Every year, the Chewa people of Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique come together to celebrate their heritage through the Kulamba Ceremony - a vibrant traditional festival and cultural event. It is usually held in August or September to mark the end of the agricultural season and pays homage to the ancestors' spirits in the eastern province.
Visitors enjoy and reflect on safari with a unique ceremonial experience and proceed to the South Luangwa National Park, followed by a memorable beach holiday at Lake Malawi. If you are passionate about African culture, history, and spirituality, then don't miss the opportunity to attend the Kulamba Ceremony in Zambia. An experience like no other!
