Let me tell you my friend, it might seem a bit new thing to you, but the fun that lays behind any camping activity is unexplainable. Camping involves a group of various individuals who join together for a trip far away from the normal common places, to enjoy, connect more and the most important is to have fun.

Now my friend, Buni will be celebrating it’s five years of operation since establishment. We aim to connect the old and new community members into a dazzling camping night at Bagamoyo. With this, the community will have a greater sphere of people to connect with,interact with and network with. If you will miss this, there is no way you will recover from a disease called “lost fun”. I think you need to hear more, now this is the moment.

In the vast East African region, the economic growth of Dar es Salaam city over the last decade is remarkably recognized as a regional and Pan-African fastest growing city.

‘The African Development Bank reports in Tracking Africa’s Progress in Figures that Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city and the country’s trading hub, will outpace all other African cities in growth between 2010 and 2025, followed by Nairobi, Kenya; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo; Luanda, Angola; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’.

Efforts invested towards making Dar es Salaam an outstanding African city are made possible by the government’s active involvement in the course of providing better services to its people in order to improve on the living standards of the people and to a debatable extent minimize rural – urban migration rates that encourage concentration of government services and facilities such as education, health and technology which disadvantages growth in rural communities.
