Meet The Locals—Cultural Safari Encounters

For most safari travelers, African wildlife takes center stage. But for a cultured traveler, East Africa’s cultural heritage is as impressive as the wild and natural one. East Africa is the cradle of humanity that has seen foreign colonialists, traders, and religious influencers come and leave behind big cities, mysterious ruins, new languages, and architecture.

East Africa cultures are varied and manifold, consisting of various tribes with unique indigenous and foreign-influenced characteristics. Like most of Africa, East African culture is expressed in its arts and crafts, folklore, religion, clothing, cuisine, music, and languages. Even though the cultures are widely diverse, they are also, when closely studied, seen to have many similarities. For example, the morals they uphold, love, and healthy respect culture the aged and cultural rulers like kings and chiefs.

The continent’s fascinating human heritage is all too often overlooked or crammed into a contrived evening show at a campfire. Meet the locals and trade an afternoon siesta for an authentic encounter with village life, adding a meaningful layer to your safari experience and sharing the benefits of cultural tourism with local communities. This is not about attending a manufactured performance or unwittingly intruding on someone’s life. Meet the locals offers an authentic and evocative taste of East African culture within a safari context.
