Hope Adventures Cultural Safari
Tanzania has about 120 tribes which makes to be most culturally various countries in Africa. Our safaris adopts a community-based tourism approach in which the people are directly involved in designing, organizing tours and showing tourists aspects of their lives in the area they live in. While economic benefit is derived from this activity, some cross cultural exchange between visitors and the local people is also developed. Operated through the criteria of ownership of the activities undertaken and equitable distribution of the income generated are underlying factors of the programme. It is people tourism that enables tourists to experience the local people’s way of life, offering insights into the values, beliefs and traditions in the host communities’ own environments.
The MaasaiThe Maasai migrated to Tanzania over 300 years ago and are famous for their way of life. Maasai families live in small traditional Bomas scattered over a given area.
In the early morning, women leave the Boma to fetch water and collect firewood. At a very early age, young children play around mud houses and also begin to take care of cattle.
The most respected Maasai warriors have been able to kill a lion single-handely. The trip to Maasai land will allow you to spend couple of days experiencing their way of living and local guide will be with the guests explaining the necessary sensitivities of the Maasai culture.
