The vast majority of Tanzanians still live a lifestyle very close to their traditional lifestyles, and most people are subsistence farmers.
The Maasai people favored by photographers for their strikingly colorful decor, live a pastoral existence following their herds of cattle to better grazing areas, still adhering to the traditions and ceremonies of their ancestors.
Their villages are located throughout northern Tanzania, Other small tribes of hunter-gatherers, living according to their ancient customs and traditions can also be found in this area.
At Kilimanjaro Brothers Tours, we consider the cultural component of any safari to be subtle yet essential.
All of our guides are Tanzanian born. They are an excellent resource to help you gain greater insight into the local culture. We don’t promote specially staged dances and tourist oriented presentations.
Instead on most of our trips, we begin with a visit to a traditional village where you are welcomed as friends of Kilimanjaro Brothers Tours and Safaris into their lives and invited to get to know them as they get to know you.
As we drive between parks, we pass many villages and Masai Bomas giving you further glimpses into the lives of the Tanzanian people. We also offer a special trip in which our guests travel well off the beaten path to spend time among the other local people and observe their traditional ways of life.
