Guests get to walk around miniature villages that are built true to the style of the ethnic groups’ village that is represented. It is an excellent way to see the differences in building structures, and learn about how the native fauna and weather affects the style of hut that is built. After that they can watch a show that involves traditional dances and acrobatics from the various tribes.  There are also various plays that are performed on site.

Hungry guests can grab a bit at the Utamaduni Restaurant and then peruse the gift shop for authentic cultural gifts to take home as souvenirs. To learn more about them, visit their official website.
