A Different Way of Living
Meet the Team
This peaceful retreat is operated by a small team committed to welcoming travellers to a relaxing environment. Each of us has a unique story, touch and skills. After years of working together, we call ourselves a family, aiming at touching the hearts of those who come to stay with us. Karibuni!

One of my favourite things to do is gathering seasonal local ingredients, experimenting with flavours and seeing the expressions of the people that eat the food I prepare.
Whenever I am needed, I am there. A pipe breaks, I’ll fix it. Or do you wish to see a bush baby? I’ll show it to you. I love singing and I am a member of a choir; would you like to listen to my songs? I’ll sing them to you.
The lettuce you eat is the lettuce I grew. I love gardening, as I learned to understand how much food is connected with our wellbeing and health.
From housekeeping to assisting with cooking and at times, collecting the wild spinach with Flora. I was born in the Pare Mountains, the home of the Oysternut, an indigenous climber. So I know best how to integrate it into the traditional foods.
