Lake Eyasi is famous for the Hadzabe bushmen. The scenery surrounding the lake is incredible, framed by the Great Rift Valley Wall and the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands. There is very little game present in the area surrounding Lake Eyasi, and the main reason people stop is to visit the Hadzabe Tribe - the last of the true hunter-gatherers.
