My definition of a tourist company is ‘giving general information, providing historical knowledge and a nice experience for fair value’.

Fortunately Ethnotrax is not a tourist company. They do understand that their client has had their fill of the contemporary travel experience and is looking for something different. Ethnotrax recognises their client has an active adventure-seeking spirit but that spirit is starving for something completely unique.

The journey to understanding peoples’ everyday challenges as well as accomplishments starts and ends hundreds of miles from the village. Mundane habits are forgotten as your adventure unfolds in this unique frontier lifestyle.

 I have no regrets taking the time to visit the village where EthnoTrax took me. I was very gratefull for the expertise and hospitality shown to me in the village. EthnoTrax personnel have a great relationship with the villagers which is enhanced by their fluency in the local language and trade language of the country.  In a very short time, I became accustomed to their ways, even venturing out in my bare feet (with my translators!!) for better footing while walking the well-worn paths between each uniquely hand-made hut.  Being welcomed into their “homes” (ones that consist of four simple wood walls with thatched roofing, mats on the floor – covered by mosquito netting – for each member residing there and a fire pit almost directly in the middle) on a daily basis, making them grin as I attempted a few words in the language and eating their food made this experience unforgettable and well worth the trip.
