Drive from Karatu to Arusha

Karatu - Lake Eyasi – Arusha

After breakfast, you’ll traverse the rough road from Karatu to Lake Eyasi. Lake Eyasi is a seasonal shallow endorheic salt lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. It is in northern Tanzania, south of the Ngorongoro highlands. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy this tranquil environment and to absorb its natural setting.

You’ll arrive in the late morning for a cultural interaction with the Tatoga tribe, a very interesting tribe. Our Tatoga guide at the village will lead the tour. You’ll explore the dry and rugged landscape area on foot, which is still inhabited by a small group of Bushmen, the Hadzabe or Watindiga. These tribes still live in bands, hunting with bows and arrows, gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits, just as humans did to survive 10,000 years ago.

Another interesting tribe in this area is the Datoga (also called the Barabaig or Mang’ati). Initially, they were exercising a lot of rivalry over grazing lands with the Maasai tribe.

After all the activities you’ll be transferred to Karatu at your booked accommodation for an evening relaxation, dinner and overnight stay.
