The Living Museum of the Mafwe
The Living Museum of the Mafwe was opened in February 2008 and is shaping well at the moment. It can be regarded as a highlight for tourism in the Caprivi, in the north of Namibia.
The presentation of traditional Mafwe culture.
The Living Museum offers visitors an interesting insight into the life of the Mafwe. 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. They demonstrate and describe everything with great dedication and the 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.
You can spend the night there on a basic bushcamp (which we are going to turn into a official campsite soon) close to the museum or stay in one of the surrounding accomodation establishments.
A visit to the Living Museum is an unforgettable experience!
