Baraka meaning “blessing”, integrates lavish comfort and hi-tech conferencing facilities with an authentic African bush experience. Using the forest as a backdrop as well as inspiration in the conception of the Baraka, the venue incorporates a magnificent conferencing hall, private dining wine cellar, while being part of a unique free-release 8-hectare primate sanctuary.

The unique Baraka Conferencing Package offers a distinctive destination for breakaways, meetings, team-buildings and weddings.
The East-African inspired venue offers perfect privacy in a pristine setting, and can accommodate groups of between 80 and 120. Whether on the timber deck surrounded by the exotic primates in a natural habitat, private dining in the wine cellar, or a wedding where the ambiance is matched only by world-class service, Baraka will ensure your occasion is richly blessed, and remains a talking-point for years to come.
