Haven’t you ever desired to recapture the wonder of Eden?
Have you ever looked above 74,000 hectares of green perfection?
We all need time away from the insanity of our daily work lives, to free ourselves by replenishing our spirits with nature.
Mabira Forest is all that. Home to Uganda’s largest forest, Mabira is an experience for the curious, adventurous and unafraid. On Friday 4 August, The Babishai Poetry Festival team launches their third festival with a trek across Mabira Forest. Poetry and nature are the perfect remedy after a long week at work. We will explore new terrains, roots and trees of thousands of years in age, be part of a chorus of birds that will not be found anywhere else and relive perfection.
The team will depart at 7:30am on Friday 4 August for Najjembe, Mabira. During the journey, we will begin shooting a documentary. There are those arriving from Eastern Uganda and Nairobi, whose arrangements will be detailed to them. Email [email protected] with your information. We have arranged for them, a camping excursion for a night, at Mabira Forest, on Thursday 3 August, after which we’ll all meet up the following day.
On arrival from Kampala on Friday 4th, an expert tour guide will meet us, take us on this dauntless trek, where we will stop for poetry breaks and refreshments. The documentary will continue.
After the trip, there will be a large buffet spread, during which the poetry performances will begin.
We will return to Kampala not later than 6:00pm.
We all need this!
