Kavango Culture

The main focus of the Mbunza Living Museum is to provide visitors to the museum with a detailed and authentic insight into the traditional, precolonial culture. The Living Museum, situated at the Samsitu Lake , is a traditional village of the Kavango, who have lived in this area for centuries. The village has been built entirely from natural material. The actors of the Museum carry clothes made from self tanned leather and the traditional presentation covers everything from everyday life (traditional cuisine, fire making, basket and mat weaving, etc.) to bushwalks and fishing and finally to highly specialised techniques like blacksmithing, pottery and the making of drums.

The Mbunza Living Museum is situated about 14 km west of Rundu. Take the B10 to Nkurenkuru. After 10 km you will see our signboard. Follow the gravel road for another 4 km to reach the Living Museum.
