Mukuni Village - Zambia

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.

A tour to the Mukuni Village is a 2 hour excursion, where you can 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 explain village politics and to answer any questions that a client may have. A highlight is for you to see Chief Mukuni's Palace.

You can also pre-arrange to have a taste of the traditional food and beer. There is also a large craft market in the village for you to buy some locally made crafts, even attempt to give it a go.

The departure time for this daily cultural activity is as requested. Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
