Hakuna Matata-Mad fun in the Mud


Hakuna Matata Festival’s debut was on New Year’s Eve in 2013 and I can recall distinctly how it was the place everyone wanted to be. Sure the festival had predecessors like 6 am entertainment and what have you, but I have to give credit where it is due by admitting that the Hakuna Matata Festival had, and still has quite the following. Why you may ask? Perhaps it’s the reasonable price, the genre of music and definitely the strategic out of town set up or maybe, just maybe it’s that pizzazz, jazz and razmataz…that little extra something that I can’t quite put my finger on!

For years now festivals like Tomorrow land, Glastonbury and Coachella have been on my rather extensive bucket list. I think the idea of a carefree movement, and a group of people savoring decibels in unison is precisely why this sort of festivals will always work and that could be precisely why the Hakuna Matata festival has attracted such a following. Besides, imagine all the good vibes alcohol laden enthusiastic youth can create.

All work and no play...Team Building 2015


Team building is basically about fostering workplace relationships and fortifying much needed barriers between the different roles and hierarchies in an organization (with diplomacy of course, lest the subordinates bay for your blood later).

Ticketsasa and our friends at Pesapal and Verviant had one such arrangement about a week ago. We set out to Nakuru, enthusiasm in our hearts and booze in our trunks, with sincere hopes of achieving our own objectives, in conjunction with the generic goals every team has during these exercises.

Trying to catch the cheaters

An easy task twas not for this is one group that gives a whole new meaning to the term “different strokes”. Case in point: state an organization that has a bloke who was an instant millionaire in campus, a lass who once dealt with the dearly departed, a vivacious lady who rarely takes no for an answer, a principled young man who‘s been sporting a six piece incessantly since his first day, an avid blogger, a free spirited lady with quite the sense of adventure, a CEO with a slight inclination to boiled maize and bodaboda rides, our own resident James Bond, tenacious men, reserved women, volatile individuals, the narcissists, the family people, the over- achievers, the pessimists,  the couples - you name it! Now imagine trying to create a synergy between all these conflicting personalities. Well, that’s what we hoped our three nights at Punda Milias Tented Camp would do.
