Our Shop Less Ordinary

'Visiting Mulberry Mongoose was one of the definite high points of our trip to Zambia. The store and workshop are absolutely beautiful and the wonderful young women who work there are kind, generous, knowledgeable and dedicated to creating amazing and unique jewelry that reflects the traditions of their homeland.'-David B, Trip Advisor

We are based on the only tar road that runs from the South Luangwa National Park Gate to Mfuwe International airport.

What to Expect

It is said people first visit Zambia for the wildlife but come back time and again because of the warmth of our people. The Mulberry Mongoose team are famous for this hospitality.

We personally greet every guest and give 10 minute complimentary tour of our workshop. We teach you about snare traps and show you how we expertly upcycle them into jewelry. We even let you try making a bead yourself.

We then allow you to browse our extensive jewelry collection and are on hand to answer questions about our work and the community we live in.

It is an interactive activity and you can try our famous Snare Coiling Competition. 

You can then explore our award-winning shop which is renowned for an extensive collection of ethical jewelry for men and women.

We host private groups giving a special talk about life in the Luangwa and how our business started. This is followed by a workshop tour, shopping, and our snare coiling competition.

You can even book your own jewelry making activity!
