DAY 4: HADZABE TRIBE AND DATOGA TRIBE TO MTO WA MBU
After early breakfast at the lodge we go to visit the hadzabe tribe and datoga experience there life style where the hadzabe are pure hunters and datoga man made tools iron smith
The men are the hunters of the tribe, with the women and children gathering berries, baobab fruit, and edible tubers. As hunters, the Hadzabe are unusually adept, using a hunting style that’s amazing to see.
Using bows and arrows, with the tips dipped in poison from the Adenium shrub, the men make use of camouflage to lure their wild game. The men are also adept at gathering honey. Working through whistle calls with an African bird that’s been named the “honey guide”, the bird guides the Hadza hunter to a beehive. The Datoga are constantly looking for the best grazing spots for their cattle; in their search, they travel along a path that is the same every year, according to the alternation of the seasons.There are periods of the year in which, moving from a place to another, they even cover 55 km a day! Nowadays, these proud people live concentrated on the shores of Lake Eyasi, bordering the dwelling area of the Hadza, with whom they make trade arrangements. The Datoga are skilled blacksmiths and make arrow tips and other objects that they barter with the Hadza in exchange of honey and animal hide.
A notable difference between these two people is the reputation of the Datoga as ferocious warriors. Young people have to prove their ability as warriors by killing an enemy or a dangerous animal, like a buffalo, to be accepted as adults. The Datoga view all of the people who do not belong to their ethnic group as enemies; due to their warrior mindset, they are known to most of the people of Tanzania as "Mangati", a Maa word meaning "enemy".
The language spoken by the Datoga is Southern Nilotic, while only 5% of them speaks Kiswahili, too: on the one hand, this is a contribution to the preservation of their traditions; on the other, it is a further reason for isolation from the rest of the world. The Datoga are animists and they practice witchcraft, they communicate with their ancestors through a warlock and carry out purification rites from everything they consider impure. And back to the lodge for lunch and transfer to mto wa mbu.
Dinner and overnight at fanaka lodge
