Learn about Hadzabe life but hunting with them cannot be guaranteed as they only search for food when it is needed - it is not an everyday activity. You may be lucky enough to arrive on the day that they need to search for food and so will only then be taken to hunt (this is not for the faint hearted).

It’s an awesome wildlife experience.  A picnic lunch is served overlooking a small lake populated with hippos.  Enjoy some more game viewing and you return to your lodge in Karatu late afternoon.
