Rural villages in Zimbabwe are comprised of individual homesteads, have a primary school (if they are fortunate) and a communal borehole, which supplies water for the entire village at a single point. The tour gives you an insight of another world experience, where a way of life continues as it has done for centuries, enabling you to go back in time. Visitors are also given the opportunity to watch local villagers going about their daily tasks. The tour enables the visitors to see tribal life first hand, visiting rural homes, watching their fields being tended and possibly getting the chance to help in some of the day-to-day chores.
