Going Tribal documents the adventures of former Royal Marine and expedition leader Bruce Parry as he travels the worlds most remote locations and experiences first-hand the cultures that live there. To best document the lives of these peoples, Parry lives with them for up to a month; sleeping, eating, hunting, and joining them in religious and social ceremonies. Although accompanied by a translator, Parry tries to integrate as much as possible with the culture of the people he is observing, often being adopted as a member of a particular family.

Really different
9 May 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I had no reason to watch this until i really understood what it was about. I mean we have all seen that kind of show, when some dude just walks in to the jungle and shows us some members of a tribe and just describes them straight out of a book. Takes some pictures and leaves.

This is made so different because Bruce (The host) really lives with these fascinating people and adapts to their way of living in every way. He becomes one of them for about a month. It gives a much better image of what's going on and how beautiful they are as humans. They appreciate life and what it's all about.

If you have a chance of seeing this then please do so you won't get disappointed and that's a promise.

Sorry for my not so perfect English...
