Welcome to the Namwala Cultural and Traditional Trust – NACTT 

We are a not for profit organization registered under the Trustee Act Laws of Zambia. 


We exist to enhance the socio economic, cultural and ecological diversities of the Namwala region of Southern Zambia (whose people are the Ba Ila, an ancient tradition of transhumance pastoralists with its origins in the Stone Age).

We do this by providing focused and efficient research in response to stakeholder-led demand-driven research.

Our Mission
