The program that has recently been included in our list of tours but more interesting and exciting than others. Experience major tribes which found Tanzania. It concerns the tribes chagga who live around the slope of Mount Kilimanjaro, Nilotic ethnic group "Maasai" They are among the best known local populations due to their distinctive customs and dress. The Maasai speak the Maa language, a member of the Nilo-Saharan family and Hadzabe who still live in the wildest conditions, they are engaged in hunting and gathering, do not recognize the benefits of civilization and the word “fashion” is not something that they are familiar with. Local Living trips are centre-based, which means you stay in one location for the majority of your trip. What sort of locations? family homes, jungle homestays and Masai boma. You'll love them so much, you might be tempted to start forwarding your mail there.
