Hunting with the Hadzabe

 Whilst staying near Lake Eyasi we went to visit a group of the Hadzabe tribe, who rely on hunting and gathering. They prepared their bows and then we went with them through the forest, alternating between running and keeping silent. They shot around 6 birds, five of which were small, and a larger one about the size of a pigeon, which they took home for the women to cook. The men we went with were incredibly good hunters and most of the time hit the things they shot at.

Whilst the men were hunting, the women were out gathering roots and edible plants. One stayed behind to watch the youngest children. In the background of this picture you can see a house.
