Walk in Dr. David Livingstone's footsteps and sit under the "Meeting Place" tree where he and the Mukuni people met as they helped him find his way to discover Victoria Falls. Experience and discover the day to day traditional village life of the warm and vibrant Mukuni Village people from housing, agriculture, education and family through a cultural and historical tour. Here you'll find incredible, handmade arts and crafts that support fair trade and the people in the Historic Mukuni Village in Livingstone, Zambia. Getting to Mukuni Village is a simple 10-20 minute drive from most local resorts and Victoria Falls. While most every cab, taxi or livery driver know the location of the historic and traditional Mukuni Village, those who are new to the area or visiting should contact us to confirm driving directions. From Victoria Falls, on Livingstone Way / Mosi-Oa Tunya, head East on the road opposite The Royal Livingstone and Zambezi Sun Resorts. Follow it to Mukuni Rd and continue heading East onto Mukuni Rd. Where the road ends in front of an enormous mango tree, Chief Mukuni's Palace, the African Craft Market and where the Cultural Tours begin.
