Traditional African Culture of the Caprivi

The Living Museum is an authentic open-air museum where guests can learn a lot about the traditional culture and the original way of living of the Mafwe. The Mafwe demonstrate and describe their traditions with great dedication and a 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.

Sleep under giant Baobabs

You can spend the night there at Baobab Campsite, a basic but very nice bushcamp close to the museum. You will hear the sound of the African Bush while you sleep under giant Baobab trees. Alternatively you can stay in one of the surrounding accommodation establishments in the Caprivi.
