Mubaku community dance performance, Uganda – Day Tour

Mbaku village is a multi-cultured community with a mixture of Alur, Banyoro, Bagungu and Acholi people, all collectively presenting an intense dance performance that will leave you in amazement. The community plays African instruments including the Adungu accompanied by one of the happiest people you will see in the real African setting.

The wonderful moments start with the visitation to Mubaku community during your trip to Murchison falls national park.Mubaku performance is arranged at a campfire that collects all the village members to relax and enjoy themselves, commonly visited by tourists from various lodges around Murchison falls National Park. The revenue collected from the dance performance and other donations are used to support local community development in areas of education for the children, conservation programs, health and other awareness projects.

  • Enjoy the unique sounds of the Adungus and the unusual percussion – all these instruments are made by hand!

Responsible Travel

  • Mubaku Community has no access to Murchison Falls National Park, which means the people cannot hunt or fish there. Generating income through village tours, the sale of handicrafts and cultural performances gives residents to benefit from the Park, as it brings tourists to the region.
  • Farming is difficult here thanks to the dry climate, and a limited diet can lead to malnutrition. There are few economic opportunities here, but with the money they earn from tourism, the community can buy produce from local markets.
  • The money also allows them to pay school fees, and to support a local nursery, which has around 90 children aged from 2-6 years.
