BENEATH THE BAOBABS

Beneath the Baobabs is a magical East African destination event space located at the end of the creek on the Kilifi coast of Kenya. We are also home to the acclaimed 3 day Beneath the Baobabs Festival (formerly Kilifi New Year).

Within a spectacular natural setting we have infrastructure to host up to 10,000 people and a mission to provide a safe platform fostering creativity, environmental sustainability, consciousness, community and freedom of expression, while showcasing East African music, art and culture.

Our three-day Beneath the Baobabs Festival is is the first ‘Carbon Neutral Festival in Africa’ and bans all single-use plastics.

Beneath the Baobabs, home to all artists and creatives, is a one of a kind secluded event space, with secret orange and lemon groves, hundreds of square meters of overhanging decks under the shade of a two-thousand year old majestic Baobab tree, and our now iconic Main Stage. Built with passion and care for the natural environment from the outset and a Leave No Trace approach to all events, Beneath the Baobabs is ready to safely host up to 10,000 people with up to 5 unique stages, bars and all the infrastructure required for a successful event.

OUR STORY

It’s taken us 7 years to grow our idea and start impacting on our mission. Taking on a new 50 acre site is both amazing and scary, but we are now ready to open up our magical venue to the wider community.

BTB THE VENUE

BtB is a hidden 50 acre natural gem, undiscovered and largely still unknown with wild orchards and ancient Baobabs.
Approaching 4 years in our new home, we’re now offering venue hire for our one-of-a-kind destination venue.

COVID – REACTION

Clearly COVID has dictated a great deal of our decisions at Beneath the Baobabs in 2020. Whilst the cancellation of Beneath the Baobabs Festival has been a necessary heartbreak for us all, there has been much to learn from this period.

REBRANDING OUR LANDMARK FESTIVAL

The time has come for our new year festival to evolve into much more, welcome to the many faces of Beneath the Baobabs…

NEW YEAR’S CANCELLATION

Due to recently increased curfew restrictions as well as various challenges for organizing large-sized events, we have taken the difficult decision not to host any events this New Year Period at Beneath the Baobabs.
