Meeting a Village Elder

Meeting a Village Elder

Insider’s Take

Tribal life is an inextricable part of the story of Africa. In the modern world, a connection to the proud past is more important than ever.

As part of most Micato safaris, you are introduced to a village elder, the keeper of tribal traditions. Appearing quietly regal in his local garb, he speaks to you about the tribe’s history and their hopes for the future.

He tells fascinating tales of rituals that have lasted for centuries, including the initiation of young boys into warriorhood. You listen eagerly, and are encouraged to ask questions and challenge assumptions.

This is a rare opportunity to understand a vastly different culture, and to connect first-hand with a timeless tradition.
