Cultural Tours In Tanzania

Tanzania’s people are as diverse as the country that they inhabit- 120 tribes exist with differing culture social organisation and language. 

Adopted in 1963 as the national language KiSwahili is now spoken by more than 98% of the population. The vast majority of Tanzanians live in rural areas and are subsistence farmers or livestock keepers.

About a dozen tribes form half of the country’s population and no one ethnic group is large enough to dominate this has resulted in a balance of power throughout the country; which has eliminated the ethnic conflict found elsewhere in Africa.

We are big fans of cultural tourism in Tanzania -by empowering local communities to showcase their tribe and culture allows toursits to have a more balanced glimpse of life in Tanzania. This type of tourism allows visitors to experience authentic, indigenous cultures by combining nature, scenery, folklore, rituals, art & crafts, ceremonies, dances and local hospitality of Tanzania to give a unique perspective into the daily lives of the local people, simultaneously allowing them to experience the wildlife safari in tanzania as well as learning about the people.
