Mukuni Village lies just seven kilometres from Victoria Falls, accessible by a good gravel road and home to the Leya people. For a site-seeing tour with a difference a visit to Mukuni Village is a popular choice for toursits traveling in the Southern Province of Zambia. Sadly most of the children from Mukuni have not seen the Victoria Falls.
We have partnered with Exquisite Safaris who promote Philanthropic Travel by sending their clients to visit a humanitarian project while on holiday. Exquisite Safaris donate some of their profits to The Butterfly Tree and our team on the ground meet the guests and give them a private tour of our projects. They get to meet the school children, visit the health centre and are able to interact with the people.
First visit to the Victoria Falls for Cynthia, Angela and Esnat, sponsored by Jane – philanthropic traveler
Feedbacks from these philanthropic travelers has been extremely worthwhile. Without exception everyone is completely moved and humbled by the sites the experience and many have said the visit was the highlight of their entire tour of Southern Africa. We now have many of them from the UK, Europe and the US offering on going support to the charity with over thirty tourists sponsoring orphans after meeting the children of Mukuni Village.
