Hadza Tourism
Increased interest in the Hadza and improved access to their homeland has created new challenges for them. The influx of tourists in some parts of the Hadza homeland has been overwhelming, threatening to forever change their way of life. Much of the difficulty stems from uninformed or irresponsible tour and safari companies, who bring well-meaning tourists to Hadza camps but invest little or nothing in the Hadza community in return. A number of social problems, including alcoholism, domestic abuse, and malnutrition, can and do arise as a result of these short-sighted practices.

If you decide to include a visit to the Hadza homeland on your trip to Tanzania, consider your choices carefully when choosing a safari company or tour guide. Currently, we at the Hadza Fund know of two companies that follow socially and environmentally responsible practices that invest in Hadza communities. Please consider them when planning your trip.

Dorobo Safaris

Kisima Ngeda Lodge

Other safari companies may claim to give back to the Hadza and invest in their well-being, but the companies listed here have a strong record of doing the right thing. If you're looking for other ways to help the Hadza, check out the Dorobo Fund, and the Ujamaa Community Resource Trust, which support land rights activities and community natural resource management for the Hadza and other  imperilled communities in Tanzania.
