Tsonga Kraal Museum back to top

Situated in the Hans Merensky Nature Reserve this museum represents the cultural products and building styles of the North Tsonga tribes. The tribes were comprised of refuge groups from the Southern parts of Mozambique.


The Museum attempts to show as many building styles as possible. The homestead of a Chief with eight wives was the basis around which the kraal was fashioned. The arrangement of the huts follows a set pattern but many variations of the pattern are found in the area. The kraal was built entirely from traditional materials. Mopane poles bound to mopane bark forms the framework of most huts, and clay from anthills were used for the floors and walls. Different coloured soils were used to make up the paint decorating the walls
