Good to know

Good to know

Dr David Livingstone visited this village on more than one occasion, sitting under a giant mango tree in the middle of the square, to meet with the current chief. As the Chief viewed David Livingstone as an unbeliever, he was not allowed into the chief's compound. It was also two men from this village, long time retainers of David Livingstone, who carried his body all the way to the coast after he died near Lake Bangweulu. The descendants of these men still live in the village.

The current Chief Mukuni is a modern and enterprising man who is promoting tourism in his area while trying to minimize the adverse impact it might have on his people's way of life
