Ethical Cultural Experiences and Community Visits in Zimbabwe
Become a part of local communities with our Zimbabwe cultural experiences
Live like a Zimbabwean with Umdingi
We’ll accompany you to a local village where you’ll get to know local families and communities. You’ll also fully immerse yourself into the life of a Zimbabwean local. And you’ll do everything that they do on a day-to-day basis.
From collecting wood or water from a pump, helping to cook dinner on an open fire, to visiting communities and schools. Even helping local workers with building projects, farming or selling their wares. You’ll be accepted into the community by the warm, hospitable people that call Zimbabwe their home in a truly unforgettable trip.
great Reasons to add a cultural visit to your itinerary
It’s a way to give back to the community of Zimbabwe.
Experience, and immerse yourself in a world completely different from your own.
Spend time with, and get to know a local Zimbabwe village or family.
Ethical tourism – meeting Zimbabwe locals
We’re Zimbabweans ourselves. So, we want to do our part to give back to the local communities in the country we call our home. We would love our guests to experience the real, authentic Zimbabwe – not just the glossy tourist areas. Expand your horizons and find the beauty in the less-travelled path!
Giving back to the community
Please note that our Zimbabwe cultural experiences are not designed to make a profit. You’ll pay upfront for your guide’s time and support. However, we ask that you bring the rest of the money for this experience to give directly to the locals that you’ll visit. So, whether you visit a school, village, or someone’s home, your fee for the trip will go directly to them.
This is truly a humbling experience. You’ll be able to experience a world completely different to the one you live in. No iPhones, no TVs, and living with only the bare necessities. Yet you’ll still be welcomed with open arms as part of the community. We recommend our Zimbabwe cultural experiences particularly if you’re travelling with children, as it truly is an eye-opening and educational experience you’ll never forget.
Meet your cultural guide
Meet Clint, your Zimbabwe cultural experiences guide
Clint is a born adventurer, having spent most of his life exploring all that Zimbabwe has to offer. He’s also a well-known face in many of the communities that live in Zimbabwe. So, he’ll accompany you on your Zimbabwe cultural visit to help you get the most out of your experience. And as we only offer bespoke, private trips here at Umdingi, you’ll have complete access to your guide at all times.
Half-day, full day or multiple day trips available to suit you, but we recommend booking a full day or more to truly experience what Zimbabwe life has to offer.
Giving back to the Zimbabwe community
Please bear in mind that the hospitable locals you meet live lives very different to yours. However, they will still gladly invite you into their home and share their meal with you. And even gifts which cost us nothing will mean so much to the lives of the Zimbabwe locals. So, please give as generously as you can.
