Outdoor and Professional Activities
Pygmies are natural hunters, and carvers. They make spears, bows and arrows from tree trunks as hunting weapons. The hunters mostly go out in large groups to set traps for smaller animals, and hunt down bigger ones together. After every catch, the hunters sit down and the team leader shares the meat to them all before they depart to their homes. Hunting is dangerous but mostly fun.
The hunters specialize in catching sea animals such as fish and turtles using nets, and canoes dug from tree trunks. Joining in the canoe ride is mostly exciting on the waters with their turbulent nature of great rushing of waves. You may also take the chance to swim in the calmer parts of the waters.
There are also wine tappers. They climb incredibly tall palm trees right to the top to get fresh palm wine every day. Palm wine is white and initially very sweet. The longer it stays, the stronger the alcoholic concentration. Palm wine collectors are experienced with many years of climbing these trees. It is not advisable for tourists to try. It is all the same fun watching the process.
More so, you can learn to make baskets with the handful of people producing baskets woven from plant fibers. These baskets are used by women to carry farm produce to their homes. Some of the baskets are sold or offered to tourists as souvenirs.
The women are mostly farmers, but they are more probably found at home than anywhere else. Their primary roles are childbearing, cooking, and housekeeping.
In a nutshell
Generally, travelling to, and being in the Baka land is mostly fun and exciting. You will encounter so much of the diminishing original African values and traditions, arts and lifestyle, and you will most certainly schedule a second visit.
