What does the Center offer:
Guided Eco Treks
Bambui is a land of beautiful natural resources. The Northern highlands are beautified by interlocking spurs and waterfalls. The highlands are spotted with indigenous forests, interspersed with savanna vegetation. For more information on the treks available, click here.
Art & Crafts
Bambui hosts a very creative and diverse community with many craftsmen, craftswomen and artists. With the Center, they have now been identified and have been encouraged to pursuit crafting as a way to promote their culture and traditions, and as a new source income. The center exhibits the best of Bambui’s crafts and arts; with a very good diversity of products always with the best quality and design.
