feet, these African birds are scavengers of large carrion, which is why they have featherless heads. They also eat other birds, and have even been known to consume flamingos.
In two days i have probably saw only a pixel of mega big 14,763 sq km Serengeti. Definitely worth a bumpy ride!
Along with wildlife i just fell in love with the endless skies that looked awesome just in every part of the day. Hypnotic!
Joined safari with Shadows of Africa
Just came back from safari in Serengeti. There are so many pictures so i decided to break safari in Tanzania to multiple posts. We had a wonderful chance to observe this amusing lion couple just about 4 meters from the safari car. Lioness was not in the mood for love right a way, but lion was persistent, so finally…. Love is in the air.
This was my second time safari with Shadows of Africa. www.shadowsofafrica.com
Travel plans for this Christmas are special, my wish to see mighty Serengeti will come true finally. Last year I already saw Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara. This year I am ready to witness wildebeest migration in full swing in Serengeti! YAY!
