At Kilimanjaro Vacation Company the health and safety of our clients is number one priority and with the alarming and incomplete publicity reports on Ebola, we will be giving you travel updates if it’s still safe to travel.
Over the last few months there has been widespread and often frightening coverage of the Ebola outbreak in parts of West Africa, and our thoughts are with all those fighting this terrible disease.

At the same time as the coverage has highlighted that the disease is not airborne and can only be contracted by contact with body fluids from an infected person, and as of this widespread information we have had a number of people asking if it is safe to travel to Tanzania, and other destinations in East Africa.
Africa Is A huge Continent distance must be put into consideration.

The definite answer is ‘yes – you can still safely travel to Tanzania and Other East African Countries like Kenya, since up to this time we have not seen any case since the outbreak and this trace back to 1976 since the disease was noted’, however given the seriousness of the situation they are things to consider like the distance from the center of the outbreak and Tanzania which is 3,000 miles and this is the same distance from West Africa to  London so if you are in Europe why should you not make your dream trip to Africa ,Tanzania in particular.

Life of the Hadza Hunter.

The Hadza people are an ethnic group living in central Tanzania around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and in the neighboring Serengeti Plateau. The Hadza people raise no livestock, grow no food, and live without calendars or rules. They are living a hunter-gatherer existence that is little changed from 10,000 years ago. It is estimated that the Hadza number just under 1000. Today they are the last functioning hunter-gatherers in Africa. 

Language :Their click language echos the earliest language spoken by ancient humans tens of thousands of years ago.

: The Hadza are highly skilled, hunters and foragers, who adjust their diet according to season and circumstance.
Division of labor
 Women forage for berries, tubers and greens depending on availability. They use a digging stick and large skin pouches hung around the neck for carrying items. While men specialize in procuring meat, honey, and baobab fruit, women specialize in tubers, berries, and greens. 

 The Hadza move camp for a number of reasons. Conflict is resolved primarily by leaving camp; camps frequently split for this reason. Camps are abandoned when someone falls ill and dies as illness is associated with the place they fell ill.
 : their own religion is minimalist. They do have a cosmology and men can tell endless stories about how things came to be.
Clothing : Although most Hadza wear western style shorts and shirts, many still prefer traditional dried animal skins draped across the body as clothing.

Trade : Hadza today trade meat, skins, and honey in exchange for tobacco, marijuana, maize, millet, clothes, beads, cooking pots, and scrap iron for making their axes and arrowheads
