  • The owner of the House and spouse of the creator of that project called Mundhongo is a great hostess. His lectures on the trails showing their edible mushroom cultivation and everything about them is very educational and entertaining. Note that what makes this family makes it with passion and dedication. The family project is very original and worth knowing it and prove that delicacies that sell. For those who enjoy the culinary world in general, visit to Mundhongo can be fascinating. Products prices are not cheap, but worth it. In high season only Wednesday do not receive the public. The rest of the day is made two guided tours, one in the morning and another to the sunset, and they tend to last more than an hour and a half in general. It is usually pay a payment by visiting, that if you then buy any of the products is deducted the expense. Ideal for a free afternoon. Recommended.

  • Very cute place. Delicious products, nice lectures and visit to the forest. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday. The visit to the forest is at 11. I advise to be a minute before. No place to park.

  • Cute place. Passed us a video about the fungi that produce. They did so in an old television and with very little production. For the price that have the products offered, they may offer a better infrastructure. The mushrooms were very rich.
