Home | Victoria Falls Activities | Tour of the craft village


Visit a traditional village and meet the local people.....

Prepare to be amazed as you enter a different world, where a way of life continues as it has done for centuries, enabling you to go back in time.

Sadly this Craft Village is no longer in operation. There are several other cultural activities on offer, like a traditional village tour, where you go out to a real African village and spend a couple of hours there seeing how their daily lives operate. There is a also a traditional home hosted lunch, where you can eat a traditional lunch of mealie meal and stew in a small house in the township of Victoria falls. Please contact us if you would like more information on these activities.


This tour is done together with the Tour of the Falls, after visiting the Victoria Falls you will be taken to the Traditional Craft Village.  In the village you will have a chance to to replica homes of the various tribes throughout Zimbabwe and Southern Africa.

The history of each tribe and how they have evolved will be explained during the tour.  There will be local people in the village performing traditional skills such as carving, basket weaving and even cooking.

You will be given the opportunity to shop in the adjoining curio market and shops for souvenirs and gifts.

Trips run daily between 8.00 and 8.30 / 13.20 and 13.45 from all hotels in Victoria Falls Hotels and the duration is about three hours.

If you are just wondering around the town of Victoria Falls the Craft Village is situated just behind the Post Office.  If you don't feel that you would want to take the organised  tour you are able to pay and visit the craft village on your own.  You will have the same magical experience.

It is well worth experiencing this mythical African side of Victoria Falls.
