Cultural tours enable the travellers to visit and interact with cultures of the areas they visit. Visitors to a particular area or home have an opportunity to be part of the music, dance, drama and folktales. They learn about the values of the people and participate in cooking of traditional food and thereafter eating fresh organic meals. You can request different element of the cultural experiences to be added on your otherwise wildlife tour or gorilla safari itinerary.
The nomadic pastoralists grazed their cattle moving locations depending on availability of water and pasture for their animals. Due to a population explosion they have had to settle on farmlands and significantly reduce on the number of cattle they own. However apart from the movements they did in the past, their culture is still rich centred on cattle and milk products. You will have an amazing time learning about their unique lifestyle.
The cultivators on the other hand derived livelihood from working the land and hunting. The daily chores of these people are currently centred on gardening as there is no more hunting due to population increase. In the recent past both the cattle keepers and agriculturalist are engaged in cattle rearing and cultivation of the land. Visiting the home of a cultivator will give you opportunities to learn about the different foods grown
