Culture

Tanzania has a very diverse culture, ranging from the dominant Muslim Culture on the coast and old slave trade routes, to the nomadic culture of the Masai.

In the centre of Tanzania are the hunter gatherer tribes of the Hazabe and Hadza, and the traditional leather wearing herders - the Barabaig. In the south are the Makonde people, famous for their wood carvings. The business like Chagga from Kilimanjaro are the dominant tribe in commerce and government.

When travelling to the different locations within Tanzania, you will almost always encounter a village tour in your area, where you will be taken on a crash course of what the culture is like in that area.

These trips are very educational, and an interesting way to compare how your culture differs from that of the locals.

Wild Things can also take you far from the tourist trail to remote villages for a let touristy experience and see people live their lives the way they do.
