Engaruka: 63 kilometres north of Mto wa Mbu, on the route that leads to Oldonyo Lengai and Lake Natron, is one of Tanzania’s most important historic sites.

Bushmen: The Hadzabe and Datoga tribes are two of Tanzania’s most well-known and prominent indigenous Bushmen tribes. They live near Lake Eyasi in the forest. Like early humans, they hunt, gather fruit, and reside in caves or forests. If you come here for cultural tourism, you can see them. We’re exploring the area on foot through the undeveloped parts. Travellers can stay in five different campgrounds during the two- to three-night tour.
