On the outskirts of Victoria Falls, lies an African homestead which goes by the name of Mpisi’s Village. This Zimbabwean village is steeped in local Ndebele culture, and home to the Mpisi family. Their traditional huts and communal living area truly depict the culturally rich lifestyle of Africa.

 

Our interactive workshops ignite and fulfil cultural curiosity. A private tutor, one of the chief’s sons, will be on site to guide the workshop – a truly hidden talent on the Zimbabwean art scene. Spend time immersed in local culture, along with a traditional meal to conclude the workshop. Catching memories through oils, watercolours, beading or finger painting, a piece of Africa will be taken home – in one’s own shade of expression.

 

Workshops are set up and prepared for guest arrival. All materials are included, and each finished piece taken home by the client.
