Day trip to Lake Eyasi

per person

This tour gives you the chance to interact with the Hadza community for hunting and cultural exchange. These are hunters and gatherers for honey and insect in the bush. Lake Eyasi is a seasonal shallow endorheic salt lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley at the base of the Serengeti Plateau, just south of the Serengeti National Park and immediately southwest of the Ngorongoro Crater in the Crater Highlands of Tanzania. The lake is elongated, orientated southwest to northeast, and lies in the Eyasi-Wembere branch of the Great Rift Valley. During the dry season the lake may dry up almost entirely, especially in drier years, so that Datooga herders and Hadza foragers will cross the lake on foot, but in El NiƱo years it may flood its banks and attract hippopotamus from the Serengeti. It is a seasonal stop for migrating flamingos.
