This is the most important cultural encounter we highly recommend, it is here where you will interact with a society that lives exactly the life same as what our ancestors lived, and the scenery of Lake Eyasi differs dramatically to that of the surrounding areas. Compared to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Highlands this area seems downright tropical. Palm trees border the lake and make homes for birds such as Fischer’s lovebird.
