Can Anyone Help with Traditional Games from Africa?

Tino wrote looking for help with traditional games:

My name is Tinotenda Hondo, programs officer for an NGO called African Fathers Initiative. We are interested in doing a project to document children’s games and traditional songs for various reasons. I cannot seem to find much on this topic on the internet and we are really interested in finding out what has already been documented so that our project has direction and so we do not spend time and resources re-inventing the wheel.

Can you help us with 1. games that boys played like Ndondo (played by tribes close to the Mozambique border), games girls play e.g. mai vaDhikondo (up to now i though it was a modern day song).

I am looking forward to hearing from you.



I found out about Ndondo and some other Shona games. If anyone can help out with info about mai vaDhikondo or other African games, please let us know in the comments below.
