Get entertained with Africans true secrets behind the traditional way of life presented in a magnificent setting from the Mubako Cultural Experience, the remote community of Mubako is located beside the sprawling Savannah of Murchison Falls National Park. The village is a cluster of traditional thatched huts around a clearing, where villagers gather to escape the midday sun under the shade of a large tree.
Mubako’s small craft shop sells carved wooden sculptures and handwoven items made by community members. At dusk, the local cultural groups perform vibrant songs and dances around the campfires of local lodges, accompanied by the beautiful sound of the adungu. Originating from this region, this instrument is made of cowhide and twine, and the harmonies of the various-sized adungus against the backdrop of a Nile sunset are magical.
There are few economic opportunities in this region and the climate makes farming hard, but with the money generated through tourism, the community can buy produce from local markets, pay school fees and support a nursery for 90 children.
Visitors returning from the mid morning game drives and those waiting for ferry crossing at the jetty landing on northern banks of Murchison Falls National Park have an additional attraction.
The emergence of a sensational Mubako cultural troupe with traditional guitars locally known as Adungu and drums accompanied by love and conservation lyrics are a source of attention.
