Lake Eyasi is a mildly alkaline lake stretching for about 50 km to the southwest. To the northeast, as far as your eyes can see, the horizon is dominated by the impressive Crater Highlands, and to the north the plains of the Serengeti. Lake Eyasi is inhabited by small groups of bushmen, the Hadzabe Tribe, who live in groups hunting with bow and arrows and gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits much as humankind lived in the Stone Age. In the afternoon a guide will take us to visit a small Hadzabe tribe and get an in depth look at how they continue to survive and how they adapt to their harsh environment.
