The Mutomboko is unique! It shows visitors something they can't get in other countries around the world. Visitors are always happy with the ceremony and go back to their places of origins and tell the story of Africa. With out these cultural traditional ceremonies, Zambia would be just another developing country in Africa with nothing different to offer.
Does the Mutomboko help in the development of tourism?
