How To Get Here

Head towards Mombasa from Kilifi, past Komaza and past the Mandharini turning (Our old entrance), keep going 800 meters on the highway and you will see a Beneath the Baobabs / Twisted Fig sign on the left opposite Mnarani Secondary School
Go down the murram road 700m until you see an arrow pointing left, follow this road up the hill and follow around to the right until you enter our site. Keep coming down the road and you will reach the carpark next to our containers.


KISIMA first came to be as an added feature to the Beneath the Baobabs Festival in 2018/2019. The KISIMA Mind, Body & Soul area was dedicated to holistic practices, workshops, discussions – all centered around creating space for human connection, creativity and mutual understanding.

A Celebration for Mind, Body and Soul

The KISIMA festival is a transformational experience where we celebrate life and all its wonders and focus on finding balance between Mind, Body & Soul. And then we party to good music!

KISIMA will remain a part of the yearly Beneath the Baobabs Festival. We are excited to truly honour our wellness community with a dedicated festival as well!


At Beneath the Baobabs we believe that we are all united as Distant Relatives and our differences in spiritual practice only makes for a richer melting pot of humans!

Today’s world offers secularism and religion as the only two ways we can be as humans. We disagree.

KISIMA Soul is a space where people of all backgrounds and traditions come to connect to their wider consciousness.

We will open up the deeper corners of our tropical oasis for Ceremonies, Sharing Circles, Sound Therapy, Drumming Circles and Rituals, so that you can at once connect with yourself and the collective consciousness, no matter what your beliefs are.

Come to our Soul Workshops to fill your spiritual cup, let go of worldly limitations on what you should and shouldn’t believe and get in touch with your own divinity.

Expect soul nourishment, elevated consciousness and connection with your true self.


KISIMA Healing welcomes you to explore the offerings of our amazing Therapists ensconced within the natural environment of Beneath The Baobabs Venue.

The Healing Area offers the opportunity for you to have one on one with some amazing practitioners for some truly indulgent healing with Massage, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Trauma release therapy amongst a host of other offerings.
