Nestled at the foot of the Luaname Mountains, Fundudzi Cultural Camp is in the heart of traditional Venda territory. Just above the village of Mukumbani, this is an ideal place from which to explore a region famed for its sacred places and traditional Venda arts and crafts.
Fundudzi Cultural Camp has 5 stand-alone thatched rondavels, each with 2 single beds, chairs and a bedside stand. Linen is not provided as part of the tariff, but can be hired at a separate fee. This needs to be arranged at the time of booking.
The kitchen, dining and camp-fire facilities are communal, and give adventure travelers an ideal opportunity to get to meet and interact with other like-minded travellers. You will share a gas hob and camp fire for cooking, as well as fridge and freezer for storage of food. The necessary pots, crockery and cutlery are also supplied. Catering by local villagers can be arranged – please pre-order when booking. Ablutions are communal, with flush toilets, shower and basins.
There is no electricity, and paraffin or solar lanterns are provided for light at night.
For those wanting a closer understanding of some of the local rituals, a demonstration of the Domba Dance; python dance can be pre-arranged for evening entertainment at Fundudzi.
If self-catering, don’t forget to bring firewood. While it is safe to drink, some people don’t like the taste of the local water, so you are advised to bring your own bottled drinking water.
Visitors to Fundudzi have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a beautiful environment. In a hugely fertile valley with modern tea plantations, the real gems are the natural areas with forests, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. The area is well populated with rural villages and tourists will be spoilt for choice visiting crafters, manufacturers of Minwenda; traditional Venda clothing, Malungu; traditional beads and Makunda; traditional bangles. Many artists, potters and crafters work in the area.
