Join us for a Mukuni Village Tour as the Chief encourages visitors to his village which is home to some 7,000 Leya people.
Gain valuable knowledge of how an African village is run and the day-to- day routines of the people who live there. A headman will escort you around the village to show how traditional huts are made and decorated, to explain village politics and to answer any questions that you may have.
Chief Mukuni’s Village is a Royal village which was founded around the 13th Century. It is home to about 7,000 Leya people.
The chief has invited visitors into his village to get a glimpse of how his people have lived for generations and to learn a little about their traditional customs and beliefs.
The Chief’s guides and the people of the village are more than happy to show visitors their huts. They will show you inside, explain how they are built and decorated, introduce you to various craftsmen and women at work and ask you to taste some traditional foods and beer.
This is a working village, not a purpose built tourist attraction, and it is a privilege to be welcomed into their lifestyle.
