Cultural tours

Tanzania, boasting a rich tapestry of over 120 distinct tribes, offers a wealth of local history and vibrancy throughout its diverse regions.

The people of Tanzania are renowned for their warmth and openness, making them among the most welcoming on the planet. With a myriad of unique cultures eager to be shared, leaving behind the confines of a 4X4 vehicle to wander through picturesque local villages becomes a rewarding experience. This journey through some of Africa’s greatest cultural landscapes, such as the lush tropical slopes of Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro, introduces visitors to the Waarusha, Wameru, or Wachagga guides proudly narrating tales of their meticulously tended ‘shambas’—boasting coffee, bananas, fruits, vegetables, and dairy cow farming. Meanwhile, the iconic Maasai graciously share their age-old pastoralist heritage. Take the time to encounter the friendly faces of Africa and delve into their ways of life.

“Cultural Tourism is beneficial to everyone… tourists gain unforgettable and unique experiences, while local communities generate income, elevating their standard of living.”

Various local communities independently manage cultural programs, welcoming visitors into their homes and directly contributing to the local economy. This not only allows tourists from around the world to embrace Tanzania’s cultural diversity but also provides local residents in rural areas the chance to forge sustainable livelihoods. Guided by locals who were born and raised in the area, discover the intricate steps involved in growing, picking, drying, roasting, pounding, and brewing fresh aromatic coffee. Engage personally in the process before savoring the taste and carrying home a truly personalized pocket of Tanzanian coffee. In the pastoral landscapes of the North and Lake Zone, trace the footsteps of the Sukuma, Iraqw, Barbaiq, and Maasai to explore nearly forgotten traditions deeply intertwined with nature and wildlife. Follow the rhythmic drumbeats as Ndali and Matengo dancers in Southern Tanzania interpret inherited music and performances. Indulge in local cuisine with its culinary variations, including Ugali, Mlenda, Machalari, Makande, Matoke, tasty Pilau, Nyamachoma, and sample some of the finest local wines and beers. Spend time with local Mamas, learning to cook a wide range of African cuisines and creating authentic handcrafts.

Cultural tours can be brief half-day excursions or extended stays for a couple of days immersed in local villages and towns. Depending on your time and interests, opt for a boat ride down a river, row on one of the many lakes, or listen to hair-raising legendary tales. Paddle between mangroves, sail with fishermen to the pristine sandy islands of the Indian Ocean, Lake Nyasa, and Lake Victoria. Encounter the “Hadza” hunter-gatherer communities in Lake Eyasi and Yaeda valleys, or spend part of your holiday with the amicable inhabitants of Tanzania’s “Switzerland” while hiking through the Usambara Mountains. Marvel at ancient irrigation systems and today’s craftsmanship, listen to a traditional healer’s diagnostic methods, and acquire the correct remedial prescriptions.

Hiking

Hiking is the preferred term, in Canada and the United States, for a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails (footpaths), in the countryside, while the word walking is used for shorter, particularly urban walks. On the other hand, in the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, the word “walking” is acceptable to describe all forms of walking, whether it is a walk in the park or backpacking in the Alps. The word hiking is also often used in the UK, along with rambling (a slightly old-fashioned term), hillwalking, and fell walking (a term mostly used for hillwalking in northern England). The term bushwalking is endemic to Australia, having been adopted by the Sydney Bush Walkers club in 1927. In New Zealand a long, vigorous walk or hike is called tramping.It is a popular activity with numerous hiking organizations worldwide, and studies suggest that all forms of walking have health benefits.

In the United States, Canada, the Republic of Ireland, and United Kingdom, hiking means walking outdoors on a trail, or off trail, for recreational purposes. A day hike refers to a hike that can be completed in a single day. However, in the United Kingdom, the word walking is also used, as well as rambling, while walking in mountainous areas is called hillwalking. In Northern England, Including the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, fellwalking describes hill or mountain walks, as fell is the common word for both features there.
