EXPERIENCE THE BEST OF TANZANIA CULTURES
With over 120 tribes, Tanzania is one of the most culturally diverse countries in Africa. From the tall graceful Maasai warriors to the ancient ways of the Hadzabe Bushmen, to the resourceful agricultural practices of the Wameru and wachagga the fascinating array of tribal cultures has always been impressive and bears the true essence of the Country.
Cultural tours are a popular product in Tanzania that is mostly sold as an add-on to enrich main safari tour programs. Most cultural tour sites in mainland Tanzania were developed by the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) in conjunction with the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV), starting with selected villages around Arusha in northern Tanzania and spreading out into other areas. These are traditionally existing villages that have been made accessible to visitors who may have a glimpse of the authentic lifestyle of the more than 120 tribes in rural Tanzania.
Despite an increasing foreign influence, Tanzania has persistently maintained its cultural heritage.
Ancient rituals and customs are still observed by many tribes and daily life largely follows traditional practices, which are also a kaleidoscope of the continent of Africa. Life’s most important events, birth, puberty, marriage, and death, are all celebrated through age-old traditional ceremonies.
