Ready for an African adventure?! Or I guess we could say an African Safari! Africa is famous for its Native African Tribes. We love to hear stories and see pictures of people who are different than us. The indigenous peoples Africa are different than us here in the US. Many tribes wear colorful south African clothing and some tribes wear little or no clothes at all. There are hundreds, if not thousands of African tribes, each having their own south African languages, African folk tales, customs and traditions.

We can't begin to list them all here, but we have listed a few tribes under the countries they are located. It would be fun to look at an Africa outline map to see where each tribe lives in the vast continent that is Africa.
