Package Itinerary

Mua Mission is a gem in Central Malawi, famous for the quality of the wood carvings produced (and sold) there, and an interesting cultural museum. The standards of carvings are superb and the prices very reasonable.

This is the site of the KuNgoni Centre of Culture & Art, established in 1976 by a Canadian missionary Fr. Claude Boucher Chisale. Fr. Boucher has dedicated his life to researching, recording and preserving Malawian culture. The Centre has grown from an art co-operative to a vibrant cultural centre. It provides insights into the history and culture of Malawi through the Chamare Museum, the Carving Centre and the Research Centre/Library. The museum describes the Chewa, Ngoni amd Yao cultures, their rites of passage, their interaction with one another and their encounter with Islam and Christianity. It also holds a unique display of Gule Wamkulu masks, texts and images and dances can be arranged.

The mission acts as a school for wood carvers who can later make their own living from their handiwork throughout Malawi and beyond. They are very highly skilled and can be seen in action around the mission. Their work is on sale in a small shop.
