Kwa Mai Mai Market

People flock here in search of healers, and cures for all manner of physical and spiritual ailments. Dubbed Ezinyangeni – meaning the place of healers, the Mai Mai market preserves important aspects of indigenous knowledge. For visitors it is fascinating for its cultural richness and exotic offerings such as animal skins, muti (medicine) and traditional artefacts. Not a place for vegetarians or those offended by animal pelts. Best visited with a guide. MainStreetWalks offers tours of the area.
