Caprivi Traditional Village

The show village of Lizauli south of Kongola gives the chance to walk into the replica of a traditional homestead and have the workings of everyday life explained to you. Apart from the Chief’s house you will be shown a chicken pen and a granary, for example, and how Mahango porridge is cooked.

To wrap up the tour of one or two hours, a play which illustrates the legal system of a village community is performed for you: A ‘thief’ who has robbed a visitor is brought before the traditional village court. In Lizauli you can also buy the versatile, very pretty basket-ware which is made right there: waterproof document folders, for example. Proceeds from the show village are used for the community.
