- The Wahadzabe tribe are also known as “The Bushmen”. They are very primitive and live entirely off the land by collecting fruits, vegetables and roots in addition to bow hunting. The language they use is very intriguing, as it sounds like “clicking noises”. The Wahadzabe people live around Lake Eyasi in Northern Tanzania, and they try to stay true to their traditional way of life as much as possible. When visiting the Wahadzabe, you can observe their way of life and join the hunt with the extremely skilled Hadzabe men.
