Getting Cultural

Malapenga: you might be lucky enough to catch the local dancing groups as they compete with visiting dancers from Chizimulu Island. A serious affair for the dancers and they show off their moves very proudly to all who come to watch.

St. Peter's Cathedral:The must-see sight of the island. Near Mbamba town, over 100 years old and bigger than Winchester! Hopefully Vincent the verger will be there to give you the grand tour – always entertaining!


Katundu Textile workshop:

The Workshop employs single mothers selected from the local orphan program, creating employment, independency and income in an area where jobs are scarce.

These women handcraft a range of items using local materials, and natural resources, which capture the colours, patterns and culture hidden deep within the island life.


You can go and visit the workshop which is a short walk or boat trip away. Choose your own materials and design to create a product that will leave you remembering the island
