The anticipation was palpable as I embarked on a journey that promised a harmonious blend of music, nature, and adventure. The destination: Secret Shamba, a unique music festival hosted in the heart of Kenya's Borana Conservancy. But this adventure was not complete without the impeccable planning and hospitality of Nomad Africa, who ensured our stay at the luxurious Lengishu house was nothing short of extraordinary.

The Enigmatic Allure of Secret Shamba

As I approached the vast expanse of Borana Conservancy, the anticipation grew. The festival, set against the backdrop of Borana's rolling hills and open savannah, featured an eclectic lineup of DJs. The rhythm of the music, the energy of the crowd, and the serenity of the natural surroundings created a unique and immersive experience. It was a delightful juxtaposition of a pulsating beat and the tranquil African wilderness.

Secret Shamba, an exclusive and intimate music festival, is a well-kept secret that combines world-class music with the untamed beauty of the Kenyan wilderness. It's an experience that promises both auditory and visual delights.

My journey to Secret Shamba was elevated to a whole new level thanks to the meticulous planning by Nomad Africa. We were privileged to stay at Lengishu house, a marvel of architectural elegance nestled in Borana Conservancy. This beautiful retreat allowed us to immerse ourselves in the pristine natural environment while enjoying the comforts of a luxurious home.

Lengishu house boasts breathtaking panoramic views, and each morning, I was greeted by the sight of wandering wildlife, including giraffes, zebras, and antelopes. The house's warm and inviting atmosphere, along with its dedicated staff, made it a home away from home. The evenings were spent under the star-studded African sky, indulging in delicious cuisine and recounting the day's adventures.


Music, Nature, and Beyond

The days were filled with music, exploration, and safari adventures throughout the Borana Conservancy. Game drives allowed us to encounter the "Big Five '' and more, and the conservancy's dedication to wildlife conservation was evident at every turn. Then, later at night, Secret Shamba presented an exceptional lineup of artists whose tunes had us dancing under the stars.  As my journey came to an end, I couldn't help but reflect on the incredible experiences that both Secret Shamba and Nomad Africa had offered. It was a harmonious symphony of music and nature, a reminder that Kenya's landscapes are not only the backdrop to extraordinary adventures but an integral part of the experience.

The combination of Secret Shamba's beats and Nomad Africa's seamless travel planning created an unforgettable adventure that will resonate in my heart forever. The secret is out, and I can't wait to return for another unforgettable experience in the heart of Borana Conservancy.
