Add another string to your bow while exploring with the Hadzabe on Extraordinary Journeys' Serengeti safari.

Extraordinary Journeys is offering a 10-day Serengeti safari that combines game drives and wildlife sightings with an in-depth cultural experience.

The adventure begins in Arusha, where travelers will spend the night before flying to Ndutu in the southern Serengeti. A drive through the grass plains, site of the great wildebeest migration that takes place in February and March, ends at the Serian Serengeti South Camp, where travelers will spend two nights. The eight-tent camp, in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, is owned by photographer and guide Alex Walker.

Days four, five and six will be spent living in the bush and exploring with the indigenous Hadzabe, hunter-gatherers who still live a largely traditional way of life. The final three days are spent back at Serian Serengeti South, where newfound bush skills can be put to use on game drives. Private vehicles, guides and spotters will be provided by the camp.

Dates: Departures December 2014-April 2015 and December 2015-April 2016.
Price: From $12,000 per person, double occupancy. Includes most meals and activities as well as in-country airfare. International airfare is not included.
