On-Site Camping

The 1 acre General Camping site at Beneath the Baobabs is a space to take advantage of. Fully shaded and with plenty of space to set up a home away from home; the General Campsite becomes a hub of life during a major event, and has the potential to become its own community outside of the event.

Delicately lit, with 8 Eco-Toilets and Showers and water access; camping deep within the Kilifi Forest Plateau couldn’t be better.

All Kisima Festival tickets include access to the camping area at no extra cost – just bring your own tent!

Musafir Dhow

The Musafir is a platform for the message of peace, freedom and unity.

She is a 70 foot traditional engineless dhow, built in Kipini (Kenya) with archaic techniques using locally sourced material with the support of dozens of volunteers and craftsmen. Musafir hosts a constantly evolving community of travellers and visionaries who facilitate co-creative projects with communities we meet on our travels. It is an experiment in conscious community living and collaborative cultural exchange. We are now docked in Kilifi Creek preparing for our biggest ever voyage to Indonesia in 2022.
