Hadzabe Cultural Tour

The Hadza people, or Hadzabe'e, are an ethnic group in central Tanzania living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and neighboring Serengeti Plateau. The Hadza number just under 1000. Some 300 - 400 Hadza live as hunter-gatherers, much as they have for thousands or even tens of thousands of years; they are the last functioning hunter-gatherers in Africa. The Hadza are not closely related to any other people. While traditionally considered an East African branch of the Khoisan peoples, primarily because their language has clicks, modern genetic research suggests that they may be more closely related to the Pygmies.
