Evening Experience and Rates


Tailor-Made Evening Experiences are available from 7PM to 12AM
Evening Reading Room at Karakana

Under the glow of a bonfire with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, curl up with a book from our library or try out a traditional game of Bao. For all travellers having an evening flight, join us for a relaxing and personalized nighttime experience. Under the beat of traditional music, we have created together with our community partners a dance, which embodies the human spirit of resiliency. Get swept away by the music, the fire and the all time favorite midnight snacks that will be served throughout. Through collecting rain water, using recycled materials in the design (such as  leather from bush planes in Tanzania)  and creating a garden on site, we chose to make Karakana as ecologically responsible as possible. 

Beginning at 7PM  and open to 12AM, each evening experience you book includes the following ‘Night Provisions’:


1.) Bonfire & Traditional Welcome Dance by one of our Community Partners, Makini Organization
