To the north of the Alkaline lake, springs surrounded by ground water forest and woodland abound, supporting a new influx of Tanzanian farmers growing onions and beans, while the hill ridges surrounding the Lake valley to the east and north support a wild and scenic area dominated by ancient Baobabs, Gnarled Commiphoras and huge rock kopjes.
The area is the home to a group of traditional tribes, offering an intriguing chance to glimpse their lifestyles, The pastoralist Datoga people in their traditional mud huts, their women decorated with beautifying facial scarification and the young and fierce warriors who stand guard over their herds easily visited as are the traditional Hadzabe, a nomadic tribe that hangs on tenaciously to their hunting and gathering life style. Apart with cultural activities the area offers superb hiking, bird watching and scenic beauty.
The best time to visit Lake Eyasi is from June to October during the cool, dry months. Visiting just after the rains (November and March to May) will be a nice scenery because of the lush green grasses.
Lake Neyasi is mainly known for its many resident bird species and it is a real bird watcher’s paradise. Large populations of flamingos and pelicans can be seen seasonally, as well as the occasional hippo in the lake.
Tanzania is much more than a classic safari destination. The country has active travelers, water sports enthusiasts and the cultural visitor a lot to offer!
