The name Nyungu Yamawe is synonymous with the King of the Nyamwezi people, in the Northern part of Tanzania and South-Western Uganda. The word Nyamwezi comes from Unyamwezi, meaning a people who used to travel when the full moon was up in the Sky. Most African migration occurred during the full moon season either due to tribal wars, sheer conquest power or diseases and disasters.
The Park therefore derives its breath from this strong African Heritage and identity in promoting Urban and Culture tourism. The desire to bring to life this part of history and identity, from the dusty history books into a living thing, is what inspired the development of this Park.
The Park is conserved as a green space, with over 20 Acre nature conservancy dedicated to creating a sustainability based adventure lifetime learning experience.
