Beneath the Baobabs, Kenya
Beneath The Baobabs is a platform for local talent, a melting pot of global cultures, a brilliant source of inspiration and a haven for freedom of expression, with a strong commitment to conscious living and sustainability. BTB melds creativity with nature, to convey the connection we have with one another, with our environment and community.
Located in Kilifi town on the coast of Kenya and set beside the wild and stunning Takaungu Creek on the edge of the Indian Ocean, Beneath the Baobabs is a wild and magical 20-acre jungle site developed into a fully functional event space capable of hosting events of up to 10,000 people. Located on a pristine lush plateau along a wild and meandering green valley, home to secret wild orange and lemon orchards, bamboo forests, thousand-year-old baobabs and other ancient indigenous trees, Beneath the Baobabs hosts two remarkable flagship festivals: Kilifi New Year (from 30 Dec to Jan 2nd) and Kilifi Roots Festival (during Easter weekend – 20-22 April in 2019).
The rest of the year, this magical space is also available for hire for events of all sizes from small gatherings to large-scale events. The site features three stages, several hundred square meters of decks hanging over the valley’s edge under giant baobabs, two bars, a range of accommodation options, kilometers of underground water piping and power lines, a very powerful silent generator and its own water supply, a water park, beach volleyball court, a two story 250 square meter building and state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment and engineering, and many other features allowing us to design the most amazing life-changing experiences.
