Did you know? The Tonga people originally lived in the region which is now filled by the Kariba Dam. When the dam was built the Tonga relocated all around it, on both the Zimbabwe and Zambian sides. The Tonga hollow out tree trucks and large branches to create stompers which are then used to grind grain. Stompers make great planters. Turn them upside down and use them as stools, side tables and even light fittings.
