Boma La Mama Baby Products

We have started this awesome line of baby products in the village!  Our tailor Harrieth is amazing and items are turning out so well.

We are making baby carriers, sleepsacs, slippers, bandana bibs, crinkle and ribbon toys; using absolutely gorgeous kitenge fabrics.

We sold out our first order and have sold the second order that is in production.  We have a few custom orders in the works, and are applying to sell at the Arusha Christmas market. Harrieth is going to move into a bigger workspace where we will have a small store front too.

We are also going to make some baby body butter and diaper cream using locally sourced ingredients; coconut, aloe, honey, beeswax, shea….. mmmm

So pleased for Harrieth, for the beautiful products, and excited to see what the future will bring.

Testimonial! Keri-Lyn, Canada, 2018

I stayed with Leesha and Lau and family on a 6 week trip through Tanzania. I’ve known Leesha for many years and it was wonderful to reunite with her in Mto Wa Mbu. They showed me around the village, introduced me to their community and I got to witness the passion and inspiration that lives in their entrepreneurial projects. I had such an incredible time in the village. The people are kind and welcoming, the scenery of the Rift Valley walls and Lake Mayanara stunning. I shared some art classes, visited the market regularly, enjoyed the local food and hit the dance floor for a little nightlife! I highly receommend connecting with Boma Africa. Mto Wa Mbu is the perfect place to set out for safari or take some time to relax and settle in and make some friends after travelling around. I hope to make it back one day!! Thank you for being such amazing hosts! xoxo

Tanzania Featured in National Geographic’s “Best Trips of 2018”

Of course Tanzania is featured, it’s so amazing!  They highlight the serene Ruaha National Park- it’s Tanzania’s largest park and is found on the Southern Safari circuit so is relatively quiet when it comes to tourist volume.

Ruaha National Park

This is Tanzania’s second largest park, and deemed also the second wildest park in Tanzania. Game routes follow the Ruaha River, where wildlife of all kinds migrates to catch a drink of life nourishing water. Leopards and lions wait in the grasses while antelope shyly make their way to the water’s edge, quickly sipping before escaping to safety! Ruaha has the distinction of housing a great diversity of antelope, affecting this park’s ecosystem to be unique, abundant, and magnificent.
