Yoga and Beer in the Wild in Kajiado

A road trip, yoga and a refreshing beer of your choice; sounds like balance! Which we could all use a little more of in the new year … If interested secure yourself a spot early.

A family event that will be an educative and fun activity for you to do with the little people in your life. See details here

Diani and other residents at the coast as well as vacationers should have this on their calendar. A typical day at the beach can be very meh but this event is likely to bring more excitement for sure.

Nairobi Restaurant week brings discounted prices on a host of restaurants across the country. Although official dates are yet to be announced, it has been something to look forward to since the launch in 2015. We expect it to be even bigger and better this year.
