Rich with traditions that survived thousands of years, these African tribes are an explorers dream


Yoruba People Gathered

The Yoruba reside in Southwestern Nigeria and Benin. Fourth on our list, Yoruba must be a special part of this beautiful legacy created by the popular African tribes for a number of reasons. For one, it is the largest in Africa in terms of ethnicity with a total of 35 million natives.

Instead of being one individual group, the Yoruba are an amalgamation of various people who share a common language, culture, and overall history. Next up on our top ten list is the Xhosa.

  1. This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
