This cost is approximately $ 20/person and you get the opportunity to walk around the village and talk to some of the people there. They explain how they live and some of their customs. They also have jewelry and some other items for sale, but again, this is also optional. Yes, it is a business and somewhat arranged, but still an authentic meeting of people from this very important part of Tanzanian culture
If you visit Serengeti, you can also visit Olduvai/Oldupai Gorge, which is between Ngorongoro and Serengeti. This is also around $ 20. This is where you can see the oldest skull of the earliest man discovered, and also a footprint. This is one of the world’s most important paleoanthropological sites! You can discuss with your guide about these places and decide if you want to go there.
At Lake Manyara there is a culture tour as well. Here you have a village walk and meet people of various tribes. Also you can see a banana plantation, a rice plantation, see how the Chagga tribe makes banana beer called mbege and see local craftspeople creating wood carvings and canvas paintings. Many of our guests have done this tour and really enjoy it! It takes about 2 or 3 hours and is $ 20 per person.
There are many different levels of service with all the different companies. GlossyAdventuresTanzania Tours And Safaris Travel Company has established a high level of service for our guests to insure they have a great experience.
