Cafe Ubuntu is open for business!
Cafe Ubuntu in Maai Mahiu is not only the only source of espresso outside of Nairobi en route to the Maasai Mara but is also conveniently located near both Lake Naviasha and Lake Nakuru National Parks.
The café will be self-sustaining, create jobs in the local community by drawing in tourists en route to the Maasai Mara, Nakuru and Naivasha, and will empower the community by providing education about sustainable farming.
Cafe Ubuntu, in partnership with Allegro Coffee also hopes to give Kenyans, who grow some of the best coffee in the world but love their tea, an opportunity to experience one of the country's largest exports the way we do everyday. They also hope the cafe will provide a space for local Kenyans and tourists to interact.
Most importantly, the café’s menu sounds delicious! It features crepes, espresso and farm-to-table options (including pizza!) catered to the tastes of the local community. Café Ubuntu is also working directly with Brown's Cheese, the largest local Kenyan cheese distributor, to boost business for local goat herders by providing milk for goat cheese.
Last, but definitely not least...Cafe Ubuntu will offer modern bathroom accommodations for guests!
We are particularly excited about Cafe Ubuntu because it is the brainchild of CTC International, an amazing organization that participated in our Fashion Designers Without Borders trip to Kenya last year. Find out more about that trip here or watch a video from last year's trip including the visit to CTC.
Café Ubuntu is situated 1.5Km from Maai Mahiu Town on your way to Naivasha on your left.
They operate from Monday to Sunday from 8.00 a.m to 6.00 p.m
