Mafwe Living Museum
Category: Living Museum
The Living Museum offers visitors an interesting insight into the life of the Mafwe. The Living Museum consists of a traditional village and its surrounding fields on a beautiful hill with a view on the Kwando River. Huge Baobab trees spend shadow for the guests that are interested in the original Mafwe Culture. The Mafwe present their old, almost forgotten culture in traditional dresses.
The actors of the Mafwe Living Museum demonstrate and describe everything with great dedication and the guide translates into English. Almost every offered program is interactive, because it is also great fun for them when the visitors try to weave a traditional net or taste some of the offered meals.
A visit to the Living Museum is an unforgettable experience!
