The size of the plot is 15153 square meaPlot in found Muchenje, a village in Chobe, Botswana. It is 2.2 hectare tourism plot. Initially I was looking for funding to do a tented lodge, but eventually became more interested in doing a more cultural set up with traditional housing (with both modern and traditional interior). The aim is to also involve the locals to showcase their indigenous knowledge in terms of lifestyles, ancient technology, food and music and dance just to mention a few. This being meant to preserve local culture and give tourist an understanding of the Chobe culture. It is also aimed at empowering locals to make honest livelihoods from their culture.tres.
Kazungula even though the fastest growing village in an attractive tourism area it does not have an Entertainment and recreational centre that caters for its residents’ leisure needs. This presents a viable opportunity to construct an Entertainment & recreational centre to serve the leisure needs of the people of Kazungula and tourists at large.
We are to develop a Cultural village to provide accommodation and hospitality tourism related services in the vicinity of Okavango Eastern Panhandle (Mohembo to Gudigwa).

Mbamba Cultural Village and Recreational Park will give you an experience of meaningful contact with local communities, from a traditional lifestyle- you sure won’t regret stopping by! It must be one of the most original places you can stay to experience cultural diversity of the original inhabitants of the Batswana tribes – The Basarwa, Bayeyi, Baherero, Bambukushu and Basobia. It will typically manifest to show off traditional culture through model homes, entertainment, stories, mouthwatering cuisines and the local traditional sorghum and palm tree drinks, tools, clothing, household and agricultural activities.
Time has completely stood still here where the tribes are living as it has since time immemorial. Come and see their day-to-day life, virtually as it always was. Observe what they eat and where they sleep and whilst still ploughing their lands with teams of oxen and donkeys. They live basic lives, cooking over open fires, carrying water and goods on their heads from water sources.
The objective of the Mbamba cultural village is to enable visitors from all over the world as well as Batswana from all corners of the country to visit it and to maintain a positive interest in the Tswana cultural heritage, including language, customs and practices, rituals, dance, music, folklore, arts and crafts.
Our proposed Mbamba cultural village and Recreational Park is located 4km in the outskirts of Shorobe village on the Maun–Khwai road, in Botswana. It is only 30minutes drive from the Maun International Airport. The 12ha solar electrified cultural village offers safe and secure premises to stay and during your entire stay.
