We will spend these days exploring on foot this dry and rugged landscape, which is still inhabited by a small group of Bushmen: The Hadzabi or Watindiga, who still live in bands, hunting with bows and arrows; gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits, as the Humankind lived 10,000 years ago. Another interesting tribe in this area are the Datoga (also called the Barabaig or Mang'ati). Initially, they were exercising a lot of rivalry over grazing land with the Maasai., but at the moment it is a thing of the past.
