The Living Museum of the Mbunza, a traditional School for Culture and at the same time a Communal Business for the Local People of the Kavango. With this sustainable project they will be able to preserve their traditional Culture and to generate an additional income. As with all Living Museums in Namibia the main focus of the Mbunza Living Museum is to provide visitors to the Museum with a detailed and authentic insight into the Traditional, pre-colonial 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 and the actors of the Museum carry clothes made from self- tanned, with Mangetti nut oil refined leather. An essential part of the interactive program of the Living Museum is the demonstration (and preservation) of the fishing and land cultivating Culture of the Mbunza. The traditional presentation covers everything from everyday life (traditional cuisine, fire making, basket and mat weaving, etc.) to bush walks and fishing and finally to highly specialized techniques like blacksmiths, pottery and the making of drums.
