Chief Mukuni’s Village is home to the Leya people and is made up of approximately 6000 residents.

Visitors can see how traditional huts are built and decorated, meet the residents and see the locals as they go about their days.

The Maramba Market is a bustling and colourful spot where local Zambians shop for everything from fruit and vegetable to clothing and bright “chitenge” or local fabrics. The vibrant and energetic atmosphere, with ample photo opportunities, is not to be missed.
