Announcing ETH Safari: The Greatest ETH Event in Africa | September 2022

posted in: NEWS

ETHSafari is an ETH event that will bridge the gap between the global and African ethereum ecosystems right here at Beneath The Baobabs in Kilifi, Kenya.



The Greatest ETH Event in Africa

ETHSafari (18th to 24th September) will be held in Kenya to bring together an auspicious group of 1,000 people from Africa and around the world to learn, hack, discuss, and celebrate the ethereum ecosystem, our decentralized future, the use cases that are transforming Africa, and the people that are building them in the continent.

We are all on this journey of decentralization together. The question is: Safari Wapi? Journey Where?


The event will host learning, hacking, speakers, discussions, and celebrations to showcase innovation around the region and bridge the gap between the global ethereum ecosystem and the African ecosystem. The event will feature five main tracks: DAOs, DeFi, Gaming, NFTs, and Impact.

For those that want to get up to speed before the hackathon, ETHSafari host a two-day bootcamp on September 18th to 19th with both live and online content. The hackathon will start on September 20th and run through September 22nd. It will pair teams with local and international mentors to take on critical challenges and will generally follow the five event tracks but any teams can enter.


ETHSafari core contributor Sunny Satva said “Great events leave space for others to bring their creativity and energy. We’ve purposely left lots of gaps in the Nairobi schedule so our local frens can host events and meetups.” On the 22nd, ETHSafari will board the “Blocktrain” aka the Madaraka Express from Nairobi to the coast through the Kenyan savannah and Tsavo National Park with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Hacker teams will hack aboard the train while others will attend talks and meetups in other train cars. 

The group will arrive at the venue, Beneath the Baobabs, in Kilifi to welcome drinks in the afternoon and a fireside chat in the evening. We will host a two-day conference to bring together global and local players as we strengthen the bonds between ecosystems. It will close with an epic celebration of a decentralized future on September 24th.


Also launching at ETHSafari will be artSTORM.nft is a sister project of ETHSafari to transform brown spaces around Kenya into Green Art Spaces together with our partners and the communities.
