Bajaj- a mi-covered motor tricycle, designed for three passengers, is a common transport within the villages and beyond. This motor tricycle has added more fun to the old model rickshaw for the tourist to have a view of the whole village on the way. This is very enjoyable having local safaris, travelling around the village not only for leisure, but also for lifestyle study tour of African traditions and culture .Bajaj may eventually lead you to the  different places within the villages such as maasai villages, and Mto wa Mbu farms!

HADZABE HUNTER GATHERS, perhaps the most interested of all the Tanzanian people.

They eschew most “civilized comfort” and don’t build huts, preferring rudimentary shelters of natural vegetation, caves or even in trees, like baboons whose meat they praise more than any other.

They also use powerful longbows and professional arrows to bring down game as large as elephant and buffalo, but for most of the year live wild barriers.

THE DATOGA

The Datoga are pastoralist; they are good at making local weapons from blacksmith – spears, arrows, and many more. Their girls are very pretty looking especially dressed in traditional beaded leather
