WHO WE ARE

We are a passionate group of designers, thinkers and beauty seekers driven by a mission to encourage heritage and culture awareness in order to create lasting sustainable impact.

We believe the uniqueness of Africa’s people. culture and ecosystems make for settings where users of settlements can create intergenerational memories and enrich their lives in sanctuaries of human balance in context.

We understand that communities live and their heritage survives when their economies thrive, and we believe that the preservation of that heritage can be a stimulus for place-based, long-term prosperity.

We specialize in

Cultural
Landscapes

Understanding how to read and manage cultural landscapes is key to the creative stewardship of special places. Mambo Heritage has prepared cultural landscape plans and assessments for regional landscapes, national parks, urban public space, and historic communities.

Historic/Indigenous Communities

We help communities strengthen their character alongside and with the support of Community-Based Organisations (CBO’s) to revitalize their economies, and enhance their quality of life. We are experienced in community planning and consensus-building.

Heritage Areas

National and county areas, we help regions recognize their heritage, revitalize communities, promote stewardship and coordinate tourism through broad-based strategies and partnerships. Mambo Heritage is experienced in planning, interpreting and implementing heritage areas.

Historic & Cultural Properties

We prepare master plans, preservation plans, management plans, and design and implementation projects for historic and new development properties.

DIGITAL

Digitisation of cultural heritage can be a crucial tool in today’s efforts towards the decolonization, conservation, renovation, study and promotion of African cultural resources. Digital heritage is made up of computer-based materials of enduring value that should be kept for future generations.

NARRATIVE

Current and past developments such as the changing vision on the narrative of African heritage from an exclusive ‘ubstantial’ to a more anthropological perspective and the changing meaning of it from a top-down to a bottom-up ‘right to heritage’ imply a shift in heritage paradigms. An innovative and strategic reflection on heritage research and an interdisciplinary approach is required.

ARCHIVE

Archives are the documented memory of the nation. Archives inform the future by helping us to learn from the past. Archives serve as documentary evidence of the individuals or governments that created them. As such, citizens have a right to review such records to learn more about their national heritage.

Mambo Heritage is aligned with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goal’s (SDG’s), using heritage strategies to better understand how to recognize the character of a place and use that character to achieve community – centred goals.
