On our first day at the Lake Eyasi after a long and very bumpy drive, (see picture below for "the road") we saw the Hadzabe ("bushmen" / Hadza people). This is an ethnic group in Tanzania who still live as hunter-gatherers. We were highly impressed to see how they move through the bush and had the chance to see the place where they live. We were allowed to shoot with their bows and arrows, try to set fire with nothing more than a stick and we joined them in their dance. There were 4 men, 3 women and 3 children. It was one of the most interesting and impressing parts of our tour in Tanzania!
