Cultural JourneysAfrica is home to some of the most impressive concentrations and diversity of wildlife left on the planet, yet many travelers fall in love with Africa while on safari through relationships developed with their local guides, lodge staff and communities. Africa's people are warm, proud and rich in heritage.
The cultural diversity of Africa is as diverse as the land itself with many tribes still living in their ancient ways resisting the outside influences of the modern world. Imagine the opportunity to immerse yourself in lives of Tanzania's most ancient nomadic tribes by walking along the same paths and meeting the Maasai in their daily lives on a Maasai Donkey trek through Maasailand or the opportunity to hunt with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari.
If you prefer something less adventurous visit a local wildlife conservation project, Children's home, coffee cooperative, or school to get a feel for what it is like for the local people. Spend time wandering through local markets as each has it own flavor and rhythm created by the people who come to sell or trade their wares. Or enjoy one of the many music festivals held in the different countries.
There are many ways to get off the beaten path and experience the true cultures of the country you are exploring. These experiences can be built into existing safari itineraries or entire trips can be created to explore the cultures and colors Africa.
