This event with the community is an invitation to nature lovers, art lovers and adventure lovers. Come see, eat, dance and mingle.

This natures reserve is the epitome of beauty and tranquility whose peace and serenity will engulf you. This is where the ultimate magic happens, and your heart gets lost to Taita -Taveta where it finds home and hearth. 2 days in July that promise you an experience like non-other.

Mbulia farm. This is a ranch on flat land stretching many kilometers into the rising hills. It is a rugged traditional set up with a very beautiful view of the surrounding Taita Hills. In the evening the beautiful sunset is spectacular, watch the sun disappear into the Kilimanjaro and usher in a beautiful starry night while enjoying a bone fire and a warm cup of Chai.
